Dassault, NIMHANS, and UberCloud Foster Innovative Non-Invasive Neuro-Stimulation of the Brain to Treat Schizophrenia, with High Performance Computing

Nimhans for Newsletter

In the last six years UberCloud has performed 200 cloud experiments with engineers and scientists and their complex applications. This latest HPC cloud experiment is based on computer simulations of a novel non-invasive transcranial electro-stimulation of the human brain to treat schizophrenia. The experiment has been collaboratively performed by the National Institute of Mental Health & Neuro Sciences in India (NIMHANS), Dassault SIMULIA, Advania, and UberCloud, and generously sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel. The current work demonstrates the high value of computational modeling and simulation in improving the clinical application of non-invasive transcranial electro-stimulation of the human brain in schizophrenia. This article is an extension of a shorter version which appeared in HPCwire.

Software Licensing to Run ANSYS in the Cloud

ANSYS UberCloud smallThese days, for many engineers running their simulations in the cloud makes a lot of sense. Armed with the best computing environment including a comfortable desktop GUI and top-notch cloud resources, all you have to do is start running ANSYS Cloud simulations… But, the last piece of the puzzle to consider is how your ANSYS licensing is going to green-light all of these newfound cloud capabilities. In this Blog UberCloud’s David Waltzman looks at several ways to accomplish this with UberCloud: pinging your on-premise ANSYS license server; hosting your ANSYS license server in the cloud; or hosting ANSYS Elastic Units in the cloud. Read more about all three options HERE.

Leveraging the Full Power of CAE in the Cloud

Team 183 smallIn late 2014 a new revolution for CAE was announced: Democratization of CAE: Leveraging the full power of CAE by capturing the CAE engineers’ knowledge and making it available to a larger group of users – access to powerful CAE for every engineer and designer. More than three years later it is time for an interim review. Over the past few years all major Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) have expanded their portfolio with technology that enables for democratization of CAE, e.g., ANSYS’ recent introduction of ANSYS Discovery Live, Siemens’ Simcenter 3D offering simulation templates and guided workflows, or COMSOL’s Application Builder and COMSOL ServerTM. Not long ago this was wishful thinking, but now the deployment of such applications is now at your fingertips. The ISVs, HPC cloud and service providers have paved the way with modern software, licensing and right infrastructure for HPC in the cloud – enhancing and transforming the CAE workflow as you know it.

Living Heart Project: Using HPC in the Cloud to Save Lives

Burak Francisco smallThis talk at the Stanford HPC Conference has been presented jointly by Burak Yenier from UberCloud and Francisco Sahli from Stanford University’s Living Matter Lab. “Cardiac arrhythmia can be a potentially lethal side effect of medications. During this condition, the electrical activity of the heart turns chaotic, decimating its pumping function, thus diminishing the circulation of blood through the body. Before a new drug reaches the market, pharmaceutical companies need to check for the risk of inducing arrhythmias. Currently, this process takes years and involves costly animal and human studies. In this project, Stanford’s Living Matter Lab developed a software tool enabling drug developers to quickly assess the viability of a new compound. This means better and safer drugs to improve patients’ lives.” This video on insideHPC looks at how HPC in the Cloud is being used to prevent severe side effects and save lives.”

Team 199: HPC Cloud Performance of Peptide Benchmark Using LAMMPS Molecular Dynamics Package

Team 199-3

UberCloud Team 199 led by Scott W. Sides, Senior Scientist at Tech-X Research in Boulder, studied adhesion dynamics for surface-tethered chains entangled in a polymer melt, using the molecular dynamics package LAMMPS which is widely used in academia and some industries. LAMMPS has potentials for solid-state materials (metals, semiconductors) and soft matter (biomolecules, polymers) and coarse-grained or mesoscopic systems. It can be used to model atoms or, more generically, as a parallel particle simulator at the atomic, meso, or continuum scale. In a first step of this cloud experiment the LAMMPS code has been ‘containerized’, and then the simulations have been performed on up to eight 16-core high-performance computing nodes and scalability studied in the Amazon AWS Cloud. You can download this case study HERE.
