Dr. 美国公共广播公司365体育中心的首席技术官比尔·尼茨伯格提供了他对高性能计算机未来的看法. 高性能计算改善了人们的生活——它是加速解决复杂科学和工程问题的引擎——使产品更加可持续, making cars safer, making dangerous weather more predictable, even making medicines more effective. 高性能计算一直以来都是利用大量的计算能力来解决大问题...quickly. “Big” and “fast” define hpc, with the latest milestone, exascale computers, capable of a billion billion calculations per second, expected to arrive next year. What is changing is what’s inside these engines of computing, how hpc is being consumed, and who is using hpc. hpc is becoming more and more heterogenous, with the addition of gpus, vector engines, 以及当今移动电话上运行的高性能Arm处理器, and, eventually, quantum processors. hpc is moving from “owning big, 到购买和租赁的结合(通过云). and, 高性能计算正在超越“仅限工程专家”的学科，面向更广泛的市场受众, and also to a broader set of disciplines, especially those leveraging AI, machine learning, and data analytics.
The recording is about 11 minutes long, and was presented at the 2020 Global Altair Technology conference.
