Adéu, Barcelona.

The sea through the train window

Well, I’m writing this from back home in Norway after a great summer in Barcelona! This time, I’ve decided not to write so much hard scientific stuff as before. For that, I refer back to my two previous posts one on

Breaking the 4th dimensional wall of object tracking

another brick in the wall

My first Monday morning in Copenhagen, Konstantinos and I met the guys working at the Niels Bohr Institute and we had a very delicious breakfast together. Seriously, Danish pastries are so good I can understand why the Danes named them

That’s hot

Over the past decades, the planet has been experiencing worldwide climate change. In particular, the global warming process is characterized by drastic weather events, such as long periods of drought, or short intense precipitation. These can crucially affect vegetation and

Accelerating iterative solvers by chance

tools of the trade

The project I have laid my hands on goes under the fancy title of Hybrid Monte Carlo Method for Matrix Computation on P100 GPUs Now most will understand the ending, but not the beginning of the above. Thus I’ll endeavor

Full speed ahead – Accelerating ocean simulations

Coastal wave propagation Atlantic veros ocean simulation

How will Earth’s climate change in the next century? This is the kind of questions climate researchers ask themselves and the reason they develop global climate models. These are used to simulate conditions over long periods of time and under

Artificial Brains for enhancing Crowd Simulations?!

A visualisation of a biological neural network.

Hi all, In my previous post I introduced myself and the SoHPC programme. Now it’s time for my project. Why Crowd Simulation? Throughout history, humankind has had a clear preference for grouping together in larger and larger groups. On the global scale, 54
