SC16 will continue its HPC Matters Plenary session series this year with a panel discussion on HPC and Precision Medicine. The event will take place at 5:30 pm on Monday, Nov 14 just prior to the exhibits opening gala. “The success of all of these research programs hinge on harnessing the power of HPC to analyze volumes of complex genomics and other biological datasets that simply can’t be processed by humans alone. The challenge for our community will be to develop the computing tools and services needed to transform how we think about disease and bring us closer to the precision medicine future.”
In this video from SC15, Intel’s Diane Bryant discusses how next-generation supercomputers are transforming HPC and presenting exciting opportunities to advance scientific research and discovery to deliver far-reaching impacts on society. As a frequent speaker on the future of technology, Bryant draws on her experience running Intel’s Data Center Group, which includes the HPC business segment, and products ranging from high-end co-processors for supercomputers to big data analytics solutions to high-density systems for the cloud.
In this video from SC14, Niall Gaffney from TACC shares his thoughts on why HPC matters. Gaffney is Director of Data Intensive Computing at the Texas Advanced Computing Center.
In this video William Edsall, HPC Lead Analyst at Dow Chemical, shares his thoughts on why HPC matters and why young people should aspire to careers in high performance computing.
In this video from SC14, SGI CTO Dr. Eng Lim Goh discusses why HPC Matters with Rich Brueckner from insideHPC. They then move on to the topic of Exascale and how SGI plans to get there.
“Why does high-performance computing matter? Because science matters! Discovery matters! Human beings are seekers, questers, questioners. And when we get answers, we ask bigger questions. HPC extends our reach, putting more knowledge, more discovery, and more innovation within our grasp. With HPC, the future is ours to create! #HPCMatters!”
