The Impact of Exascale and the Exascale Computing Project on Industry
DescriptionExascale computing promises broad advances in simulation, data analytics, and machine learning. The US Department of Energy (DOE) is funding the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) to develop the applications, software, and integration needed to harness the immense computing power of exascale machines. As part of this effort, the ECP established the Industry and Agency Council (IAC), made up of executives from US industry, US government agencies and US independent software vendors (ISVs). As the ECP winds down, this panel is a chance for IAC members to reflect on how the ECP and the move to exascale computing is impacting industry’s current and planned use of HPC in saving energy, boosting competitiveness, and building global technology leadership. Moderated by Fran Hill (Chief Scientist for DoD’s HPC Modernization Program), the panel will be a lively and informative discussion of how exascale and the ECP are impacting businesses both large and small.
