WE CAME, WE SAW, WE CERNED

We were thrilled to spend Friday morning with the folks at TEDxCERN via webcast, enjoying fascinating talks by CI director Ian Foster and several other amazing scientists and educators. Foster's talk focused on "The Discovery Cloud," the idea that many complex and time-consuming research tasks can be moved to cloud-based tools, freeing up scientists to accelerate the pace of discovery. We'll post the video when it's up, but for now, enjoy this great animation produced for the conference by TED-Ed explaining grid computing, cloud computing and big data.
