This week, Georgia Tech attends Supercomputing ’15 – an annual, premier conference for thousands of computationalists who act “under the hood” for other professionals. A contingent of more than 50 faculty, researchers and students from Georgia Tech will showcase recent scientific advances and technical applications. Associate Professor Edmond Chow is the team chair for the Georgia Tech contingent at Supercomputing ’15.
Recently, an acquaintance at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency said what science is about to achieve in the next 25 years will surpass five-fold the discoveries of the past century. Think about that for a moment. To quintuple scientific progress, what exactly will it take? I believe it begins with high-performance computing (HPC) and advances in computational engineering.
