HPC’s Future Lies in Remote Visualization

Tom Wilkie, Scientific Computing World

Remote visualization is at the intersection of cloud, big data, and high performance computing. And the ability to look at complex data sets using only a mobile phone’s data rate is not some fantasy of the future. It is reality here and now.

Podcast: Coding Illini Wins Parallel Universe Computing Challenge

Coding Illini

In this Chip Chat podcast, Mike Bernhardt, the Community Evangelist for HPC and Technical Computing at Intel, discusses the importance of code modernization as we move into multi- and many-core systems. Markets as diverse as oil and gas, financial services, and health and life sciences can see a dramatic performance improvement in their code through parallelization.

Interview: Advancing Computational Chemistry with NWChem

Karol Kowalski, Capability Lead for NWChem Development at PNNL

“The notion of High Performance Computing is evolving over time. So what was deemed a leadership class computer five years ago is a little bit obsolete. We are talking about the evolution not only in the hardware but also in the programming models because there are more and more cores available. Orchestrating the calculations in the way that can effectively take advantage of parallelism takes a lot of thinking and a lot of redesign of the algorithms behind the calculations.”
