In this special feature from The Exascale Report, readers from the HPC community weigh in on what the new #1 supercomputer in China means to U.S. competitiveness and why the DOE needs a Battlefield Commander to take on the challenge of Exascale Computing.
Even if the new DOE leadership gives exascale the evangelism it needs, someone still needs to get OSTP on board. This nation needs OSTP to be a champion for exascale development. DOE needs a leader who is both willing and capable of building a strong support network, and that means getting OSTP and OMB on board, if we are to regain a global HPC leadership position. Every aspect of the U.S. economy depends on this.”
