Computation and Data

This initiative includes computational research from quantum scale to commercial manufacturing scale, and permeates all disciplines. The power of high-performance computing combined with the enormous value of available data provides both an opportunity and challenge to produce new and trustworthy insight. Multiple disciplines must come together to assure that both questions and answers are correct.

Featured Computation and Data Research

Older Adult Brain Atlas

A collaborative Illinois Tech/Rush University team is building MIITRA, a first-of-its-kind atlas that aims to help in the identification and diagnosis of disease.


Big Data Researchers Kougkas and Sun

Distinguished Professor of Computer Science Xian-He Sun and Research Assistant Professor of Computer Science Anthony Kougkas are collaborating with a UChicago researcher to develop the ChronoLog data storage system. 


Sonia Petrovic, SoReMo Initiative

Four students have been selected as inaugural fellows in the SoReMo Initiative, which computation and data science faculty have established to help effect positive societal change.   

Hermes for Supercomputing

Computer science faculty members Anthony Kougkas and Xian-He Sun along with collaborators from the HDF Group have launched Hermes, a new software system designed to reduce storage to memory data traffic jams in high-performance computing.
