It’s rare in supercomputing to discover a paper that’s both insightful and amusing, but a distributed team led by Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka from RIKEN has managed to produce one.
“Myths and Legends in High Performance Computing” tackles the many angles of hype flying around HPC, from challenging the role AI and quantum computing might play in future large-scale systems, to questioning the role specialization of hardware might have in shaping next-gen supercomputing.
We sat down with Dr. Matsuoka and co-authors to pick apart some of the most pressing myths and legends. You can read them all in the recently published paper here.
Our thanks to the authors for taking time to hop on the line and lighten up without leaving these issues unexplored.
