Oak Ridge National Laboratory has begun to install Summit. Besides providing unprecedented amounts of computational capacity for traditional high-performance computing applications, it will offer the largest platform in the world for deep learning workloads.
A recent EE Times blog post underscores the importance of supercomputing to society and the strength that public-private research partnerships such as the PathForward program of the Exascale Computing Project contribute to America's competitiveness and innovation.
The Trinity supercomputer’s two partitions sited at Los Alamos National Laboratory were merged, with both Xeon Haswell and the Xeon Phi Knights Landing processors available for production computing in the laboratory’s classified network.
Scientists have developed new computer models to explore what happens when a black hole joins with a neutron star, the superdense remnant of an exploded star. A participant in the research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is working to build increasingly sophisticated models of neutron star mergers and supernovae through his involvement in the US Department of Energy's Exascale Computing Project.
New collaboration initiative between SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, CAMERA, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and Los Alamos National Laboratory as part of DOE’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP).
The website for the ECP's Center for Efficient Exascale Discretizations (CEED) co-design center is now live. CEED is one of the ECP’s five co-design centers established to overcome performance barriers
