Computer experts from around the world are meeting this week in New Orleans for the annual Supercomputing Conference, or SC14.
This year, the conference has a clear focus: HPC matters. HPC is high performance computing, which organizers say is “making the world better” through innovation.
Wilfred Pinfold is the HPC matters chair. He says supercomputers can help solve problems in health care and finance, and in issues important to New Orleaneans — like weather prediction and climate modeling.
