TimeTuesday, 16 November 20213:30pm - 5pm CST
DescriptionHigh-performance computing hardware is undergoing a Cambrian explosion, from wafer-scale AI accelerators through quantum computers: GPUs may soon seem mundane. Simultaneously, the complexity of high-performance software has grown nonlinearly for decades, and the prospect of evolving this ecosystem to support future hardware may seem daunting. Our panel of distinguished experts will discuss how programming future systems will differ from current practice due to rapidly-changing hardware, improved programming languages and models, the incorporation of artificial intelligence technologies and other fundamental shifts in the modern technological landscape. This classic topic of debate, how we will program HPC applications, has never been more interesting.
