The New York University Center for Urban Science and Progress will host the Advanced Computing for Competitiveness Forum on April 13. Sponsored by the U.S. Council on Competitiveness, the day-long event will look at why “To out-compete is to out-compute.” The Council’s landmark Advanced Computing Roundtable (ACR) – formerly the High Performance Computing (HPC) Initiative – is the preeminent forum for experts in advanced computing to set a national agenda on how such technologies should be leveraged for U.S. comptitiveness. Advanced computing includes technologies such as high performance computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT). ACR members represent industrial and commercial advanced computing users, hardware and software vendors and directors of academic and national laboratory advanced computing centers.”
“Achieving the No. 1 ranking is significant for China’s economic and energy security, not to mention national security. With 125 petaFLOP/s (peak), China’s supercomputer is firmly on the path toward applying incredible modeling and simulation capabilities enabling them to spur innovations in the fields of clean energy, manufacturing, and yes, nuclear weapons and other military applications. The strong probability of China gaining advantages in these areas should be setting off loud alarms, but it is hard to see what the U.S. is going to do differently to respond.”
Today the Council on Competitiveness published a new report from the National Digital Engineering Manufacturing Consortium (NDEMC). Entitled “Modeling, Simulation and Analysis, and High Performance Computing: Force Multiplier for American Innovation,” the 88 age report explores how HPC transforms manufacturing.
“High performance computing (HPC) is inextricably linked to innovation, fueling breakthroughs in science, engineering, and business. HPC is viewed as a cost-effective tool for speeding up the R&D process, and two-thirds of all US-based companies that use HPC say that “increasing performance of computational models is a matter of competitive survival.”
“Solve builds on over a decade of Council leadership to ensure the United States acts strategically to leverage HPC for competitiveness,” said Deborah L. Wince-Smith, President & CEO of the Council on Competitiveness.
The SOLVE Report is here! The Council on Competitiveness, with support from the US Department of Energy, engaged Intersect360 Research to interview 100+ companies whose use of HPC increases their competitiveness in industries such as manufacturing, finance, pharmaceuticals, and chemical engineering. These findings were published in Solve, a publication exploring how U.S. investment in HPC benefits America’s industrial and economic competitiveness.
