In honor of the the second annual Exascale Day, AMD and HPCwire hosted a discussion on Exascale Computing with Gina Tourassi, Bronson Messer and John Turner
This week marks the second annual Exascale Day celebration, an event that highlights the need for and potential benefits of Exascale Computing. Exascale Day gives the high-performance computing (HPC) industry a chance to reflect on the progress made in bringing exascale systems to fruition and the new research areas that they will enable.
In honor of the day, AMD and HPCwire hosted a discussion on Exascale Computing with several people involved with exascale efforts at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Addison Snell, CEO, Intersect360 Research, served as the moderator for the discussion featuring:
- Gina Tourassi, Distinguished Research Scientist and the Director of the National Center of Computational Sciences and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF)
- Bronson Messer, Distinguished Scientist and Director of Science for the OLCF
- John Turner, Computational Engineering Program Director at ORNL
