Where Is HPC Headed?

The future of high performance computing is uncertain, with a number of forces causing changes to the ecosystem. These include the slowing and end of CMOS scaling, the rise of Big Data and machine learning applications, and the increasing heterogeneity in HPC architectures. This panel will explore these challenges and provide insight into how future HPC will cope with (or take advantage of) these trends.
