@HPCpodcast: A Look Back at ISC 2023 with a Look Ahead to the Uncertain Future of Leadership-Class Supercomputing

In this Lenovo-sponsored episode of the @HPCpodcast, Shahin and Doug discuss the recent annual ISC 2023 HPC confab in Hamburg, a conference that this year showed growth in attendees and number of exhibitors, if not a return to pre-pandemic totals. Among the topics we cover: quantum computing, more discussion of the TOP500 ranking of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, the rapid growth of HPC in Europe, and whether we live in times when “everyone” is a systems vendor (think NVIDIA and Microsoft). We also delve into an ISC keynote delivered by the University of Utah’s (and the National Science Board’s) Dan Reed, one of the most influential HPC thinkers and planners, on the uncertainties afflicting the next generation of leadership-class supercomputers.
