Accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation across a broad range of disciplines - Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of CrayHe added that “…Shasta will be the foundation for the upcoming exascale-era characterized by extreme performance capability, new data-centric workloads, and heterogeneous computing.” Argonne National Laboratory Director Paul Kearns is of the opinion that this innovation integrates high-performance computing and artificial intelligence and it would benefit America greatly. It will also be used to address the real-world problems like extreme weather forecasting, medical treatments, understanding the human brain better, advanced comprehension of the universe, and more.
Achieving exascale is imperative, not only to better the scientific community, but also to better the lives of everyday Americans. Aurora and the next generation of exascale supercomputers will apply HPC and AI technologies to areas such as cancer research, climate modeling and veterans’ health treatments. The innovative advancements that will be made with exascale will have an incredibly significant impact on our society - Rick Perry, US Secretary of Energy
The convergence of AI and high-performance computing is an enormous opportunity to address some of the world’s biggest challenges and an important catalyst for economic opportunity - Bob Swan, Intel CEOThis supercomputer, which would be used to extensively accelerate scientific research and discovery, will be developed at DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago and will be delivered by 2021, with the contract valued at more than $500 million.
