High Performance Computing  /  Data Science  /  Visualization

To increase the usage of advanced computing resources by the scientific, innovation and industry communities in Portugal, a new research and innovation agenda is being proposed, in close collaboration between Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) and the Portuguese and European advance computing community.

Specific actions and research on data science and visualization, should be carried out, together with a number of pilot projects to better access and exploit the use of advanced computing facilities for big data in a variety of domains, including cities, agriculture, fisheries, earth observation and security, health applications, among other application areas.
