The Chicago Quantum Exchange, a growing intellectual hub for the research and development of quantum technology, has added to its community seven new corporate partners in computing, technology and finance that are working to bring about and primed to take advantage...
Accurate and widespread testing is crucial to managing the coronavirus pandemic, but many people in the U.S. still can’t get tested for COVID-19 without visiting designated sites. A new research project could lead to a solution: an affordable, at-home test that offers...
Quantum communication has the potential to become the ultimate secure communication channel. Not only is it nearly impossible to eavesdrop on quantum communication, but those who try will also leave evidence of their indiscretions. However, the technology is still in...

Today’s scientific applications can run on hundreds of thousands of processors and produce massive amounts of data. To meet such requirements, high-performance computing (HPC) systems have grown in size and complexity, incorporating data analysis in addition to computational modeling. In this context, an important key to high performance is data management, which includes not only I/O but also analysis of data in situ in order to obtain scientific insight.

From Valyrian steel to snow anchors, storytelling relies on science to drawn in and keep an audience. Just as important is how they can use deviations from real-life science effectively without pushing the audience out of the story. This talk with focus on how many of the pop culture juggernauts incorporate science, whether consciously or unintentionally, to strengthen the story and audience engagement.
We manage one of the world’s most preeminent research networks. From historic experiments in nuclear energy, developmental biology, and particle physics to today’s challenges of renewable power, dark matter, and microbial ecology, these institutions have long been at the vanguard of discovery.
