    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.

      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/

            “How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think, and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers.” ― Isaac Asimov, Roving Mind Simulation by: Hammad Mazhar Rendered with PRMan by: Aaron Bartholomew

                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.

                    Over the past decade, the SCI Institute has established itself as an internationally recognized leader in visualization, scientific computing, and image analysis applied to a broad range of application domains. The overarching research objective is to conduct application-driven research in the creation of new scientific computing techniques, tools, and systems. An important application focus of the Institute continues to be biomedicine, however, SCI Institute researchers also address challenging computational problems in a variety of application domains such as manufacturing, defense, and energy. SCI Institute research interests generally fall into the areas of: scientific visualization, scientific computing and numerics, image processing and analysis, and scientific software environments. SCI Institute researchers also apply many of the above computational techniques within their own particular scientific and engineering sub-specialties, such as fluid dynamics, biomechanics, electrophysiology, bioelectric fields, parallel computing, inverse problems, and neuroimaging.

                      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.
