Ian Gorton Provides Leadership for Special Edition of Computer Magazine
Congratulations to Ian Gorton, CSMD associate division director of Applied Computer Science, who led the development of a special edition of Computer magazine on Data Intensive Computing. Computer is the flagship magazine of the IEEE Computer Society. Ian, who is the chief architect for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Data Intensive Computing Initiative, proposed and worked with colleagues Paul Greenfield, CSIRO; Alex Szalay, Johns Hopkins University; and Roy Williams, Caltech, to solicit papers and referee the submissions. Ian's editorial introduces the topic of data intensive computing, and maps out research challenges for the community to address so that ever larger data collections can be handled in a scalable fashion. The deluge of data that future applications must process—in domains ranging from science to business informatics—creates a compelling argument for substantially increased R&D targeted at discovering scalable hardware and software solutions for data-intensive problems," Ian says.
