​Linux Totally Dominates Supercomputers

Linux rules supercomputing. This day has been coming since 1998, when Linux first appeared on the TOP500 Supercomputer list. Today it finally happened: All 500 of the world's fastest supercomputers are running Linux. The last two non-Linux systems, a pair of Chinese IBM POWER computers running AIX...

GPU Computing: The Key to Unleashing the Mysteries of All That Data

To effectively handle all the data being created in the world today, we need GPU computing. To harness this goldmine of data, artificial intelligence and machine learning has emerged, which uses algorithms to train data to find patterns. The problem is, traditional CPUs (central processing units)...

Intel Takes First Steps To Universal Quantum Computing

Someone is going to commercialize a general purpose, universal quantum computer first, and Intel wants to be the first. So does Google. So does IBM. And D-Wave is pretty sure it already has done this, even if many academics and a slew of upstart competitors don’t agree. What we can all agree on is...

Electric Cars, Open Source Summit, and Linux Server Innovation

This article was sponsored and written by IBM. The first electric car was produced in the late 19th century, and by 1900 more than a quarter of cars were electric. Then the internal combustion engine took over, and for a century it dominated. Now, however, electric cars are making a comeback, and...
