Next-Generation High-Performance Computing Seminar

The AI Joint Task Force of UChicago, Argonne, Fermilab, and TTIC kicks off their latest AI + Science seminar series with a talk from Salman Habib, director of Argonne’s Computational Science Division.

Abstract: High-performance computing is undergoing a period of rapid evolution involving changes in computational architectures and the types of problems that are being attacked. Aside from the traditional types of hard” computational problems, there is now considerably more emphasis on system-scale” simulation, data-intensive problems, and large-scale AI/ML applications. The new landscape is of particular importance to Argonne’s Computational Science (CPS) Division, a relatively new organization at the Laboratory. In this talk, I will give a quick overview of next-generation supercomputing opportunities and challenges and present the (provisional) CPS viewpoint regarding how these should be approached. Opportunities for collaboration abound and a small subset of them will be explicitly discussed. 

Speaker Bio: Salman Habib is the Director of Argonne’s Computational Science (CPS) Division and an Argonne Distinguished Fellow. He holds a joint position in Argonne’s Physical Sciences and Engineering (PSE) Directorate, and has joint appointments at the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. Habib’s interests cover a broad span of research, ranging from quantum field theory and quantum information to the formation and evolution of cosmological structures.
