Date/Time: 18 April 2018, 10:30 - 12:30
Venue: CPD LG34, Centennial Campus, HKU (Map)
Speaker: Prof. Yutong Lu, Deputy Chief Designer of Tianhe-2 and Director of National Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou
Supercomputing, Super Impact!
Chinese domestic supercomputing technology has been developing very fast, moving to the top level over the world in recent years. Advanced computing and visualizing tools are facilitating scientists and engineers to perform virtual experiments and analyze large-scale datasets. Computing-driven and Bigdata-driven scientific discovery has become a necessary research approach in global environment, life science, nano-materials, high energy physics and other fields. Furthermore, the rapidly increasing computing requirements from economic and social development also call for the birth of the Exascale system.
The world's 2nd most powerful supercomputer Tianhe-2 which installed at National Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou(NSCC-GZ), is empowering researches in various scientific, engineering and medical areas, and creates profound output in terms of both research output and economic opportunities. In this talk Professor Yutong Lu, the Deputy Chief Designer of Tianhe-2, will introduce the improvement of Chinese supercomputing, application cases, the efforts of convergence of HPC and Bigdata, and how to establish a capable application platform on Tianhe-2.
In addition to that, our HKU HPC user representative, Prof. GH Chen of Chemistry, will share their group's experience and achievement on using the Tianhe-2 supercomputer for their research works, that elevates their research output level to another international higher standard.
