UMIT Research Lab
UMIT Research Lab is an environment for fundamental research in computational science and engineering. Innovative software tools for simulation and high-performance computing are developed and tested in collaboration with industry partners.
The development of hardware architectures with a multidue of cores, parallel computing, visualization and elastic IT infrastructure is rapid. This brings new possibilities for technical and scientific computing, new software tools and services for handling large amount of data rapidly. UMIT Research Lab focuses on developing new solutions in knowledge in simulation technology that unleashes the new computing powers.
New technologies and tools to manage supercomputer systems more efficiently meet the research's ever increasing need to handle large amounts of data and make advanced simulations. Gonzalo Rodrigo defends his doctoral thesis "HPC Scheduling in a Brave New World" on April 21st.
Erik Elmroth and Per-Olov Östberg will lead the Umeå University research in two EU Horizon 2020 projects targeting the next generation distributed infrastructure for cloud computing for processing big data.
The cab factory in Umeå will soon have a virtual twin: a digital replica of a process line. With this, changes, and new products can be tested without disrupting the production.
Elastisys autoscaling engine is released on Canonical’s Juju platform for Ubuntu. The company has
also secured venture capital, recruited a new CEO and been listed as one of the 33 hottest tech startup in Sweden 2017.
The Kempe Foundations have granted two years of funding for eight postdoctoral researchers in autonomous systems in a major investment at Umeå University. Autonomous systems consist of software and infrastructure that together with humans provide increased functionality, sustainability, and efficien...
