The Council on Competitiveness is hosting a briefing on Extreme Computing on July 10 in Washington, D.C.
A strong research and development community composed of collaborations between industry, national laboratories, and academia use high-performance computing to support national security, stimulate innovation, and provide solutions to the most challenging problems that our nation faces. Exascale, or more colloquially stated, extreme computing, will enable transformational and innovative advances in scientific discovery, predictive understanding of complex systems, and large-scale data management and analytics, to meet the nation’s needs in economic and national security; sustainable energy, environment, and climate; and increasingly in the industrial and commercial sectors.
