HPC-AI Summer Seminar Series - "HPC Matters: How Advanced Computing Enables NASA Missions"

July 11, 2019 - 1:30pm to 2:50pm
Shriram Center for Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering · Shriram 104 (First Floor classroom facing Via Ortega)


HPC Matters: How Advanced Computing Enables NASA MissionsRupak BiswasDirector, Exploration Technology Directorate NASA Ames Research Center"High-fidelity modeling, simulation, and analysis, enabled by supercomputing, are extremely important to NASA’s mission to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research. Anchored by two of the world’s largest supercomputers, NASA Ames Research Center provides a fully integrated production environment to satisfy the agency’s diverse computational needs. However, traditional supercomputing is not enough. Quantum computing promises an unprecedented ability to solve intractable problems by harnessing quantum mechanical effects. Neuromorphic computing can be radiation hardened and effectively used for in-situ decision making in harsh environments. The overall goal with this spectrum of advanced computing capabilities is to provide a consolidated and sustained bleeding-edge environment for all of NASA's computational and analysis requirements."Please be on time, only enter classroom from 1st floor Via Ortega entrance, parking garages are located nearby with visitor parking.Please keep in mind while we offer this to our members of the community, this is a University course with registered students, so please be respectful of this when attending the seminar series.Thanks and hope to see you there!
