An insight in to Ireland’s the Irish Centre for High-End Computing

Thursday 14th September, 2017

Postgraduate student Jamie Quinn was in Dublin during July and August to work on a high performance computing project at Ireland's supercomputing centre ICHEC. As part of it all Jamie wrote a few blog posts and made a video. Jamie said:

"During this summer I managed to grab a short research project at the national supercomputing centre for Ireland, ICHEC, in Dublin. While researching the use of radiosity, a measure of light emitted from a surface, in photo-realistic computer graphics, I met some wonderful people, experienced a whole new city (although very similar to Glasgow in every aspect bar price and quality of Guinness!) and even got around to creating a short visualisation explaining my research.
