PTI researchers introduce new tool to support faster execution of data mining applications implemented as MapReduce programs.
The mission of the Community Grids Lab (CGL) is to create the technology that will enable grid computing to help solve important scientific problems. In creating new global communities, grid computing will open the way to new possibilities for e-Business and e-Science. The Community Grids Lab (CGL) focuses on creating new technology infrastructure and applications that will enable distributed business enterprises and cyberinfrastructure for distributed science and engineering. Computers and networks are getting faster; the distinction between computers and the network is blurring. This points to a future where individuals and corporations interact with grid-based applications without needing to explicitly manage the underlying technology details. CGL's focus on applications has spawned much cross-disciplinary collaboration in research and development of scientific and business applications. A current major emphasis is in earth science and particle physics, with other projects in education, biocomplexity, chemistry, apparel design, digital film production, and sports informatics.
