What May Come from Exascale? Improved Medicines, Longer-range Batteries, Better Control of 3D Parts, for Starters

As Exascale Day (Oct. 18) approaches, we thought it appropriate to post a recent article from Scott Gibson of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP), an overview of the anticipated advances in scientific discovery enabled by exascale-class supercomputers. Much of this research will focus on atomic physics and its impact on such areas as catalysts used in industrial conversion, molecular dynamics simulations and quantum mechanics used to develop new materials for improved medicines, batteries, sensors and computing devices.

First Annual Exascale Day on 10/18 to Celebrate Supercomputing Discoveries

“Exascale Day celebrates the scientists and researchers who make breakthrough discoveries with the help of some of the fastest supercomputers in the world. Exascale Day celebrates those who keep asking what if, why not, and what’s next — with the advanced technology to attain the answers. The founding organizations have established National Exascale Day as a registered holiday to be celebrated annually on October 18 (1018).”
