Huang started by saying that “Supercomputing technology is in the process of extending well beyond supercomputing itself”. He foresees the same GPU tech behind the latest growing trend in supercomputers, powering cloud computing, complex simulation and visualisation, to become integral to emerging growth industries like autonomous cars and personal robot assistants. Nvidia’s CEO claimed that the use of GPU accelerators in supercomputers in the top500 list is growing nearly 50…
