Back to work!

After vacation time, we are getting back to work! There are some significant
goals in front of the U@H and we still count on your help!

First of all, we are continuing our cooperation with Cambridge and Ferrara.
Scientist are becoming more and more aware of the project and appreciate the
help in obtaining necessary data. The manuscript about ULXs should be published
in the nearest future. We think the conclusions will bring about a vivid
discussion. We are also preparing large-scale simulations for the BHspin
application which will provide valuable predictions of gravitational waves for
the next LIGO runs.

From the technical point of view, we are going to make several improvements this
year. An additional server for processing data will be installed. Additionally,
applications will be adapted for the GPU computing. We also plan to establish a
database with public access which will store the results and possibly provide
some visualisation tools.

As always, we will keep you informed on the progress and your feedback will
still be highly appreciated!

U@H team

--------------------------------------------------------

Po wakacjach wracamy do pracy! Przed U@H wiele wyzwań i nadal liczymy na Waszą
pomoc! Przede wszystkim nadal kontynuujemy współpracę z Cambridge i Ferrarą.
Naukowcy coraz częściej słyszą o projekcie i doceniają pomoc w pozyskiwaniu
danych. Praca dotycząca ULXów zostanie wkrótce opublikowana. Sądzimy, że wnioski
wywołają żywą dyskusję. Przygotowujemy również wielkoskalowe symulacje na
aplikację BHspin. Dostarczy ona ważnych prognoz na temat fal grawitacyjnych
dla kolejnych obserwacji LIGO.

Od strony technicznej, dokonamy w tym roku kilku ulepszeń. Zainstalujemy
dodatkowy serwer do przetwarzania danych. Ponadto dostosujemy aplikacje do
obliczeń na GPU. Planujemy również stworzyć bazę danych z dostępem publicznym,
która będzie służyła przechowywaniu wyników i być może dostarczy również
narzędzi do ich wizualizacji.

Jak zawsze będziemy Was informować o postępach i bardzo cenić Wasze uwagi!

Read about Nebula, a new and faster back end for SETI@home. Nebula removes RFI and finds persistent signals. Its goal is to let us finish the current SETI@home experiment.


Server maintenance

Today we had ordered two SSD drives for our server. The drives will be used for database use which should significantly improve server performance.
I will setup it on Friday or Saturday depend of delivery day and during the process server will be switched off.


ARM64 (aarch64) Android client in beta testing

This is a bare bones client without NEON optimized routines for SETI@home, but does have NEON FFTW routines. It'll be a while before I can modify the ARMv6 NEON routines to work when compiled under aarch64.


OpenZika Researchers Choosing and Testing Potential Antivirals

The OpenZika researchers are ready to begin laboratory testing for five chemical compounds which may lead to potential treatments. In this update, the research team discusses why the search for an anti-Zika drug is so important, describes the process of choosing which drug compounds to test, and summarizes the work they and IBM have done (so far) to publicize this study.

Hello Crunchers, I have just put out application version 900 for owners of Pascal GPUs. To test this you need: * A Geforce 10-series or Tesla P-series GPU * 64 bit Windows 7 or later * NVIDIA Driver 360+ * Accept beta work, and WUs from the acemdbeta and acemdshort applications Please report all problems in this thread.

Sorry for my recent inactivity. A paper has been posted on arxiv for this project at https://arxiv.org/abs/1603.03301, and has been submitted for publication. I would like to thank all the volunteers who contributed their resources to this project. The project will no longer generate new work, but will incorporate any results received.


Trochę informacji teoretycznych na temat aplikacji GPU

mercredi 26 octobre 2016 14:24

Ze względu na ograniczenia silnika forum, zdecydowałem się na opublikowanie posta o teoretycznym aspekcie pracy nad naszą aplikacją GPU na blogu DobreProgramy

I have published some theoretical informations about GPU aspects of our application on DobreProgramy portal (in Polish).


I'm a postdoc!

Hey! I guess I forgot to tell you guys, but better late than never :P I successfully defended my Ph.D. on the 16th of September! Now I'm continuing for a while as a postdoc in your good-ole well-known lab. I would like to thank you all for making this possible! Without you* I would never have done all this cool research, publications and completed my thesis. Many, many thanks and to further awesome research! * and your awesome GPUs :D
