Research

The Parallel Computing Institute aims to build powerful and efficient infrastructure for computation-heavy applications, such as the ability to read MRI results in real-time, weather and disease prediction tools, individualized genomic analysis tools for targeted treatments, design tools for new nano-scale materials, ultra-realistic video gaming and videoconferencing, immersive reality and others.

Researchers from a variety of disciplines are collaborating to build new hardware and software that will enable more powerful and efficient computing for everything from multicore processors in commodity electronics to supercomputers with nearly a million processing elements. By approaching problems in a strategic, interdisciplinary way, PCI is developing solutions with greater impact.
