The convergence of supercomputing and AI in a Post-Moore’s Law World The world is facing many very large challenges in many fields, including energy, climate, and biology. High-performance computing can help provide the answers through large-scale simulation, but ground-breaking simulations are incredibly computationally expensive. Unfortunately, Moore law is slowly stopping and there...
