Georgia Tech’s College of Computing announced this week that it is launching a new institute to serve as the center of gravity for the universities large scale computing research
“As we look to high performance computing to drive advanced breakthroughs in science, health, energy and other industries, leveraging Georgia Tech’s strongest assets – world class researchers in computing, experts across nearly every problem domain, and low barriers to collaboration – is what will set us apart,” said Dr. Mark Allen, Senior Vice Provost for Research and Innovation at Georgia Tech. “The creation of the Institute for Data and High Performance Computing provides the organizational foundation to harness our strategic capabilities and attack the most challenging problems that face society today.”
…The institute’s interim director will be Dr. Richard Fujimoto, Regents’ Professor and head of Computational Science & Engineering in the College of Computing. One important objective for Dr. Fujimoto will be to focus on developing new innovations in computational methods into useable tools and software to advance research in the application domain. Creating computational artifacts that provide value to application researchers and can be exported beyond the Tech campus provides a critical avenue to maximize the impact of Georgia Tech research innovations.
