Title: Approaching Infinite Computing on Petascale Day 2013
Summary: Many STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines are currently experiencing exponential growth thanks in large part to High Performance Computing (HPC). The reliability of the computing “roadmap” has made the future of computing relatively safe to predict. The October 15th cafe will provide an overview of the current state of our petascale computing world and the how it’s possible exascale computing will be reached by the end of this decade. Beyond 2020, Infinite Computing for all is a distinct possibility.
Speaker: Gerald Thurman, Computer/math Instructor, Scottsdale Community College
No prerequisite knowledge is required to attend this cafe.
The Eureka Loft is located at the Scottsdale Public Library—Civic Center Library. Address: 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale, AZ 85251
