" Professors in the math and computer science departments have developed a new memory technology system that Pixar Animation Studios utilized during the production of their upcoming film "Cars," which is scheduled to debut on June 9. The team, led by computer science professor Steven Zucker and mathematics professor Steven Orszag, is also currently working on the creation of a new data organization structure that will, for example, make Internet searches on google.com more successful."
"This will help solve problems in I/O bound computing, like data mining," he said. "Data mining is any sort of problem where you have to extract data from large data sets, like in bioinformatics, or with large computations in other areas like fluid mechanics and materials design. But these problems also arise throughout commerce and industry, so, for example, it can affect multimedia access and even movie making. The applications involve using this newfound capability of rapidly accessing very large data sets to address scientific problems that involve very large amounts of data.""
“Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.”BIOINFORMATICS IN THE 21st CENTURY
