Radio Free HPC Looks at Federal Employee Hack

bubble

In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the recent hack of U.S. government employee data. Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, including military records and veterans’ status information, address, birth date, job and pay history, health insurance, life insurance and pension information; and age, gender, and race data.

Will Europe be First to Exascale?

“The strengths and the limitations of Europe’s supercomputing strategy were laid out at the PRACEDdays15 conference in Dublin at the end of May, with the minds of many delegates concentrated by the announcement in the USA over the course of the past few months of the $425 million ‘Coral’ procurement, intended to develop supercomputers that will leapfrog the international competition and open up the way to an Exascale machine.”

“Over the three decades supercomputer throughput rates have increased dramatically from 100s of MFLOPs in 1985 to tens of PFLOPS today, making U.S. universities pre-eminent in the world in computational S&E, which is a tribute to both NSF and Centers’ dedication and leadership. Looking ahead to the impacts of synaptic computing, high-performance computing coupled with data analysis, and cloud computing coupled with the Internet of Things (IOT), the challenges and opportunities in computational S&E in all sectors of U.S. Society is projected to advance dramatically.”

Why Hardware is Leaving Software Behind
