Abstract: Come and learn how high-performance computing (HPC) fosters scientific discovery! We will look back at nearly two decades of supercomputing innovations that have reshaped the gaming industry, enhanced climate/weather predictions, and facilitated research on drug design. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is yet another game changer. Did you know that AI powered by supercomputers has been at the forefront of rapid research responses in the international fight against Covid-19? This presentation will highlight successful HPC advances and call out opportunities for impacting the future of our global society.

Bio: Satoshi Matsuoka is the Director of RIKEN Center for Computational Science, and he oversees the deployment and operation of the Fugaku supercomputer. He has been the leader of the TSUBAME series of supercomputers that pioneered the use of GPUs in supercomputing. He has been a major driving force behind the development of Fugaku, which won first place in four major rankings of supercomputer performance (Top500, HPCG, HPL-AI, and Graph500) in June 2020. He is the recipient of the 2014 IEEE-CS Sidney Fernbach Memorial Award and more recently was awarded the Medal of Honor with purple ribbon from the emperor of Japan.

The Supercomputing Spotlights webinar series is presented by the SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing (SIAG/SC) as part of new SIAG/SC initiatives that focus on raising awareness of HPC opportunities and growing the community. We invite you to get involved!
