From AI-enabled devices such as Alexa sitting on our countertops to our touch screen-controlled Tesla sedans, high-powered technology is proving that the future is now! With institutions embracing ‘data everywhere’ mentality, high-performance computing (HPC) presents new opportunities to take on emerging challenges across every field. HPC initially emerged as a solution to solve complex scientific problems. Since then, high-performance computers have come an incredibly long way. Modern HPCs are equipped with tens of thousands of processors, capable of parallel computing that standard laptops and desktops can’t compare to.
Given their unprecedented capacity for problem-solving, HPCs lend themselves to the benefit of the society in a big way. Not only does HPC enable accelerated scientific research and computation but it also augments or replaces experiment execution that may be too dangerous or impossible to complete in real-life settings. Over the years, researchers have used HPCs to generate climate models that provide visual insight into the evolution of climate over centuries. Scientists have also taken the skies by storm, launching supercomputers into space for exploration and data collection. HPCs, today, have thousands of use cases that ultimately work to improve the technological scope of the world, changing lives, and saving lives with incredible clock speed. Going forward, high-performance computers will focus on efficiency, making more with less. The future of HPCs lies in biosciences, geographical data collection, and other disciplines. Supercomputers will also be used to edit feature-length films and stream live even across the globe. HPCs also show immense promise in healthcare to develop cures for diseases and deliver faster and more accurate diagnoses. The future of high-performance computers is a bright one, and it’s already unfolding right before our eyes!
