Ganthier, Turkel on the Dell EMC Road Ahead

Who is Dell EMC and why should you care? Glad you asked is Jim Ganthier’s quick response. Ganthier is SVP for validated solutions and high performance computing for the new (even bigger) technology giant Dell EMC following Dell’s acquisition of EMC in September. In this case, says Ganthier, the blending of the two companies is a 1+1 = 5 proposition. Not bad math if you can pull it off.

D-Wave SC16 Update: What’s Bo Ewald Saying These Days

November 18, 2016

Tucked in a back section of the SC16 exhibit hall, quantum computing pioneer D-Wave has been talking up its new 2000-qubit processor announced in September. Forget for a moment the criticism sometimes aimed at D-Wave. This small Canadian company has sold several machines including, for example, ones to Lockheed and NASA, and has worked with Google on mapping machine learning problems to quantum computing. In July Los Alamos National Laboratory took possession of a 1000-quibit D-Wave 2X system that LANL ordered a year ago around the time of SC15. Read more…

SC16 Precision Medicine Panel Proves HPC Matters

November 16, 2016

In virtually every way, precision medicine (PM) is a poster child for the HPC Matters mantra and was a good choice for the Monday panel opening SC16 (HPC Impacts on Precision Medicine: Life’s Future – The Next Frontier in Healthcare). PM’s tantalizing promise is to touch all of us, not just writ large but individually – effectively fighting disease, enhancing health and lifestyle, extending life, and necessarily contributing to basic science along the way. All of this can only done with HPC. Read more…
