Extreme Computing and Industrial Competitiveness

SESSION: Extreme Computing and Industrial Competitiveness


TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Alice Koniges

Panelists:Walter Kirchner, Steven E. Koonin, J. Michael McQuade, Dona Crawford


Industry, from pharmaceutical to oil & gas to automotive to aeronautics, has computing challenges that cannot be fully addressed using current high-end computing capabilities. Examples of these are atomistic to continuum simulations for materials and chemical macro parameters; turbulent combustion in closed and open volumetric geometries; and enhanced oil & gas reservoir modeling. These challenges limit, despite marked advances in computing capabilities, the rate of innovation and of technology development to solve enterprise and societal problems. The next level of extreme computing, exascale, will provide a transformative opportunity for these industries and others to increase their innovation capacity and decrease time to market. Nations that encourage and support the development and use of next -generation extreme computing for national and economic security will lead 21st century competitive economies. The undergirding technologies to accomplish the next highest level of compute, exascale, will become pervasive in other consumer electronic products.
