“Temperature, noise, and precision all play a profound role in how well quantum processors solve problems. Beyond scaling up the technology by doubling the number of qubits, we also achieved key technology advances prioritized around their impact on performance.”

Video: Mont-Blanc Prototype One Step Closer to Exascale

“Early in February, Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) successfully deployed the Mont-Blanc prototype. After three years of intensive research effort, the team installed a two-rack prototype which is now available to the Mont-Blanc consortium partners. This has been a formidable challenge as this is the first time that a large HPC system based on mobile embedded technology has been deployed and made fully operational to a scientific community composed of scientists of six of the most important research centers in Europe.”

Podcast: Geoffrey Hinton on the Rise of Deep Learning

“In Deep Learning what we do is try to minimize the amount of hand engineering and get the neural nets to learn, more or less, everything. Instead of programing computers to do particular tasks, you program the computer to know how to learn. And then you can give it any old task, and the more data and the more computation you provide, the better it will get.”

HP Labs Reveals Progress on The Machine

“This radical new approach will fuse memory and storage, flatten data hierarchies, bring processing closer to data, embed security throughout the hardware and software stacks and enable management of the system at scale. Learn more by joining a panel of senior HP Labs researchers working on The Machine as they offer a closer look at what it takes to make it happen.”

Photonics Moves Forward for Future Computing Technology

The development of photonic technologies to speed up computing has taken two steps forward, following recent announcements demonstrating the use of photonics in both processing and data transfer.

Two More Steps Towards Quantum Computing

Correlated syndrome single-shot histograms and quantum state tomography of code qubits.

Quantum computing has taken a step closer with two recent announcements demonstrating methods for error correction in addition to a new scalable design for quantum circuits based on a lattice structure.

Podcast: Cray’s Steve Scott on Programming for the Next Decade

Steve Scott

“Our computing systems continue to evolve, providing significant challenges to the programming teams managing large, long-lived projects. Issues include rapidly increasing on-node parallelism, varying forms of heterogeneity, deepening memory hierarchies, growing concerns around resiliency and silent data corruption, and worsening storage bottlenecks.”

Alternatives to x86: Future Processing Technologies

Robert Roe

In the second article in his series on future hardware for HPC, Robert Roe from Scientific Computing World looks at alternatives to the x86, including server on a chip and OpenPower.

ANSYS Powers Quantum Computing Engineering at D-Wave

ansys

D-Wave Systems reports that the company is designing and building the world’s most advanced quantum computers with help from engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS. This next generation of supercomputers uses quantum mechanics to massively accelerate computation and has the potential to solve some of the most complex computing problems facing organizations today.
