(University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) Multi-institutional partnership formed to safely preserve three petabytes of data from the collapsed Arecibo radio telescope. NSF-funded XSEDE-allocated Ranch system of Texas Advanced Computing Center, UT Austin will store and make available Arecibo data to researchers. Data storage is part of NSF's efforts to support the Arecibo Observatory's future.

(University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) NASA JPL are developing autonomous capabilities that could allow future Mars rovers to go farther, faster and do more science. Training machine learning models on the Maverick2 supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, their team developed and optimized models for Drive-By Science and Energy-Optimal Autonomous Navigation. The team presented results of their work at the IEEE Aerospace Conference in March 2020. The project was a finalist for the NASA Software Award.

(University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) Metal additive manufacturing (AM) experiments are slow and expensive. Engineers from the University of Illinois are using physics-informed neural networks to predict the outcomes of complex processes involved in AM. The team trained the model on supercomputers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center using experimental and simulated data. They recreated the dynamics of two benchmark experiments in metal AM. The method could lead to fast prediction tools for AM in the future.

(University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) Quantum chromodynamics, or QCD, is the theory of the strong interaction between quarks and gluons. Lattice QCD uses supercomputers to explore 'tantalizing hints' of new physics in discrepancies between experimental and theoretical results. Carleton DeTar and Steven Gottlieb, two of the leading contemporary scholars of QCD research, are using the Frontera supercomputer at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to explore the 'anomalous magnetic moment of the muon' and measurements of the decay of B mesons.

The University of Texas at Austin, will soon be home to one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world.

The National Science Foundation awarded a $60 million grant to the school's Texas Advanced Computing Center, UT Austin and NSF said Wednesday.

The supercomputer, named Frontera, is set to become operational roughly a year from now in 2019, and will be "among the most powerful in the world," according to a statement.

To be exact, it will be the fifth most powerful in the world, third most powerful in the US, and the most powerful at a university.

"Supercomputers-- like telescopes for astronomy or particle accelerators for physics-- are essential research instruments that are needed to answer questions that can't be explored in the lab or in the field," said Dan Stanzione, executive director of the Texas Advanced Computing Center in the statement.

Frontera will help researchers study topics like global climate modeling, particle collisions from the Large Hadron Collider, and even hurricane forecasting.

(University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) Supercomputer simulations allocated by XSEDE on TACC's Stampede2 have helped solve the mystery of how actin filaments polymerize. University of Chicago and Yale researchers employed all-atom molecular dynamics to show structural basis for polymerization kinetics at polarized ends of actin filaments. This fundamental research could be applied to treatments to stop cancer spread, develop self-healing materials, and more.

Look above the traffic light at a busy intersection in your city and you will probably see a camera.

These devices may have been installed to monitor traffic conditions and provide visuals in the case of a collision.

Can they help planners optimize traffic flow or identify sites that are most likely to have accidents?

Together, they are working to develop tools that allow sophisticated, searchable traffic analyses using deep learning and data mining.

At the IEEE International Conference on Big Data this month, they will present a new deep learning tool that uses raw traffic camera footage from City of Austin cameras to recognize objects - people, cars, buses, trucks, bicycles, motorcycles and traffic lights - and characterize how those objects move and interact.

"We are hoping to develop a flexible and efficient system to aid traffic researchers and decision-makers for dynamic, real-life analysis needs," said Weijia Xu, a research scientist who leads the Data Mining & Statistics Group at TACC.
