SC19 Announces Keynote Speaker Dr. Steven Squyres: Exploring the Solar System with the Power of Technology

SC19 Keynote Dr. Steven Squyres Cornell University     Computing Power and Innovation Guide the Way Between 2004 and 2018, mankind spent more than 5,600 cumulative days exploring Mars—yet the principal investigator on those missions never needed a spacesuit. That’s because Spirit and Opportunity, NASA’s two Mars rovers, were guided by the computing power that

SC19 August Need to Know: Smart Cities, ToTA Announcement, Tech Papers in the Schedule, Exhibitor Opportunities, Support for Student Travel

Smart Cities: Computing at the Edge You’ve probably heard the hype around connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), but do you know how much of a role HPC plays in making dreams of self-driving cars into reality? Or how researchers in the fields of edge computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and big data

Autonomous Vehicles and HPC: Moving Quickly Beyond the Hype

Few technological innovations in recent years have generated more attention (and debate) than the seemingly imminent arrival of self-driving cars. Known within the industry as connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), these once-futuristic concepts edge ever closer to reality – and when they do become deployed at Level 4 or higher on the Level of Automation

Food Production & HPC: Understanding Plant Growth From Above & Below

Applying Ones and Zeros to Fields and Farms From Thomas Malthus in the 18th century to Paul Ehrlich in the 1960s, people have long feared that population would outstrip the planet’s capacity to feed people. What has kept those predictions at bay has been technology—not only in the soil, but more recently in the field
