If the U.S. is serious about having exascale-level computation available by the end of this decade, its current model of disjointed, incremental funding of multiple, small research projects is just not going to be sufficient.
From conferences to workshops, I’m sure many of you have heard this same response – and some of you may even be repeating this mantra:
“Will we reach exascale by 2018? Sure we can do it. We’re the U.S.A. We always rise to the challenge!”
