In this video from the NCSA Blue Waters Symposium, Arden Bement from Purdue University presents: From Megaflop to Petaflop and Beyond.

Over the three decades supercomputer throughput rates have increased dramatically from 100s of MFLOPs in 1985 to tens of PFLOPS today, making U.S. universities pre-eminent in the world in computational S&E, which is a tribute to both NSF and Centers’ dedication and leadership. Looking ahead to the impacts of synaptic computing, high-performance computing coupled with data analysis, and cloud computing coupled with the Internet of Things (IOT), the challenges and opportunities in computational S&E in all sectors of U.S. Society is projected to advance dramatically.
