insideHPC-Hyperion Research Interview: Argonne’s Rick Stevens on the Future of Everything – U.S. Post-Exascale Strategy, AI for Science, HPC in 2040 and an Aurora Install Update

In this interview conducted on behalf of HPC analyst firm Hyperion Research, we spoke with Argonne National Laboratory’s Rick Stevens about the present and future of HPC. The starting point for this conversation is a presentation Stevens gave at a Hyperion event in Washington related to implementation of the CHIPS and Science Act and includes his insights on the post-exascale build-out of an integrated network of U.S. supercomputing capacity (the Integrated Research Infrastructure, or IRI). We then look at AI for science and the use of data-driven modeling and simulation, which shows the potential to deliver major performance gains for researchers….

@HPCpodcast: Ukraine’s Frontline Software Soldiers; the UK’s Exascale Strategy; House Hearing on Global Tech Leadership; Intel’s Revised Roadmap

Soon after the one-year observance (Feb. 24) of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the Wall Street Journal ran an article by Shyam Sankar, CTO at big data and machine learning company Palantir, on the vital role of Ukrainian software engineers cum front line soldiers in the country’s war effort. It’s a remarkable story of technology entrepreneurship brought to the battlefield, one that helps explain how Ukraine, a country with less than 25 percent the population of Russia, has successfully pushed the invaders back from their early territorial gains. Sankar’s article compelled Shahin and Doug to reflect on the new type of war Ukraine is waging….

@HPCpodcast: The AI Gold Rush, Virtual Quantum, an Advance for Silicon Photonics and Nuclear Energy for Future Supercomputers

In what may become a regular segment of the @HPCpodcast, Shahin and Doug cover important recent developments in HPC and AI that signal changes in markets and policies. Always, we keep an eye on where these developments fit into the big picture, what it all means. This time, we look at what may be AI’s “iPhone moment” (you guessed it: ChatGPT) and the ensuing AI gold rush that’s been gaining massive investment momentum since about 2015, much to the happiness of NVIDIA shareholders; virtual quantum computers; and how advances in silicon photonics could change the chip – and therefore the technology – industry….
