Miron Livny, a University of Wisconsin-Madison computer science professor, is pictured near an enclosed bank of distributed computing equipment in the Computer Sciences and Statistics building on July 28, 2008. The facility includes 1,100 CPU cores and nearly 400 terabytes of disk space, all connected directly to the backbone of the campus network. Livny specializes in distributed computing, which pools the computing power of thousands of processors to conduct number crunching at a huge scale. Livny leads a national initiative, called the Open Science Grid, that uses this ability to collect and divide data from the particle detector project at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland.
