DESCRIPTION

Abstract: Historically, high-performance computing advances have been largely dependent on concurrent advances in algorithms, software, architecture, and hardware that enable higher levels of floating-point performance for computational models. Advances today are also shaped by data-analysis pipelines, data architectures, and machine learning tools that manage large volumes of scientific and engineering data. We will examine some of the challenges involved with high performance computing and big data for scientific computing.
