CITRIS is the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society. CITRIS creates information technology solutions for many of our most pressing social, environmental and healthcare problems."Petascale computing is coming of age, opening powerful new modeling opportunities for CITRIS applications. From the exploration of protein folding at the atomic level to long-range climate predictions and turbulence studies, the new computers will give a broad range of users processing power heretofore reserved for weapons research."
James Demmel, Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at UC Berkeley and founding Chief Scientist at CITRIS, is correct when he was quoted saying the following."The computer industry will hit a wall unless it figures out how to deal with large-scale parallelism."
