Spotlight: Exploring the power of distributed intelligence for resilient scientific workflows
New project led by USC Information Sciences Institute seeks to ensure resilience in workflow management systems
Future computational workflows will span distributed research infrastructures that include multiple instruments, resources, and facilities to support and accelerate scientific discovery. However, the diversity and distributed nature of these resources makes harnessing their full potential difficult. To address this challenge, a team of researchers from the University of Southern California (USC), the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) at the University of North Carolina, and Oak Ridge, Lawrence Berkeley and Argonne National Laboratories have received a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop the fundamentals of a computational platform that is fault tolerant, robust to various environmental conditions and adaptive to workloads and resource availability.
