July 9, 2018 — The 70th meeting of the HPC User Forum, September 4-6 at the historic Dearborn Inn near Detroit, will zero in on the newest developments in the U.S. and European exascale initiatives (including the European Processor Initiative). Key topics include AI and other advanced analytics, automated driving systems a.k.a. self-driving vehicles, additive manufacturing and HPC in clouds (and outer space).
There will be a featured presentation by leading auto industry market research firm J.D. Power and Associates and the Miller Canfield law firm on their recent report on legal issues surrounding self-driving vehicles in the U.S. and around the world – or the talks on an important new HPC use: supporting massive urban sensor networks.
To promote professional and social networking, the organizers have reserved the Henry Ford Museum for the Wednesday dinner.
