Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are currently investigating new ways to use short pulses of electromagnetic waves to detect and treat early stage breast cancer. The researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison realized a need for a much more accelerated system for performing computations that involved extremely sophisticated computations. They turned to Acceleware for help in overcoming the obstacles that were impeding their research. As we are aware of the fact that the survival rate of this disease is directly affected by the earliest detection possible, it becomes clear how important this type of research is, and the need for speedier computations. read more on this at, http://www.nvidia.com/object/acceleware_university_wisconsin_madison.html.
Seismic data acceleration softwareAcceleware
Acceleware has launched its seismic data acceleration software that reduces processing times and delivers faster results when the oil and gas industry are making drilling decisions.
The software harnesses the parallel processing capabilities of GPU accelerators to increase the efficiency of data centres and reduce total cost of IT ownership. This technique is designed for 2D and 3D land and marine data where a typical processing job can compute from several days to months and solves a major bottleneck in the seismic processing industry today.
Migration is the most common seismic data processing method used to recover subsurface images of the Earth’s interior using surface-recorded data volumes obtained from seismic reflection surveys.
By accelerating the computations involved in seismic migration, the software can achieve denser packaging and improved economics in power and cooling.
The software has already been installed and field tested with a number of commercial data processing vendors on a variety of land and marine surveys.http://www.acceleware.com/oil-gas
These are just a sampling of what Acceleware is doing to progress their company as they strive to grow from the benefits of their recent restructuring. Given the value of their proprietary technology along with the present management team it is not hard to see the potential going forward from here. For those interested in knowing more on Acceleware (TSXV:AXE) (OTCBB:ACWRF) I would urge you to go to the company website at www.acceleware.com. Everyone should do their own due diligence.
