Intel Labs on Graph 500 Ranking

Intel Labs placed #6 on the Graph500 ranking, a semi-annual listing of the highest performance machines for emerging "big data" supercomputing applications. In computer science, "graphs" are a way to represent and explore the connections between things, such as all the stops in a subway system, all the links in a large computer network, or all the relationships between people on social networks like Facebook. Graph computing is also used to discover meaningful correlations between events for applications such as medical informatics and cyber security.
