Helping policy-makers understand scenarios and interventions to prevent COVID-19 spread

"Beyond the tangible performance improvements, NeSI have helped us improve our workflow and tooling, and have been an amazing source of feedback for large-scale scientific software development and deployment. "

Next-gen geothermal modelling for a cheap green energy future

“Use of NeSI was central to our software development. We don’t know how big models will get in the future, so we wanted to make this as scalable as possible."

"Our goal is to create a piece of software that is capable of automatically analysing hundreds of thousands of pupil-tracked coordinates. This would allow a clinician to interpret the results and guide clinical decision making in real-world practice."

Modelling wind for Fiji’s green future

"We needed high-performance computing to run model simulations for a decade-long at this resolution, so NeSI has been vital in that respect."

Improving research approaches to predicting sea level rise

"The number of tests that were conducted in this Consultancy would not be possible to run by me in such a short time period."

Deep learning in land care research

"We're looking at how we can further automate those processes to make them more efficient so they can be run more frequently, for example to keep up with the rate that satellite imagery is now being produced."

Tech Insights: Testing the A100 tensor cores on deep learning code

Testing real user code, instead of benchmarks, gave us the opportunity to learn more about the experience we can expect for our users.
