Evolving NASA’s Data and Information Systems for Earth Science

Rahul Ramachandran from NASA gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “NASA’s Earth Science Division (ESD) missions help us to understand our planet’s interconnected systems, from a global scale down to minute processes. ESD delivers the technology, expertise and global observations that help us to map the myriad connections between our planet’s vital processes and the effects of ongoing natural and human-caused changes.”

Arm A64fx and Post-K: A Game-Changing CPU & Supercomputer

Satoshi Matsuoka from RIKEN gave this talk at the HPC User Forum in Santa Fe. “Post-K is the flagship next generation national supercomputer being developed by Riken and Fujitsu in collaboration. Post-K will have hyperscale class resource in one exascale machine, with well more than 100,000 nodes of sever-class A64fx many-core Arm CPUs, realized through extensive co-design process involving the entire Japanese HPC community.”

Video: A History of Los Alamos National Lab

Terry Wallace from Los Alamos National Lab gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “The Laboratory was established in 1943 as site Y of the Manhattan Project for a single purpose: to design and build an atomic bomb. It took just 27 months. The Los Alamos of today has a heightened focus on worker safety and security awareness, with the ever-present core values of intellectual freedom, scientific excellence, and national service. Outstanding science underpins the Laboratory’s past and its future.”

Making HPC Cloud a Reality in the Federal Space

Martin Rieger from Penguin Computing gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “Built on a secure, high-performance bare-metal server platform with supercomputing-grade, non-blocking InfiniBand interconnects infrastructure, Penguin on Demand can handle the most challenging simulation and analytics. But, because of access via the cloud (from either a traditional Linux command line interface (CLI) or a secure web portal) you get both instant accesses and extreme scalability — without having to invest in on-premise infrastructure or the associated operational costs.”

Video: New AI Hardware and Trends

In this video from the HPC User Forum, Alex Norton from Hyperion Research presents: New AI Hardware and Trends. This presentation will highlight some of the trends in emerging technologies associated with the AI ecosystem. Much of the information in this presentation is broad trends of the overall market in terms of the emerging technology […]

Exascale Computing Project Software Activities

Mike Heroux from Sandia National Labs gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “The Exascale Computing Project is accelerating delivery of a capable exascale computing ecosystem for breakthroughs in scientific discovery, energy assurance, economic competitiveness, and national security.The goal of the ECP Software Technology focus area is to develop a comprehensive and coherent software stack that will enable application developers to productively write highly parallel applications that can portably target diverse exascale architectures.”

Video: Making Innovation Real – Dell EMC Update

Ed Turkel from Dell EMC gave this talk at the HPC User Forum in Santa Fe. “As data analytics, HPC and AI converge and the technology evolves, Dell EMC’s worldwide HPC and AI innovation centers provide expert leadership, test new machine learning technologies, and share best practices. In working with the HPC Community, Dell EMC HPC and AI Centers of Excellence provide a network of resources based on the wide-ranging know-how and experience of technology developers, service providers, and end-users.”

Thermodynamics of Computation: Far More Than Counting Bit Erasure

David Wolpert from the Santa Fe Institute gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “The thermodynamic restrictions on all systems that perform computation provide major challenges to modern design of computers. As a result, the time is ripe to pursue a new field of science and engineering: a modern thermodynamics of computation. This would combine the resource/time tradeoffs of concern in conventional CS with the thermodynamic tradeoffs in computation that are now being revealed. In this way we should be able to develop the tools necessary both for analyzing thermodynamic costs in biological systems and for engineering next-generation computers.”

Video: EuroHPC – The EU Strategy in HPC

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Santa Fe, Leonardo Flores from the European Commission presents: EuroHPC – The EU Strategy in HPC. “EuroHPC is a joint collaboration between European countries and the European Union about developing and supporting exascale supercomputing by 2022/2023. EuroHPC will permit the EU and participating countries to coordinate their efforts and share resources with the objective of deploying in Europe a world-class supercomputing infrastructure and a competitive innovation ecosystem in supercomputing technologies, applications and skills.”
