Text of High Performance Collaboration – The Jump to Light Speed

  1. 1. High Performance Collaboration The Jump to Light Speed " Invited Talk National Center for Supercomputing Applications University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign Urbana, IL May 4, 2006 Dr. Larry Smarr Director, California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology; Harry E. Gruber Professor,Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering Jacobs School of Engineering, UCSD
  2. 2. Abstract NCSA has been a leader in innovation of new modes of networked collaboration for over fifteen years.The vision painted in the 1989 Science by Satellite demonstration at Siggraph in which distance becomes eliminated is finally nearing reality.I will review highlights of NCSA's pioneering work and then describe some recent experiments that Calit2 has been involved in.With the emergence of dedicated 10 gigabit/s optical backplanes on a planetary scale, the notion of shared telepresence is becoming achievable.

    • Televisualization:
      • Telepresence
      • Remote Interactive Visual Supercomputing
      • Multi-disciplinary Scientific Visualization
    Long-Term Goal: Dedicated Fiber Optic InfrastructureUsing Analog Communications to Prototype the Digital Future Were using satellite technologyto demo what It might be like to have high-speedfiber-optic links between advancedcomputers in two different geographic locations. Al Gore, Senator Chair, US Senate Subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space Illinois Boston SIGGRAPH 1989 ATT &Sun What we really have to do is eliminate distance between individuals who want to interact with other people and with other computers.

  5. 5. The Move to a Single Software Platform Collaboration Tool Habanero TMwas written to facilitate the use of real-timemulti-user software tools in education and the sciences.Unlike earlier projects(such as NCSA Telnet, NCSA Collage, NCSA Mosaic),where different source code was usedfor each supported hardware platform,the Habanero framework supports multiple hardware platformsby virtue of implementation in the Java programming language from Sun Microsystems.
