SET™ Interactive Game of Life (Real-Time Visualization, Steering and Control of a Simulation Parallelized with MPI)

This short movie is a demonstration of the interactive features of the Supercomputing Engine Technology™ framework, applied to Conway's classic "Game of Life", a life-like cellular automata. For illustrative purposes, 8 processors are running the Game of Life in parallel with linear domain decomposition, so that life migrates between neighboring processors (1 to 2, 2 to 3, etc.). All processors have all-to-all connections via MPI, yet are controlled by and viewed via a "Front End". Then the user adds life forms into the processor selected in green, ultimately affecting the overall simulation while it runs in parallel. Full screen viewing at 1080p is recommended. The first 20-45 seconds streaming in full screen viewing looks fuzzy due to the initial youtube streaming of the large file, but it then becomes sharp.
