Cleaning up Lake Erie with Compute: Econometric Modeling + Galileo = Smart Policy

From massive wildfires to melting icebergs, news of the harmful impact of climate change is all around us. Many of the researchers who use Galileo—in the fields of alternative energy or flood modeling, for example—are crafting engineering solutions to these complex problems through careful modelling and computationally intensive simulations.  But social scientists will be quick to explain that predicting the…

From Simulations to a Decarbonized Power Grid: Antora Energy + Galileo

Science and technology startups commonly face a chicken-and-egg problem that is not often discussed. Because brand new technology can be capital- and equipment-intensive to develop, it can be difficult or impossible to create and test a real-world proof of concept without first raising large sums of money. But how can start-up founders raise the capital they need without first demonstrating…

Launch Your First HEC-RAS / Simulation Project on Galileo Software

Check out Product Manager John Drexler explaining how easy it is to launch your first HEC-RAS project–or other simulation or data analysis work–using Galileo software.  As John says, the app allows you to take any project folder on your computer and run it remotely.  Galileo works with HEC-RAS projects as well as python, R, Octave/Matlab, Julia, and more.  A few…

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…
