  • As part of the Data Science Innovation Summit on Feb. 12-13, 2015 in San Diego, Kerstin Kleese van Dam, ACMD Division’s Data Services Team Lead, will present a keynote, “How to Use Streaming Data for Real-time Decision Making.” The summit will feature thought leaders from industry, academia, and government, tackling topics related to advancing the role of data science in their respective fields. Kerstin also attended last month’s 2015 Federal Big Data Strategic Initiative Workshop, helping federal agencies prioritize their respective Big Data research initiatives.

About the Division

PNNL’s ACMD Division focuses on the Science of Computing and creating new computational capabilities to solve problems using extreme-scale simulation and data analytics.

The Advanced Computing, Mathematics & Data (ACMD) Division at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory provides science, technologies, and leadership to solve significant problems of national interest in energy, environment, national security, and fundamental science. Within the ACMD Division, our research is aimed at creating new, state-of-the-art computational capabilities using extreme-scale simulation and petascale data analytics that enable scientific breakthroughs.

We are developing intelligent hardware and software solutions that analyze, store, and share data in ways that enable innovative research, while reducing both cost and time. These research and development activities are giving rise to scientific breakthroughs in high-impact areas, including infrastructures, computing architectures, and advanced analytical techniques.

In addition, ACMD Division offers investigator-initiated and multi-institutional collaborative research, unique scientific instrumentation, and national program leadership to translate the latest discoveries into technologies for the scientific community.

To address a constantly shifting set of opportunities as new areas of inquiry become technically feasible for the first time, ACMDD is cultivating research capabilities in:
