The view from Andy Keane, General Manager, Tesla High Performance Computing Products at NVIDIA.
The world of high performance computing is about to change dramatically. This change isn’t so much about building bigger and better petaFLOPS and eventually exaFLOPS machines. It has more to do with the decisions we make as members of a global community entrusted with a technology that can transform how we live and work, and our relationship with the planet.
It’s not that building more powerful supercomputers is unimportant. We all look forward to the semi-annual TOP500 listings accompanied by the inevitable chest thumping and justifiable self-congratulations on the part the top ranking manufacturer, user, and country of origin.
