Conventional Wisdom Watch: Matsuoka & Co. Take on 12 Myths of HPC

A group of HPC thinkers, including the estimable Satoshi Matsuoka of the RIKEN Center for Computational Science in Japan, have come together to challenge common lines of thought they say have become, to varying degrees, accepted wisdom in HPC. In a paper entitled “Myths and Legends of High-Performance Computing” appearing this week on the Arvix […]

Nimbix Federated: A comprehensive architecture for secure, cloud-managed, multi-site supercomputing-as-a-service

High-performance computing (HPC) is a complex ecosystem that is increasingly being democratized by cloud and cloud-like technologies. This increased accessibility enables engineers and scientists to consume highly advanced resources without extensive IT expertise, advancing the digital transformation of the physical world. Now that industry has had a taste of on-demand supercomputing, the hunger for faster, […]

@HPCpodcast: All Things Quantum from 3 Practitioners at Brookhaven Lab (Guess Which Quantum Platforms They Use)

Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Kerstin Kleese van Dam, Gabriella Carini, and Meifing Lin join Shahin and Doug to discuss all things quantum, covering quantum sensing, quantum networks and quantum computing. These women are the front lines of HPC and quantum, discussing the state of quantum capabilities today, workloads in which quantum delivers advantages over classical computing, and the challenges of quantum from an experience-based point of view.

A Year of Quantum Information Science on NERSC’s Perlmutter Supercomputer

Last November, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory launched its QIS@Perlmutter program to provide researchers working on quantum information science (QIS) problems with supercomputing resources, while also exploring how QIS could benefit high-performance computing (HPC). NERSC is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) computing facility that provides supercomputing and other scientific computing resources to thousands of researchers each year. Among these researchers, QIS experts from government, industry, and academia are interested in using supercomputers at NERSC and other HPC centers to advance quantum technologies and study untapped questions in quantum-driven sciences such as materials, chemistry, and physics.
