Exascale Day 2022
To celebrate those who keep asking what if, why not, and what’s next.
The exascale era is here
Now that the supercomputing industry has arrived at exascale – represented by a quintillion calculations per second – we can look forward to the impact of this remarkable achievement. At HPE, we see how exascale computing will change the world. More science, more discovery, and more innovation that improves the way we live and work.
Speakers for Exascale Day 2022
Hear from research scientists bent on making the world we live in safer and more sustainable; and leaders from the Department of Energy and National Laboratories that feature exascale-class supercomputing, and leaders from supercomputing centers around the world. The program will also feature a discussion covering practical ways to help our industry be more diverse.
In this discussion, Dr. Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, Director of the Office of Science for the U.S. Department of Energy, details the impacts of an Exascale machine on the DoE’s research arsenal — what it means for science, advancement, and increased access for people who make breakthroughs possible. Justin Hotard, HPE’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, HPC & AI, will also share his vision of the possibilities when Exascale meets AI and takes on big data workloads.
Diversity is important in all industries, but perhaps especially so in supercomputing. Hear from Alison Kennedy, STFC Hartree Centre and co-founder of Women in HPC, and Shin-Wen Kuo, VP & COO of HPE’s HPC and AI business as they share practical ways organizations can encourage, hire, and promote diversity.
Now that we’ve arrived at the exascale era, hear from Oak Ridge National Laboratory on what’s next, including some early science results run on Frontier. Also hear from Argonne National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as they progress closer to their systems being online, and what preparations are underway so their science teams can hit the road running.
Listen in as we provide an update on what’s new with Pawsey Supercomputing Centre. Mark Stickells, Executive Director joins ESG Practice Director Scott Sinclair as they discuss the transition from their Magnus supercomputer to Setonix, highlight some recent science, as well as delve into the what’s important to the organization from diversity to honoring the culture and region they are located in.
Join us for an update on CSC and the LUMI supercomputer. Kimmo Koski, Managing Director for LUMI joins ESG Practice Director Scott Sinclair for a discussion about the priority science, the benefits of being part of a multi-country consortium, and the unique benefits of the geography where LUMI is located.
Supercomputing and commercial organizations
Industry Insights with 3M
Supercomputing is instrumental in designing the products we use every day. In this interview, hear from Gabe Turner, HPC Solutions Architect at 3M about how supercomputing impacts product development at 3M.
Industry insights with GE Research
Supercomputing is instrumental in designing the products we use every day. In this discussion, hear from Dave Kepczynski, CIO at GE Research about the role supercomputing plays in products they bring to market now, and in the future.
Capturing the wonder of who we are
Exascale supercomputing isn’t about speed for speed’s sake. It’s about speed for humans’ sakes. For precision medicine that means saving lives. Berg Health’s Dr. Niven Narain explains how Frontier will help medicine bring data and AI together to understand who we are as individual patients at a level never before possible.
Capturing the power of the wind
A sustainable energy future can be more than just a hope. It can be a reality. GE Renewable Energy’s Engineering Exec for Advanced Technology and Sciences Joe Citeno explains why and how Frontier and exascale supercomputing can transform wind turbine technology—allowing engineers to design more efficient, reliable and powerful machines
