The Advanced Crytography Lab is a major asset to the research abilities of the group. Calculations that might take a single computer 12 to 15 years can be performed in less than a month.
This large-scale parallel computer was made possible by a grant from Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF) to Dr. Hugh Williams, a $642,000 grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation to Dr. Michael Jacobson, and a generous contribution from IBM Canada.
The Biometrics Technologies Laboratory (BT Lab) is a research facility that focuses on modeling and simulating biometrics. The BT Lab was created in 2003 with funding support from the Canadian Foundation for Innovations, as well as matching contributions from the Government of Alberta, and the University of Calgary's Faculty of Science, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Computer Science.
