ACMD Seminar: Highlights from the Advanced Computing World: Exascale Roll Outs and Quantum Computing Developments

Bob Sorensen
Hyperion Research

Tuesday, August 31, 2021, 3:00 PM EDT (1:00 PM MDT)

A video of this talk is available to NIST staff in the Math channel on NISTube, which is accessible from the NIST internal home page.

Abstract: This presentation will give a quick tour of the status of soon to be introduced exascale class HPCs around the world as well as a discussion of evolving dynamics within the QC supplier and user base as well as related QC development efforts from a global perspective.

Bio: Bob Sorensen, Senior Vice President and Chief Analyst for Quantum Computing at Hyperion Research, drives research and consulting efforts in the United States, European, and Asian-Pacific markets for technical servers, supercomputers, clouds, quantum computing and high performance data analysis. Bob is the lead analyst for Hyperion Research’s quantum computing program that looks at global R&D, technology, industry, and government trends in the quantum, computing sector. His areas of expertise include analysis of HPC hardware, architectures, interconnects, HPC benchmarking and performance analysis, and assessments of emerging and disruptive technology trends in the HPC and IT sector writ large. Bob holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rochester and a master’s degree in computer science from the George Washington University, and he strongly prefers C over Python.

Note: This talk will be recorded to provide access to NIST staff and associates who could not be present to the time of the seminar. The recording will be made available in the Math channel on NISTube, which is accessible only on the NIST internal network.
