DOE Funds $17.5M for 3 ORNL-led Quantum Research Projects

September 22, 2021 — Of the $61 million recently announced by the U.S. Department of Energy for quantum information science studies, $17.5 million will fund research at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. These projects will help build the foundation for the quantum internet, advance quantum entanglement capabilities — which involve sharing information through paired particles of light […]

Toolkit Delivers 4D Visualization, Addresses Data Volume Challenges in Exascale

The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) has announced that a team of researchers has developed the Feature Tracking Kit (FTK), which uses simplicial spacetime meshing to simplify, scale, and deliver novel feature-tracking algorithms for in situ data analysis and scientific visualization. FTK delivers feature-tracking tools, scales feature-tracking algorithms in distributed and parallel environments, and simplifies development […]

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 […]

Argonne and Oak Ridge Award Codeplay Software to Strengthen SYCL Support

Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has awarded Codeplay a contract implementing the oneAPI DPC++ compiler, an implementation of the SYCL open standard software, to support AMD GPU-based high-performance compute (HPC) supercomputers. The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is deploying an exascale supercomputer, Aurora, based on Intel GPUs with […]

How DOE Scientists Disrupted COVID-19

In early 2020, when the novel coronavirus was gaining momentum but had not yet been named a pandemic, computational chemist Marti Head of Oak Ridge National Laboratory – along with scientists and researchers around the globe – abruptly switched her focus to the fight against COVID-19. The world was struggling to understand this new virus known as severe acute […]

ORNL Names Innovation Crossroads Cohort of Manufacturing, Building and Clean Energy Technology Entrepreneurs

Six science and technology innovators from across the United States will join the fifth cohort of Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Innovation Crossroads program in June. The southeast’s only research and development program for entrepreneurs based at a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory, Innovation Crossroads provides support to science-based startups to help advance game-changing technologies […]

The US-China Supercomputing Race, Post-Exascale HPC Government Policy and the ‘Partitioning of the Internet’

All over the world, HPC has burst into geopolitics. HPC – broadly defined here as advanced supercomputing combined with big AI – is at the fault lines of national and regional rivalries, particularly between the U.S. and China, expanding in power, cost, intensity and in potential impact. Which is to say that global players put […]
