Scaling the Universe: How Large GPU Clusters Aid Understanding of Galaxy Formation

For centuries, scientists have marveled at telescopic imagery, theorized about much of what they see and drawn conclusions from their observations. More recently, astronomers and astrophysicists are using the computing performance of GPUs and AI to glean more from that imagery than ever. A research team at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Princeton Read article >
