GridBriefing 1 eLearning and grid computing - July 2010 GT-Brief March 2009
Computers and the Internet have transformed our homes and businesses, and have the potential to do the same for education and training. Known as eLearning, using such technologies can be as simple as accessing a school timetable online, through to running virtual communities for sharing and creating knowledge. This briefing looks at the issues surrounding the topic, and how grid technologies and Europe’s e-Infrastructures can play a part in this new way of learning.
GridBriefing 1 Future needs of the ESFRI projects - June 2010 GT-Brief March 2009
In April 2010 the European e-Infrastructure Forum released a report that examined the requirements of the ESFRI-projects and outlined the services and resources that the e-Infrastructure community can offer. This briefing summarises that report and the issues it raises.
GridBriefing 1 The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) - May 2010 GT-Brief March 2009
On 1 May 2010, EGI took over the coordination of European grid infrastructure. Through the previous DataGrid and Enabling Grids for E-SciencE (EGEE) projects, researchers across the globe reaped the benefits of grid technologies. Now, the organisation established to coordinate EGI, hopes to continue this trend. A discussion of the opportunities and challenges EGI faces on the road to a sustainable future.
GridBriefing 1 The data-centric age - April 2010 GT-Brief March 2009
It is estimated that more scientific data will be generated in the next five years than in the history of mankind. But while more data provides opportunities for new discoveries and fields of inquiry it has created problems with regards to storage, curation, access and analysis. This GridBriefing provides a snapshot of the most pertinent topics resulting from the so-called data deluge.
GridBriefing 1 Digitising culture: Grids and eHumanities - December 2009 GT-Brief March 2009
The era of eHumanities has arrived. No longer consigned to manuscript, memory or museums, digitisation is transferring the humanities to our computers. “Our original sources are scattered in many ways: historical documents in archives and libraries, works of art in museums, archaeological finds in ancient sites, disappearing languages on the tongues of native speakers,” says Peter Doorn, director of the proposed humanities infrastructure, DARIAH.
GridBriefing 1 Transferring technology: Grids in Business - October 2009 GT-Brief March 2009
Grid technology is used in a number of differing areas - from biomedicine to geosciences. However grid technologies can also be used outside the academic arena - helping organisations to provide enhanced processing power, access distributed resources and form stronger collaborations. A look at how the technology and expertise created by the grid community can be used in the commercial world.
GridBriefing 1 The future of Healthcare - eHealth and Grid Computing - September 2009 GT-Brief March 2009
From a patient’s heart monitor to electronic health records, ICT has integrated itself into all aspects of healthcare with grid computing playing a key role. A closer look at how eHealth and grids are shaping the future of healthcare.
