Hewlett Packard Enterprise's (HPE) “The Machine" research program – one of the biggest research projects in the IT pioneer's history – aims at overcoming the limitations of today's computer architecture. As a result from this research, HPE launched the first prototype of a radically new computer architecture. The core of this computer architecture is no longer the processor – it is a large pool of memory.Biomedical Science and computer technology are increasingly coming together to solve critical health challenges. One such partnership between Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is applying cutting-edge technology to significantly accelerate research into neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's - a disease that affects more than 47 million people worldwide. By using advanced computing technology and new computational algorithms, HPE and DZNE have been able to significantly cut-down the time required for genome analysis. This will benefit not only real time analyses of human genomes for research on neurodgenerative diseases, but will improve overall personalised diagnostics.
