In movies, huge battle scenes no longer rely upon the expensive recruitment and coordination of thousands of extras. Instead, the epic clashes of armies in films such as The Lord of the Rings trilogy use a computational technique called agent-based modeling, or ABM. In ABM, thousands or even millions of individual "agents" are programmed to follow a set of simple rules, which creates complex, realistic behavior at large scales.

Press Release

For three years, the Beagle supercomputer has driven University of Chicago biology and medical research into new computational territories, fueling groundbreaking research in genomics, drug design, and personalized medicine. Now, with a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, UChicago’s high-performance computing resource for biomedical research is ready for an upgrade that will enable the next wave of pioneering discoveries.
