In this video, Professor Brian Vinter from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen presents an Overview of Supercomputing.

“Computers are an invaluable tool for most scientific fields. It is used to process measurement data and make simulation models of e.g. the climate or the universe. Brian Vinter talks about what makes a computer a supercomputer, and why it is so hard to build and program supercomputers.”

The dynamic research at the Niels Bohr Institute spans Astronomy, Geophysics & Climate, Nanophysics, Particles Physics, Quantum Physics and Biophysics.

“We explore the smallest sub-atomic particles to stars and planets, gamma rays and distant galaxies in the universe. As Vinter tells his students, the end goal is to make supercomputing easier for scientists.”
