Current Projects

The three universities, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, University of California, San Diego and the University of Utah are addressing the most challenging computational problems of national priority by applying the computer science inherent in the parallel processing algorithms that are required to optimize the performance and scalability of these computer resources for diverse industry applications.

The problems of national priority to be addressed by CHMPR are:

  • Big Data Analytics for Heath IT
  • Climate Change
  • Brain and Pluripotent Cell Imaging
  • Material Genomics
  • Mitigation of Natural and Human-caused Disasters
  • Future capabilities Beyond Watson
