Using Supercomputers to Visualize Big Data
Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory, one of the U.S. Department of Energy's foremost research centers, is offering a rare glimpse into how scientists are using incredibly powerful computers to harness and capitalize on big data.

From smarter climate modeling to more efficient engineering R&D, the applications of big data visualization are varied and valuable.

Broadcasting live from the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, some of the world's leading figures in high-performance computing will give you a tour that will include a look-in on Mira, the fifth-fastest supercomputer in the world.
