Data Analytics & Visualization

Data Analytics & Visualization

The MPCDF provides end-to-end solutions on HPC systems for high performance data-analytics and visualization projects for Max Planck scientists. This ranges from the integration of the infrastructure (such as Jupyter notebooks, remote visualization services, support of Apache Spark, ...) into the HPC system, the provisioning of  HPC optimized software (like various frameworks for deep learning and AI), as well as dedicated high-level project support in close collaboration with MPG research groups. Project support comprises of the consulting on state of the art techniques, of the development and optimization of data analytics (especially deep learning and AI) solutions, and of the creation of high quality scientific visualizations.
