Technological Resources

High Performance Computing (HPC) is a type of computing in which large amounts of resources are used intensively to solve a problem. Big Data involves processing large amounts of data to find repetitive patterns within that data. GPU-accelerated computing is the use of the GPU along with a CPU to accelerate scientific, analytical, engineering, consumer, and business applications
