A team led by ORNL’s Amit Shyam and Dongwon Shin is using Titan to explore the possibilities of designing various high-temperature–capable alloys, in hopes of changing the paradigm for current alloy design and significantly shortening the typical alloy development and deployment process.
OLCF staff members recently built and ran a technology called containers, which bundle an operating system and software into a single file and make it easier for researchers to run deep learning software on OLCF supercomputers.
Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility staff discussed OLCF resources that could be leveraged for ECP research and development, including the facility’s next flagship supercomputer, Summit, expected to go online in 2018.
While upgrading chemistry applications in the pre-Summit development environment known as Summitdev, Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility staff fixed an unexpected bottleneck in a key tensor algebra library, boosting performance by as much as 10 times.
OLCF staff members led a workshop January 10–12 to provide CAAR teams with a quickstart guide for using the Summitdev early access system, which features IBM’s POWER processors and NVIDIA’s Pascal GPU–based architecture.
A team led by the California Institute of Technology’s (Caltech’s) Thomas Miller used the OLCF’s Titan to identify potential electrolyte materials and predict which ones could enhance the performance of lithium-ion batteries.
