Fermilab Lecture Series - Super Smart Supercomputers

  • Jan 17, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • Fermilab's Ramsey Auditorium

Enormous supercomputers are being used to accelerate scientific discovery and predict the future. From exploring the secret inner workings of the universe or improving combustion in jet engines to predicting the impact of climate change on future farmlands, supercomputers are helping us address the world's most important problems. The relatively new discipline of computing is changing every corner of scientific discovery as well as our lives. This talk will explain the technologies and computer science fueling a new breed of massive, powerful, and smart computers. From the origins of computing to the world's fastest computers, we will explore the technology that lets cars drive themselves and promises personalized, genome-based medicine.

      I'll be by the entrance to the auditorum wearing a blue shirt and a Meetup badge from about 7:00pm until about 15 min before the beginning of the talk. Feel free to say hello to me and stay for a while to have a chance to meet other people from the group before entering the auditorium.
