UberCloud Recognized with three HPC Industry Awards

Today the UberCloud announced that it has been recognized in three leading HPC industry awards for two of its innovative engineering projects in the cloud. “We are proud and humbled for the two prestigious Hyperion Innovation Excellence Awards and the HPCwire Editors’ Choice Award,” said Wolfgang Gentzsch, President of UberCloud, “Our innovative projects on UberCloud’s Cloud Simulation Platform showcase engineers, how they can benefit from the cloud to accelerate their simulations and innovate.”

Video: Bridging the Automated Vehicle Gap: Consumer Trust, Technology and Liability

Kristin Kolodge from J.D. Power and Associates gave this talk at the HPC User Forum in Detroit. “With the rapid emergence of new technology in the automotive industry, understanding driver behavior and preferences within the vehicle is more crucial than ever for automakers. For 50 years, J.D. Power has been providing rich automotive consumer insights. Now, J.D. Power will work with HARMAN to go beyond measuring consumer insights to help automakers around the world better measure and understand how their evolving products are satisfying customer needs.”

ALCF – The March toward Exascale

David E. Martin gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “In 2021, the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) will deploy Aurora, a new Intel-Cray system. Aurora, will be capable of over 1 exaflops. It is expected to have over 50,000 nodes and over 5 petabytes of total memory, including high bandwidth memory. The Aurora architecture will enable scientific discoveries using simulation, data and learning.”

Video: Panel Discussion on Innovation in HPC

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Detroit, Earl Joseph from Hyperion Research moderates a panel discussion on Innovation in HPC. “Hyperion Research sponsors the annual HPC and ROI Innovation Awards to recognize noteworthy achievements made by users using High Performance Computing technologies. While there are multiple benchmarks to measure the performance of technical computers, there currently isn’t an adequate methodology to evaluate the economic and scientific value HPC systems contribute. The HPC Innovation Excellence Award Program is designed to help close that gap.”

Towards Exascale Engine Simulations with NEK5000

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Detroit, Muhsin Ameen from Argonne National Laboratory presents: Towards Exascale Engine Simulations with NEK5000. “High-order methods have the potential to overcome the current limitations of standard CFD solvers. For this reason, we have been developing and improving the spectral element code NEK5000 for more than 30 years now.”

Video: End to End Needs for Autonomous Vehicles

Norm Marks from NVIDIA gave this talk at the HPC User Forum. “Fueled by advances in artificial intelligence, cars are getting smart enough to begin to drive themselves. But autonomous vehicles will do more than change how we get around. They have the potential to dramatically reduce the number of car crashes, shrink carbon emissions, and provide mobility to people who can’t drive.”

Data Science meets CFD: FieldView Analytics in Engineering

Steve Legensky from Intelligent Light gave this talk at the HPC User Forum in Detroit. “CFD may be complex, but Intelligent Light’s goal is simple: our customers’ success. Intelligent Light solutions unlock the power and value of a highly productive CFD workflow for engineering and research organizations in variety of industries around the world.”

Video: ExaAM – Transforming Additive Manufacturing through Exascale Simulation

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Detroit, John Turner, Oak Ridge National Laboratory presents: ExaAM – Transforming Additive Manufacturing through Exascale Simulation. “The goal of ExaAM is to develop an AM simulator that will give researchers a tool to determine the best method to print parts with complex geometries and site-specific properties, complemented by real-time, in situ process visualization, analyses and optimization. Coupled with a modern computer-aided design tool, the simulator will allow the routine use of AM to build unique, qualifiable metal alloy parts across many industries relevant to DOE.”

Supercomputing More Fuel-Efficient Engines at GM

Ronald Grover from GM gave this talk at the HPC User Conference. “Ronald Grover his colleagues at GM are using the Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF), a US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), to improve combustion models for diesel passenger car engines with an ultimate goal of accelerating innovative engine designs while meeting strict emissions standards.”

Industry HPC Trends & Advocacy

David Kepczynski from GE gave this talk at the HPC User Forum in Detroit. “David Kepczynski from GE Global Research was recently apponted as the new chair of the ECP Industry Council, an external advisory group of executives from some of the nation’s most prominent companies with a collaborative interest in bringing the potential of exascale computing to a wide range of industry segments.”
