yberheart Created by Russian Scientists with Supercomputer Lobachevsky
November 16, 2015 10:38

Supercomputer Lobachevsky has helped scientists of the Nizhny Novgorod State University to develop the software and hardware appliance Cyberheart financed with the grant of the Government of the Russian Federation.
"Our project on creating a 3D heart model became the winner of the state competition for a subsidy on hi-tech production. The project is planned to last for three years and will be supported with financing of 170 million rubles", - the university reported.
"We have made a computer model of the human heart, which is primarily required for tests and experiments. Such experiments are impermissible on a living person, and on the computer we can test and try anything and check how it all works", - the system developer Grigory Osipov reported.
For instance, the Cyberheart can test drugs, various methods of treatment, new instruments, etc. This computer model makes it possible to watch the dynamics of cardiac processes under the influence of these or those circumstances or drugs, and the way it will change over several years.
"The universal model invented by us can be tuned to a specific person and his or her heart. The basic data, such as tomography, for example, is introduced into the Cyberheart and is  analyzed afterwards, thus giving us a picture of a particular heart. Later, with a range of tests, we can select optimal treatment for this person", - Mr. Osipov explained.
Moreover, the Cyberheart will enable scientists to make a mobile electrocardiogram electrocardiogram with sending results via wireless network to the server needed.
"Such system can be used in medical laboratories. It will help select appropriate treatment for cardiovascular diseases, prevent sequelas and even save life of thousands of patients to pick up", - the director of Mathematics and Mechanics IT Institute at the NNSU Victor Gergel noted. He added that presently the Nizhny Novgorod State University is negotiating about introducing the software and hardware appliance Cyberheart to the medical institutions of Nizhny Novgorod.
Creating a virtual clone of the heart is a great challenge and an enormous calculating experiment, which could be carried out by means of the supercomputer Lobachevsky, which was brought into operation at the university in 2014. The peak productivity of the supercomputer is about 600 teraflop, while one teraflop makes one trillion operations per second - in other words, it can perform thousands times more of operations in a second than an ordinary personal computer. Lobachevsky is one of the three supercomputers operating at the universities of Russia and one of the hundred of the world's largest supercomputers. It is Russia's second most powerful computer, with the first one located in the Moscow State University.
