Exascaling Nuclear Innovation

BIDS Data Science Lecture Series | February 19, 2016 | 1:10-2:30 p.m. | 190 Doe Library, UC Berkeley Speaker: Rachel Slaybaugh, Assistant Professor, Nuclear Engineering There is a growing need for innovation in nuclear detection, nuclear security and nonproliferation, and nuclear energy to meet our goals in global security, economic competitiveness, and environmental responsibility. There are incredible opportunities for progress in these important areas enabled by exascale computing and data analysis; however, we need to discover how to effectively capitalize on these opportunities. This talk will touch upon three major challenges: performing computations on exascale architectures effectively and reproducibly, having sufficiently accurate data for the highly resolved solutions we need, and performing analysis on such large datasets efficiently.
