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.”
