HBP chosen for the SC17 #HPCConnects videos

The Human Brain Project has been chosen as one of the projects to be featured at the world’s most important conference on High-Performance Computing (HPC).

The annual Supercomputing Conference series, attended by about 11,000 people, is being held in November in Denver, Colorado, USA under the theme #HPCConnects.

As part of the conference a handful of projects and communities are chosen to be featured in short videos, all illustrating the impact of HPC on their research fields. For SC17, the Human Brain Project (HBP) has been invited to be one of the projects presented.

HBP Scientific Director Katrin Amunts and the project’s HPC expert Dirk Pleiter were interviewed for the film, which you can view below.
