    pesticides, thus improving efficiency and crop yields. This undertaking would have been unthinkable a decade ago. But a new advance - parallel computing - has plowed through the computational challenges to make it a reality. University of Michigan professor Quentin Stout defines parallel computing as the use of multiple computer processors in combination to solve a single problem. The idea is simple on face: break up the task into small chunks which can be solved individually and then combined to produce a larger solution. Parallelism means addressing each chunk simultaneously rather than one at a time - which is much faster than a sequential approach. Parallel computing has the ability to reshape every aspect of our lives,…

    Due to this, the study of new strategies of parallelization, designed to a especific architecture or to a combination of architectures, has become the focus of efforts to accelerate the simulation of particle methods. The GPU was initially designed to accelerate graphics processing, nevertheless, from the mid-2000s, it becomes a more generalized computing device that promises accelerate codes that demand high computational power at lower cost. Despite the known challenges to speedup linear…

    Blown to Bits Chapter 4 was all about the organization of bits, and how the internet is organized. After all, there is simply so much data on the internet, one must wonder exactly how search engines such as Google can pull up websites from this virtual sea of chaos. Well, at first, the internet was mainly a repository for information. Websites were browsed in a hierarchical order, with the websites of most precedence appearing before those with less prominence, which makes a lot of sense if you…

    of programs which is being implemented using the MapReduce library. One of the significant issue which was solved using the library was the ranking algorithm for the Google search engine by indexing the pages. Programs written in this functional style are automatically parallelized and executed on a large cluster of commodity machines. The run-time system takes care of the details of partitioning the input data, scheduling the program’s execution across a set of machines, handling machine…

    company was a hardware firewall provider. Upon my investigations, I came to the understanding that their parallelization was not effective at all. In a standard test of their performance, before I provide my algorithm, they could process six million packets per second throughput; But, it was just normal packet filter with barely even header inspection, also refreshing the new rules took approximately three minutes and forty-five seconds, that was their time to generate new rules. The task of…

    I used the parallel format to restate and summarize these same points in the conclusion. For example, I started my speech asking how many people had heard of the quote and ended the presentation by bringing that same idea back into the conclusion. I also made sure to restate the ideas in my thesis and my specific speech purpose from the introduction in the conclusion. Throughout the entire speech, I made sure to explain to the audience what I was about go talk about or go over, making my topic…

    the money? Mechanical switches are certified to last longer than rubber-dome switches pretty much across the board, regardless of the manufacturer and easy maintenance. For example, Foxboro Test lab offers both mechanical-switch keyboards and rubber-dome keyboards are both testes for up to 50 million key presses, while its rubber-dome shift is good for only 15 million and that’s with high durability switches that last longer than the typical 1 to 5 million presses for most rubber-dome keyboards.…
