NSCC ASPIRE ISSUE #2 – NSCC Visit by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, Chairman NRF

Together with Minister Heng Swee Keat and colleagues from National Research Foundation (NRF), DPM Teo Chee Hean spent an afternoon at NSCC to understand more about the capability of ASPIRE 1 as well as impacts it has on a multitude of industries and research disciplines, spanning from next generation container ships, simulations of earthquakes impact to genome sequencing for 10,000 Singaporeans.

The projects that were showcased during the visit:

High-Efficiency Liquid Cooling and Vortex Flow for Thermal Management of Next Generation Data Centres in the Tropics

Designing the next generation green data centre – this small motor in the middle can help liquid coolants move around the circuit board and reduce overheating.

NUS: National Electron Microscopy imaging from NTU NISB and NUS CBIS

The Singapore National Electron Microscopy Network uses supercomputing to look at atomic-level interactions to analyse the interactions between synthetic drugs and the human body at a cellular level, and look at nanometer-scale structures for 3D electronics.

CSIRO-ARTC-NAMIC – Secure Distributed Factories of the Future

Enabling factories of the future – With supercomputing, you can send large data or design files overseas and print them in 3D.

A*STAR: Population Genomics – The SG10K Project

The SG10K project aims to sequence the genome of 10,000 Singaporeans and process the insights to enhance healthcare.

NTU: Earth Observatory of Singapore

Earth Observatory of Singapore uses ASPIRE 1 to run large-scale earthquake simulations to understand the impact of earthquakes, which the authorities in our region can use to plan for emergencies and save lives.

Keppel: Innovating towards Design Digitalisation featuring HPC modelling

Keppel Offshore & Marine Technology Centre uses supercomputing to model and build new container vessels.

Liquid Cooling Technologies for Greener Data Centres

Combining the most advanced research, technologies and innovations from Singapore and Europe, NUS, IMDA, NSCC and EKWB/MINT are partnering to develop a range of next generation cooling solutions that enable a new level of high energy efficiency and high-density compute power integration for future green data centres. The team is working on high efficiency warm and chilled liquid cooling with novel material combinations and fin structures which result in a highly efficient green data centre.
