New HPC cluster installed at Clarkson University

18 Apr 2017 Kansas City - An Advanced Clustering team was on-site at Clarkson University to install a new cluster that the company built for Dr. Chen Liu, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Dr. Liu was awarded a three-year grant from the National Science Foundation to lead a four-person research team dedicated to acquiring a heterogeneous high-performance computing cluster.

"Our project is a small-scale super computer with a lot of horsepower for computation ability", Dr. Chen Liu stated. "It has many servers, interconnected to look like one big machine. Research involving facial recognition, iris recognition and fingerprint recognition requires a lot of computing power, so we're investigating how to perfect that capability and make biometrics run faster."

Dr. Chen Liu is the principal investigator. His colleagues Joseph Skufca, Professor and Chair of Mathematics, and Paynter-Krigman Endowed Professor in Engineering Science Stephanie Schuckers are co-PIs. Clarkson University Chief Information Officer Joshua Fiske rounds out the team.
