Grid computing shows promise

Three grid computing experts at Binghamton University say they now have the hardware and resources to solve a huge array of computationally demanding problems. They hope to form new collaborations across campus even as some earlier projects begin to bear fruit. Associate Professor Michael Lewis and Assistant Professors Kenneth Chiu and Madhu Govindaraju, who form the “grid group” in the Computer Science Department, are helping researchers in bioengineering, physics and other fields take on questions that might never be answered without massively powerful computers.
“We’re not going to cure cancer, but we’re going to help somebody cure cancer,” Chiu said. Full Story
