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.

Bo Ewald Presents: The Quantum Effect – HPC Without FLOPS

Bo Ewald from D-Wave Systems presented this talk at the HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference. “This talk will provide an introduction to quantum computing and briefly review different approached to implementing a quantum computer. D-Wave’s approach to implementing a quantum annealing architecture and the software and programming environment will be discussed. Finally, some potential applications of quantum computing will also be addressed.”
