In the present technological era, processing of program instructions is being done by dividing instructions among multiple processors with the objective of running a program in less time. To achieve more optimal results with the latter specified methodology, many techniques of High-performance computing are used for computing, parallel processing and running advanced application efficiently,
reliably and quickly. Various computing paradigms are being used in business application to attain top line growth and bottom line savings. To enlighten the faculty and students about this ingenious paradigm, the department of Computer Science and Applications, DAV College, Chandigarh organized a seminar on Recent trends in Computer Applications and need for High Performance Computing.
The resource person for the seminar was Dr. Sandeep Kumar, an eminent researcher and academician from IIT Roorkie. Dr. Kumar described role of Big Data, Cloud Computing and Parallel Computing as the practice of aggregating computing power in a way that delivers much higher performance than one could get out of a typical desktop computer or workstation in order to solve large problems in science, engineering, or business. Dr. Kumar explained the design framework and working various computing systems and also elaborated as to how these systems can improve the efficiency. Dr. Kumar concluded the seminar by throwing light on various tools that can be exploited to achieve computing requirements and maximizing the efficiency of applications including social network analysis and can be beneficial in futuristic endeavors. Approximately 100 Faculty and staff of Computer Department were benefitted to cement the research related concepts firmly in the area of computing. Principal Dr. B.C Josan thanked Dr. Sandeep Kumar and motivated faculty and staff to pursue research in the said areas that can help the society.
