The Lead

High Performance Communication

June 9, 2014 10:12 am | by Tom Vander Aa, imec ExaScience Life Lab | Blogs | Comments

In the late 90s, I was teaching parallel programming in C using MPI to students. The most important lesson I wanted them to remember is that communication is much more important than computation. The form of the benchmark couldn't be more common: a set of convolutional filters applied to an image, one filter after the other in a pipelined fashion.

Think ISC is Just a Trade Show? – Think again!

May 13, 2014 9:16 am | by Bernd Mohr, Jülich Supercomputing Centre Institute for Advanced Simulation | Blogs | Comments

The International Supercomputing Conference developed from a small expert workshop back in 1986 into a full-blown five-day technical HPC conference today. Now in its 29th year, ISC is the world’s oldest and Europe’s most important conference and networking event for the HPC community. What bugs me is I still run into people who make their living in the scientific computing world, but think it is not worth going ...

Looking for Job Security? Consider becoming an HPC Performance Tool Developer

April 22, 2014 4:01 pm | by Bernd Mohr, Jülich Supercomputing Centre Institute for Advanced Simulation | Blogs | Comments

When I started to work on performance tools for parallel computers 25 years ago, I wasn’t sure how long I would be able to work in this interesting and exciting area of high performance computing.  Performance was always in the center of HPC, so anyone helping application developers to optimize and tune their codes was in high demand.

NASA’s Rupak Biswas Sees Usable Quantum Computing before End of Decade

April 17, 2014 2:45 pm | by ISC | Articles | Comments

Quantum computing is a technology that promises to revolutionize the IT industry. Thus far, though, it has been unable to shake its perception as a sort of permanent “technology of the future.”  But, with the availability of quantum annealing computers from D-Wave, that perception might be changing. One of the first D-Wave systems has been deployed at NASA Ames Research Center, where researchers have been busy putting the machine ...
