CEA-Leti: Neuromorphic Device Uses Up to ‘5 Orders of Magnitude’ Less Energy

GRENOBLE, France – July 7, 2022 – Technical research institute CEA-Leti announced it has developed an event-driven, object-localization system that couples piezoelectric, ultrasound transducer sensors to a neuromorphic, resistive memories-based computational map. Presented in a paper published recently in Nature Communications, the research team describes development of an auditory-processing system that increases energy efficiency by up […]

@HPCpodcast: Horst Simon on DOE’s Post-Exascale HPC Vision – More Flexibility, More Vendor Diversity; the Start of a New Leadership-class Supercomputing Market?

Following DOE’s next-gen supercomputing Request for Information (RFI) issued last week, we discussed what it all may mean with Dr. Horst Simon, Special Advisor to the Laboratory Director at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and co-editor of the TOP500 list since 2000. He takes us through the current (though fungible) state of DOE’s post-exascale vision, the implications of an Advanced Computing Ecosystem (ACE) outlined in the RFI and the possible emergence of a new, more vendor-diverse leadership-class systems market.

DOE Document Reveals Next-Gen Supercomputing Strategy: A Move to More Modular, Faster Upgrade Cycles

Less than a month after its Frontier system broke the exascale performance barrier and won the no. 1 supercomputing world ranking, the U.S. Department of Energy today issued an RFI revealing its strategic thinking for the next generation of leadership-class supercomputers extending out to 2030. The documentis calls for “the development of an approach that […]

@HPCpodcast: Satoshi Matsuoka on the TOP500, Fugaku and Arm, Quantum and Winning Japan’s Purple Ribbon Medal of Honor

A leading figure in the HPC community, Prof. Satoshi Matsuoka, director of the RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS) and professor of computer science at Tokyo Institute of Technology, joined our @HPCpodcast for a far ranging discussion of supercomputing – past, present and future. At RIKEN, Matsuoka has overseen development of Fugaku, number 1 on the TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers (the list will be updated next week during the ISC 2022 conference in Hamburg — as of now it’s not known if Fugaku will retain its position). Previously, Matsuoka was lead developer of another well-know supercomputer, TSUBAMI, the most powerful supercomputer in Japan at the time.
