ISC 2022: HPC Experts Share Thoughts on Making the Most of Next Week’s Conference

ISC 2022, one of the biggest HPC confabs of the year, will be an in-person event (along with virtual streming) for the first time since 2019. Getting the most of the conference in Hamburg calls for good time management and good judgment. As an assist to both in-person and virtual attendees we spoke with three industry thought leaders – Katie Antypas of NERSC, Earl Joseph of Hyperion Research and Addison Snell of Intersect360 Research – about conference events, keynotes and potential news developments they think will be worthy of your attention.

ISC 2022 Joint Keynote to Be Delivered by NVIDIA and BMW on Digital Twins and HPC

Hamburg, Germany, March 22, 2022 – The ISC 2022 HPC conference organizers have announced that the opening keynote, a joint presentation on digital twins simulation technology, will be delivered by Rev Lebaredian, vice president of Omniverse and simulation technology at NVIDIA, and Michele Melchiorre, senior vice president of Production System, Technical Planning, Tool Shop at […]

Oak Ridge Lab’s Simulation Tool Creates Digital Twin of Buildings

August 11, 2021 — A new tool that simulates the energy profile of every building in America will give homeowners, utilities and companies a quick way to determine energy use and cost-effective retrofits that can reduce energy and carbon emissions. Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed a modeling program […]

Digital Twin Consortium and Object Management Group to Discuss Space Mission IT Challenges at IEEE Conference

Boston – July 15, 2021 – Digital Twin Consortium and Object Management Group (OMG) announced they will present mini-workshops during the 8th IEEE International Conference on Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology (SMC-IT 2021), which runs virtually from July 26-30, 2021. Space missions are leveraging digital twins for many applications, from in-space additive manufacturing to using augmented reality in microgravity […]

Project BreathEasy using Digital Twins of Lungs to Improve COVID-19 Patient Outcomes

OnScale and LEXMA have partnered to create patient-specific digital twins that may accurately predict oxygen and blood flow in a patient’s lungs, helping doctors make critical decisions about ventilator and intubation requirements for COVID-19 patients. Each digital twin is patient-specific and built from a combination of medical images (for example from CT scans and X-rays) and thousands of simulations of lung airflow and blood flow using the LEXMA Moebius fluid dynamics solver running on OnScale’s Cloud Simulation platform.

Advancing manufacturing with simulation-based digital twins

The concept of a digital twin—the mirroring of a physical object with a virtual object created by simulation-based engineering—has been around since NASA began using numerical simulation technology and comparing the results to ground-based physical models as it developed and managed early spacecraft. “Today, digital twins are hot—a subject of intense interest and investment. Gartner puts digital twins fourth on its list of the top 10 strategic technology trends for 2019.”
