Argonne National Laboratory

Co-design Center for Online Data Analysis and Reduction at the Exascale (CODAR)

The mission of CODAR is to strengthen and optimize processes for data analysis and reduction for the exascale. Researchers in CODAR are developing innovative techniques, such as lossy compression and feature extraction, that reduce redundant information without losing important information.

The co-design center staff work closely with the other ECP focus areas -- hardware, software technology, and applications. The objective is to ensure an integrated exascale ecosystem that takes into consideration the myriad options and tradeoffs involved in enabling high-performance computing and data analytic applications at the exascale.
