About the Event

Information technology and applied science engineering play an essential role in society, from improving decision-making to advancing humanity’s knowledge of the world and the universe. Supercomputing, or high-performance computing (HPC), enables scientists and engineers to push the edge of what is possible for US science and innovation. Using HPC-based modeling and simulation, they are able to study systems that otherwise would be impractical or impossible to investigate in the real world due to their complexity, size, or fleeting nature, or the danger they pose.

Applying the leading-edge capabilities of HPC-based modeling and simulation is essential to the execution of DOE missions in science and engineering and to DOE’s responsibility for stewardship of the nation’s nuclear stockpile. Over the past several decades, sustained technology investment has supported the development of increasingly powerful HPC systems, resulting in leadership status for the United States as well as substantial economic, energy, and national security benefits. But today, as other nations increase their investments in HPC, global competitiveness is on the rise.

To maintain leadership and to address future challenges in economic impact areas and threats to security, the United States is making a strategic move in HPC—a grand convergence of advances in codesign, modeling and simulation, data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The success of this convergence hinges on achieving exascale, the next leap forward in computing.

The exponential increase in memory, storage, and compute power made possible by exascale systems will drive breakthroughs in energy production, storage, and transmission; materials science; additive manufacturing; chemical design; artificial intelligence and machine learning; cancer research and treatment; earthquake risk assessment; and many other areas.

With exascale computing, scientists and engineers will be able to solve problems that previously were out of reach, and the effects on the lives of the American people and the world will be profound.

Featured Speakers

David Vellante

Co-host at theCUBE
David Vellante is co-founder and CEO of SiliconANGLE Media, Inc., a digital-first media and content company. We are re-imagining how information is created and shared. In 2006, Vellante envisioned a peer-based, research model and co-founded The Wikibon Project, the world’s first open tech research community focused on digital transformation, the data economy, cloud and modern infrastructure. Dave is a long-time tech industry analyst, entrepreneur, writer and speaker. He is co-host of theCUBE – “The ESPN of Tech” - and manages SiliconANGLE Media with his business partner John Furrier. He is also a co-founder of theCUBE Network and CrowdChat, two startups based in Palo Alto, CA. Prior to these exploits Dave ran a CIO consultancy and spent a decade growing and managing IDC’s Enterprise Group, the firm’s largest and most profitable business. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife and four children where he has served as the President of his town's local "Kiddie Sports" association. Dave holds a B.S. in Applied Mathematics from Union College.

Mark Fernandez

Principal Investigator at Spaceborne Computer-2
Dr. Fernandez is currently the Principal Investigator for the Spaceborne Computer-2 project, reporting to the GM and SVP of HPC at HPE. His duties have included completion of the original Spaceborne Computer (SBC) experiment as Payload Developer for Software. Spaceborne Computer exceeded its mission life while also meeting all of its objectives. SBC demonstrated that modern, unmodified Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) computer systems could be used in space exploration to address scientific and engineering computational needs.
More importantly, Dr. Fernandez led the internal effort to obtain executive approval for the follow-on Spaceborne Computer-2 (SBC-2), to secure internal funding for the SBC-2 experiment; to assemble the virtual Team required for this 2 year mission; and to begin to track this new market.
In addition, Dr. Fernandez remains a Payload Developer for Software for SBC-2 and leads the software development Team which continues the advanced development of the “HARDening with SOFTware” architecture.
Dr. Fernandez earned his Ph.D. in Scientific Computing from the University of Southern Mississippi, his M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Southern Mississippi and B.S. degrees in Chemistry and Mathematics from Spring Hill College.
