The science fiction of a generation ago predicted a future in which humans were replaced by the reasoning might of a supercomputer. But in an unexpected twist of events, it appears the it is the supercomputer’s main output—scientific simulations—that could be replaced by an even higher order of intelligence.
While we will always need supercomputing hardware, the vast field of scientific computing, or high performance computing, could also be in the crosshairs for disruptive change, altering the future prospects for scientific code developers, but opening new doors in more energy-efficient, finer-grained scientific discovery. With code that can write itself based …Read more
