Recently, Argonne has been in the news with “Mira,” the anticipated 10-petaFLOPS IBM Blue Gene/Q supercomputer expected to go online in 2012. To get a better understanding of what Mira is all about, and what it means for exascale computing, we interviewed Mike Papka, the Deputy Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment, and Life Sciences at Argonne National Laboratory, Acting Division Director of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility, and Senior Fellow in the Argonne National Laboratory / University of Chicago Computation Institute.
