Abstract:

In the face of increasing competition from other market economies, the US needs to ramp up its ability to innovate and High Performance Computing HPC must be a key ingredient in Americas innovation capacity. The task ahead therefore must include broadening the use of HPC in US industry through collaborations in which more knowledgeable HPC users especially leading government users share their expertise and advanced computing resources with less-experienced and inexperienced private sector companies. We must move beyond todays islands of innovation by making access to HPC much easier and more pervasive. Leveraging these world-class assets to their fullest is critical if we are going to successfully harness Americas innovation capacity to drive future economic growth and industrial leadership. In todays high competitive global economy, the country that wants to outcompete must be able to out-compute. This report summarizes an initiative whose objective was to attempt to assure a path for realizing dual-use applications for next generation high performance computing.
