Cerfacs Enter the world of high performance ...

Invited communication to the BIDS'17 conference

12 December 2017

During an invited communication to the « Big Data from Space 2017 » conference, CERFACS presented the stakes and the perspectives of its strategic axis “Data Driven Modeling” from the point of view of the valorization of satellite data.

CERFACS has a long-established record of excellence in environmental and industrial Computational Fluid Dynamics for complex flow simulation on high-resolution grid enhanced by continuous developments in numerical models and in High Performance Computing. Data Assimilation of satellite data for ocean, atmospheric chemistry or hydraulics modeling is also one of its strong expertise domains. Uncertainty Quantification has become a developing field based on ensemble approaches and model-reduction objectives. Based on these expertise domains, a new challenge for CERFACS is to develop a Data Driven Modeling axis combining Data Science, Uncertainty Quantification and Data Assimilation.
