    This introduction to the basis of bioinformatics (for UNCW's ACM on 4/8/10) highlights the informational aspects of life that are usually overlooked or ignored in chemical and biological evolutionary scenarios. Each cell of an organism has millions of interacting computers reading and processing digital information using algorithmic digital programs and digital codes to communicate and translate information. Life is an intersection of natural science and information science (speaker has Ph.D.s in each field) and both domains are critical for any life to exist.

      • Coordination Models From Parallel Computing To Self-Organising Systems - Andrea Omicini

        Starting from the pioneering work on Linda and Gamma, coordination models and languages have gone through an amazing evolution process over the years. From closed to open systems, from parallel computing to multi-agent systems and from database integration to knowledge-intensive environments, coordination abstractions and technologies have gained in relevance and power in those scenarios where complexity has become a key factor. In this lecture, we outline and motivate 25 years of evolution of coordination models and discuss their potential perspectives in the future of artificial systems.

          • IPython Parallel - Brian Granger

            Working with data at large scales requires parallel computing to access large amounts of RAM and CPU cycles. Users need a quick and easy way to leverage these resources without becoming an expert in parallel computing. IPython has parallel computing support that addresses this need by providing a high level parallel API that covers a wide range of usage cases with excellent performance. This API enables Python functions, along with their arguments to be scheduled and called on parallel computing resources using a number of different scheduling algorithms. Programs written using IPython Parallel scale across multicore CPUs, cluster and supercomputers with no modification and can be run, shared and monitored in a web browser using the IPython Notebook. In this talk I will cover the basics of this API and give examples of how it can be used to parallelize your own code. This talk was presented at PyData NYC 2012: http://nyc2012.pydata.org/. If you are interested in this topic, be sure to check out PyData Silicon Valley in March of 2013: http://sv2013.pydata.org/

                Parallel computing in all devices is already here, and it's time to dive in. This talk will be an on-ramp to getting involved. Of all the spicy ingredients you can add to your code, OpenCL is the insanity pepper. Beyond GPGPU computing. Come see a clear tour of what's going on, easy example code to start experimenting with it from Python and Objective-C, with several demos and benchmarks. Comparisons will be given against serial code, GCD, GLSL and Accelerate.

                  This another test of my delta mush deformer, as i mentioned before, CUDA function would be implemented, I haven't finished yet, since dealing with data converting between maya API and CUDA C is not just a paper work, but the current progress makes me very exciting, so i decide to make this video to demonstrate the potential of GPU computing in rigging workflow.
