Taking a Virtual Turn, ModSim 2020 Focuses on the AI Era

From the front lines of this year’s ModSim conference, Charity Plata, Computational Science Initiative, Communications, Brookhaven National Laboratory, send this report: Recently, the ninth annual Workshop on Modeling & Simulation of Systems and Applications, known as ModSim 2020 — usually a 2.5-day event held amid the picturesque backdrop of the University of Washington Botanic Gardens in […]

TIGER Supercomputer Spins Up at Princeton

Princeton’s new flagship TIGER supercomputer is now up and running at their High-Performance Computing Research Center (HPCRC). As a hybrid system, TIGER is built from a combination of Intel Skylake chips and NVIDIA Pascal P100 GPUs, adding up to a peak performance of 2.67 Petaflops peak performance. “Computation has become an indispensable tool in accomplishing that mission,” Dominick said. “With the newest addition to our High-Performance Computing suite, Princeton continues to equip its faculty with the most advanced computational tools available. The TIGER cluster, and the remarkable staff that support it, are symbolic of the University’s commitment to sustained excellence.”

Princeton Research on Electron-photon Small-talk Could have Big Impact on Quantum Computing

In a step that brings silicon-based quantum computers closer to reality, researchers at Princeton University have built a device in which a single electron can pass its quantum information to a particle of light. The particle of light, or photon, can then act as a messenger to carry the information to other electrons, creating connections that form the circuits of a quantum computer.
