We are entering the EXA-scale era of supercomputing. What are the challenges and effects of promoting innovation? | Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2021: Ako sa stať najlepším?The exponential growth of data, the requirements for real-time analysis and decision-making, the massive rise in the use of artificial intelligence methods, the acceleration of product development cycles through the use of so-called digital twins - these are just examples of the topics we face recently. In addition, things need to be addressed and assessed in full complexity and multidisciplinary, ie without simplifying prerequisites. The development of high-performance computing (supercomputing) is one of the key areas for strengthening our innovative capabilities on the road to building a knowledge economy and information society.
However, the supercomputer is just a tool, it is necessary to build the surrounding supporting ecosystem through new modern programming methods, improving applications, ways of accessing and sharing data and especially the development of human resources, their knowledge and skills.
The aim of the presentation is to present the perspective of HPE, a leading global supplier in the field of HPC and supercomputing, current trends, challenges and effects to support the innovation potential that the development of HPC and AI technologies brings.
The supercomputer is not just about computing power | Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2021: Ako sa stať najlepším?
Support for building sufficient computing capacity allows a significant strengthening of innovation potential in a given country, not only in the field of science, research and education, but also in the commercial segment, and brings more effective ways of their mutual establishment and cooperation. However, the supercomputer as such is only a tool, the goal is to build the surrounding supporting ecosystem, especially to develop human resources, their knowledge and skills.
