Convergences of the Extremes: Computational Science meets Networked SensorsDavid Culler, ModeratorSC2000 PanelNovember 10, 2000
A New Frontier for SCxySC is not just about supercomputing, its where the latest wave of technology gets applied to real problems Louis Turcotte, gen. chair SC2000
SC has been riding the CMOS wave88-92: Rise of the killer micro93-99: Emergence of the killer networksingle chip CMOS networks of the CM-5 and Paragon now the heart of clusters, gigabit ethernet, ...
along with other emerging technologiesvisualization, haptics, ...Panel Goal: open your eyes to a new frontier
Where is CMOS going?Not just Moores lawMicro Electical Mechanical Systems (MEMS)rich array of sensors are becoming cheap and tiny Imagine, all sorts of chips that are connected to the physical world and to cyberspace!
We are seeing the first signs
Commonality at the ExtremesPushing performance of available resources to solve problemsPushing the technological edgeComplex applicationsPackaging, Power ManagementLong runningCommunication CriticalSimplicityHighly Parallel Programming / OperationFaults, Failures, Availability
Tapping Experience of SC CommunityExtensive instrumentation and measurement
Extensive sensor development and use
Wide-scale distributed computing
Vast, embedded data sets
Serious parallel Programming
Some of the OpportunitiesIntegrating measurement with real-time modelingComplete scientific data processing and analysisDistributed, integrated sensor networksComputational modeling applied to the technology itselfSensor technology applied to high performance systems management...
