Podcast: SC15 Keynote Speaker Alan Alda on How HPC Transforms

Alan Alda

“To model climate change is one of the great benefits we’re going to get from supercomputing. The trouble is, to really help the public understand all the benefits that they can get from supercomputing, it has to be communicated with clarity so that they get it and they get excited by it… (thus) I think we have to transform the scientists who are explaining this to the public before the public will allow them and participate with them in transforming their own lives with this amazing ability to model things on supercomputers.”
