The Kelvin-2 High Performance Computing centre is a £5M collaborative computing resource launched in 2020 between the Queen's University Belfast and Ulster University. The platform offers 8000 AMD-based CPU cores and 32 GPU nodes with a high performance 2 Petabyte of scratch storage interconnected via a high-speed network.
Researcher Dr Daniel Kelly from the SENDoc team was one of the first Ulster staff members to get to try the new resource. Daniel has utilised the cluster to start building computational models for prospective fall prediction based on the Healthy Ageing Initiative dataset collected by SENDoc partner Prof. Anna Nordström in Umeå, Sweden. We are very excited about this cutting edge collaborative SENDoc research and look forward to seeing the results.
