Video: Exascale for Earth System Modeling of Storms, Droughts, Sea Level Rise

In this interview, award winning scientist Mark Taylor at Sandia National Laboratories’ Center for Computing Research talks about the use of exascale-class supercomputers – to be delivered to three U.S. Department of Energy national labs in 2021 – for large-scale weather and water resource forecasting. Taylor is chief computational scientist for the DOE’s Energy Exascale […]

Quantum: UChicago Researchers Show Qubits Retaining Information for Hours or Longer — ‘An Eternity’

Touting major potential implications for quantum computing, researchers at the University of Chicago have released a study in which they demonstrated control of “quantum memories of silicon carbide,” the ability to control individual quantum bits — qubits — that retain information for hours or possibly days, instead of fractions of a second. In a paper […]

Cambridge Quantum Computing with IBM Launches 1st Cloud-Based Quantum Random Number Generator

Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) has launched the world’s first cloud-based Quantum Random Number Generation (QRNG) Service with integrated verification for the user. Randomness is an essential and ubiquitous raw material in almost all digital interactions and is also used in cybersecurity to encrypt data and communications and perform simulation analysis across many sectors, including the […]

Quantum Computing: Inaugural €10,000 Hartree Centre & Atos Joseph Fourier Prize Launched

London, 16 September 2020 – Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, together with the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Hartree Centre this week launch a new UK and Ireland competition aimed at supporting innovative work in the field of quantum computing. In encouraging researchers, academics and industrial scientists to submit their own research project it is hoped […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: ORNL Distinguished Scientist Travis Humble on Coupling Classical and Quantum Computing

Oak Ridge National Lab’s Travis Humble has worked at the headwaters of quantum computing research for years. In this interview, he talks about his particular areas of interest, including integration of quantum computing with classical HPC systems.  “We’ve already recognized that we can accelerate solving scientific applications using quantum computers,” he says. “These demonstrations are just early examples of how we expect quantum computers can take us to the most challenging problems for scientific discovery.”

Combustion Pioneer Jacqueline Chen Named Department of Energy Fellow

Jacqueline Chen, whose work on fundamental turbulence-chemistry interactions in combustion helped advance the design of automotive, gas turbine and jet engines, was selected by the Department of Energy’s Office of Science as a distinguished scientist fellow — one of only eight researchers in the nation to hold the distinction. Chen, a senior scientist in the […]

Video: Former IBMer Dave Turek Explains DNA-based Storage and its Place in the Compute Landscape to Come

New compute architectures, with the potential to propel systems power forward even as Moore’s Law winds down, are emerging — a phenomenon sometimes referred to as “technology disaggregation.” Hence the explosive growth of accelerated CPU/GPU-based computing within the von Neumann domain and the intensive activity and investment in quantum. While classical von Neumann computing will […]

DOE, White House Announce Members of U.S. Quantum Advisory Committee

Technologists from the national labs, universities, federal agencies and industry have been named by the U.S. Department of Energy and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to the National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee (NQIAC). Announced today, the NQAIC’s mission is to “counsel the Administration on ways to ensure continued American leadership […]
