The Origins of Hypernet and Galileo

Ivan Ravlich, ABD in Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford, bridges the divide between several scientific and technological disciplines (chemical engineering, materials science, aerospace engineering, theoretical physics).  While preparing to run large scale simulations on extended theories of gravity for his doctoral research, he realized that the bottleneck of innovation in nearly every scientific field is the lack of access to…

Introducing: Galileo, the Portal to Hypernet

After much anticipation, the Hypernet team is today launching Galileo, the universal solution for distributed computing. Galileo is the portal to Hypernet, through which the world’s computing power will be accessed. The Galileo app advances the Hypernet mission of democratizing the means of discovery and technological progress, as Kyle Wiggers so clearly explains in this piece for VentureBeat. It is a revolutionary…

Testing the Limits: Optimal Hardware Setup for HEC-RAS

As the water resources community moves towards more widespread use of 2D and more complex modeling, access to optimal hardware becomes increasingly important.  Partially inspired by a study carried out by the Army Corps of Engineers, the Galileo team decided to launch its own investigation to find the fastest setup for compute-intensive 2D HEC-RAS runs, especially focusing on the number…
