ICM Selects IBM to Fuel National Science 2011.05.15

Warsaw, Poland - May 11, 2011 - The Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling (ICM) of University of Warsaw announced today that it will be the first scientific center in Poland to use the IBM (NYSE: IBM) Blue Gene/P system. IBM Blue Gene/P supercomputer to enable further advances inmolecular biology, cosmology, neuroinformatics and material sciences.

Warsaw, Poland - May 11, 2011

The Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical and Computational Modeling (ICM) of University of Warsaw announced today that it will be the first scientific center in Poland to use the IBM (NYSE: IBM) Blue Gene/P system.

 
 
This supercomputer technology
will enable researchers to calculate a wide range of complex problems with advanced scalability and energy efficiency, ultimately enlarging the Center's computational operations.

 
 
Under the contract, IBM will also manage the integration and deliver maintenance services for ICM's supercomputer.

As part of the agreement, the supercomputer will be used in scientific research carried out under a national program called Calculation of the Great Challenges of Science and Technology or "POWIEW".

Dr. Paul M. Horn.
Under Dr. Paul M. Horn’s leadership as senior vice president and director, IBM Research produced an unmatched string of technological breakthroughs, including the chess-playing supercomputer Deep Blue, the world's first copper chip, the giant magneto-resistive head (GMR) and strained silicon - a discovery that allows chips to run up to 35 percent faster.
A solid state physicist by training, Horn also led IBM Research in the development of IBM Blue Gene. He challenged his team to come up with the next big thing that would make an impact the way Deep Blue had.
His team came up with a project to build the fastest computer in the world.
Then he brought together software and systems groups to create a distinctly cross-disciplinary project that would have a profound impact on IBM and the deep computing industry.

The system will take on computationally intensive scientific problems described as "major challenges" in areas such as meteorology, cosmology, materials sciences and neuroinformatics.

For example, IBM's Blue Gene/P system will be used to model electrical potentials in the brain, allowing researchers to verify several years' worth of posed hypotheses about the dynamics of sensory information processing.

It will also contribute to ICM's Virtual Science Library project, which makes available to all the academic centers in Poland a wide range of publications, doctoral dissertations, electronic information resources and scientific data.

The POWIEW project will also use ICM's supercomputer to support the development of new algorithms and computational methods for next generation supercomputer architectures that will be in use before 2020.

"Thanks to the enormous progress of computer technology, we can take on scientific challenges that were - not so long ago - far beyond the boundaries of imagination, such as understanding the nature of systems of extreme complexity, ranging from the atomic to the cosmological scale," said Professor Marek Niezgodka, ICM's Director.
"It all opens up exciting new opportunities and poses ambitious challenges for ICM teams and our colleagues. The ability to work with IBM -- the world leader in technology in this field -- inspires us, as does the creation of new solutions and the acquisition of new knowledge that the IBM supercomputer will enable."

"IBM's smarter systems are used in major worldwide research projects. ICM's selection of IBM supercomputing technology will enable the Center to significantly contribute to the development and success of Polish research projects," said Krzysztof Bulaszewski, Sales Management Advisor, IBM Poland.
"IBM is proud to cooperate with Polish scientific institutions."

The IBM Blue Gene/P is expected to facilitate a closer collaboration between ICM Polish scientists, IBM developers and the Forschungszentrum Julich in Germany, which installed a Blue Gene/P in 2007 - one of the fastest in the world.

Blue Gene is one of the 100 Icons of Progress in IBM's 100 year history because it is a radical departure from the supercomputers of its time, consuming only a fraction of the energy and floor space.

Blue Gene's speed and expandability have enabled industry and the scientific community to address a wide range of complex problems and make more informed decisions.
