The Dell Technologies HPC Community Interviews: BioTeam’s Ari Berman Talks HPC-Driven Life Sciences Research

Both Dr. Ari Berman and the consulting company of which he is CEO, BioTeam, stand at the crossroads of scientific research and HPC. As the company says of itself: “BioTeam is primarily a group of scientists who were forced to learn IT, software development and high performance computing to get their research done.” Why “forced”? […]

The Hyperion-insideHPC Interviews: Irene Qualters’ Long View of HPC, from a Start-up Called Cray to Today’s ‘No-Analog’ Research at Los Alamos

Irene Qualters, a senior-level manager at Los Alamos National Laboratory, has been at the forefront of the convergence of supercomputing and science for decades, extending back to joining Cray as one of that company’s first 100 employees. Few members of the HPC community can match her wealth of experience and wisdom regarding the future of scientific computing and its “no-analog” physics-informed AI exploration of problems confronting our planet, such as climate change.

SeRC Turns to oneAPI Multi-Chip Programming Model for Accelerated Research

At ISC 2020 Digital, the Swedish e-Science Research Center (SeRC), Stockholm, has announced plans to use Intel’s oneAPI unified programming language by researchers conducting  massive simulations powered by CPUs and GPUs. The center said it chose the oneAPI programming model, designed to span CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and other architectures and silicon,  to accelerate compute for research using GROMACS (GROningen MAchine for Chemical Simulations) molecular dynamics software, developed by SeRC and first released in 1991
