The New York University Center for Urban Science and Progress will host the Advanced Computing for Competitiveness Forum on April 13. Sponsored by the U.S. Council on Competitiveness, the day-long event will look at why “To out-compete is to out-compute.”

The Council’s landmark Advanced Computing Roundtable (ACR) – formerly the High Performance Computing (HPC) Initiative – is the preeminent forum for experts in advanced computing to set a national agenda on how such technologies should be leveraged for U.S. comptitiveness. Advanced computing includes technologies such as high performance computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT). ACR members represent industrial and commercial advanced computing users, hardware and software vendors and directors of academic and national laboratory advanced computing centers.

Speakers include:

  • Deborah L. Wince-Smith, President & CEO, U.S. Council on Competitiveness
  • Steven E. Koonin, Director, Center for Urban Science and Progress; and Professor of Information, Operations & Management Sciences and the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University
  • Larry Patterson, Director, Advanced Computing Technologies, Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation
  • Dr. Mark R. Shephard, Director, Scientific Computation Research Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Advanced computing enables cutting-edge science, innovation and engineering. That is why the ACR asserts that to out-compete is to out-compute. Members confer with federal agency leaders and recommend strategies to maintain U.S. leadership in the development and deployment of HPC hardware and software applications. The ACR convenes regional dialogues and forges new partnerships, makes the case for sustained investment in frontier research and development and works to leverage that investment for economic competitiveness, innovation, national security and American preeminence in science and engineering.
