Using The Cray Supercomputer to Make Ice Cream More Delicious

If the next time you eat an ice cream you notice that it's yummier, you have a computer to thank. A supercomputer, actually.

The processing power available inside modern supercomputers isn’t just able to help us better understand the universe we live in, develop better medicines, and model complex systems. Apparently it is also helping to make better ice cream.

Research has been carried out at the University of Edinburgh to simulate the soft matter that makes up ice cream. More specifically, scientists are trying to understand the complex interactions occurring between the many different ingredients that make up your favorite flavor of the delicious cold stuff.
