The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner and Doug Ball Talk CFD, Autonomous Mobility and Driving Down HPC Package Sizing

Doug Ball is a leading expert in computational fluid dynamics and aerodynamic engineering, disciplines he became involved with more than 40 years ago. In this interview with the late Rich Brueckner of insideHPC, Ball discusses the increased scale and model complexity that HPC technology has come to handle and, looking to the future, his anticipation […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner and ECP’s Doug Kothe Talk Exascale, Containers of the Future and Multiple Machine Coordination

As director of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP), Doug Kothe leads one of the United State’s most important strategic computing efforts, one that promises significant impacts on scientific research and national competitiveness. The position draws upon Kothe’s more than three decades of experience as a physicist and computer scientist at several of the Department of […]

Thomas Sterling Eulogizes Rich Brueckner, Ann Redelfs, Steve Tuecke, Lucy Nowell: 4 Leaders Lost to the HPC Community

At his annual keynote address closing out the ISC 2020 conference, Thomas Sterling, Professor of Intelligent Systems Engineering at the University of Indiana, eulogized four members of the HPC community who died over the past year. Here are excerpts from his remarks: It’s my sad duty to, but certainly a responsibility, to note some of […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner Talks with Jack Collins about the Emergence of ‘HPC Everywhere’ and Its Impact on Science

HPC industry veteran Jack Collins, long-time fixture in the scientific supercomputing community, has seen it all in HPC, from the days when his input/output device for storing integrals was nine-track tape to today’s 750-GPU monster systems. So he has a full appreciation for how far HPC has come. At the same time, he’s concerned about the power of HPC for dark purposes, such as deepfakes: “’Seeing is believing,’ is what people used to say,” he told the late Rich Brueckner. “I can hack a video and make it look like anything in an afternoon. That’s potentially societal altering. We have to be very careful with that.”

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Rich Brueckner Talks with Paul Muzio about His Hopes, Concerns for HPC and AI

  Industry luminary Paul Muzio, holder of prominent positions in academia and private industry over a multi-decade career in HPC, is bullish on supercomputing – and deeply concerned. In this video, Muzio spoke with the late Rich Brueckner about the past, present and future of supercomputing. He sees a future in which compute power is […]

Hats Over Hearts

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Rich Brueckner. His passing is an unexpected and enormous blow to both his family and the HPC Community. In his coverage of the HPC market, he was tireless and thorough. What Rich brought to the table was a deep curiosity about computing and science, and the people that made the two happen.
