Creating computational simulations of mechanical devices

“[CCR]...is a facility that epitomizes how you want to be doing big science”
Alexander Cartright, UB VP for Research

To advance its ability to create computational simulations of mechanical devices, Sentient Science is drawing on the computational power of UB’s leading supercomputer facility, the Center for Computational Research (CCR) in UB’s New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences. CCR’s staff and resources are an important addition to Sentient’s existing computing resources, allowing the company to access the power of UB’s supercomputers and the expertise of its research staff. The CCR may soon host some of Sentient’s supercomputing clusters in its facility, marking a new milestone in CCR’s mission to help foster economic development in Western New York. UB faculty will be collaborating with Sentient scientists, as well, to develop innovations in the company’s use of sensors and simulations.
