US Launches National AI Research Resource Task Force

June 10, 2021 — The U.S. National Science Foundation and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy today announced the formation of the National Artificial Intelligence Research Resource Task Force. As directed by Congress in the “National AI Initiative Act of 2020,” the task force will serve as a federal advisory committee, developing […]

Argonne Claims 1st Full-core Pin-resolved Nuclear Reactor Model

Understanding the physical behavior inside an operating nuclear reactor can be done only with simulations on a supercomputer due to the high-pressure, high-temperature, and radioactive environment inside a reactor core. The whirls and eddies of coolant that flow around the fuel pins play a critical role in determining the reactor thermal and hydraulics performance and […]

Honeywell Quantum Solutions and Cambridge Quantum Computing Will Combine

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 8, 2021 — Honeywell announced today that Honeywell Quantum Solutions (HQS) and Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) will combine to form what the companies said will be the largest, most advanced standalone quantum computing company in the world, setting the pace for what is projected to become a $1 trillion quantum computing industry over […]

ECP Pushes Cross-Platform Tested Compilers for HPC and Exascale Architectures

The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is working to combine two key technologies, LLVM and continuous integration (CI), to ensure that current and future compilers are stable and performant on high-performance computing (HPC) and exascale computer systems. The proliferation of new machine architectures has made the continuous testing and verification of software (hence the “continuous” in CI) an essential part of US Department of Energy DOE supercomputing. Valentin Clement, a software engineer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory who is part of the team working to include LLVM in the ECP CI testing and verification framework, notes, “We are working to add CI for ECP-relevant architectures. This facilitates….
