Professor Helps Design Software for the Next Generation of Supercomputer

Jack Dongarra, distinguished professor of computer science at UT is designing software that will be critical in making the next generation of supercomputers operational.

For decades, supercomputers have been tackling the world’s most pressing challenges, from sequencing the human genome to predicting climate changes. But their power is limited and thus, so is our knowledge.

The next generation of supercomputers, called exascale (a quintillion floating point operations per second), holds promise for solving some of the most demanding problems in numerical modeling. But as scientists worldwide, including Dongarra, work to develop the hardware for these machines, the software to run them remains elusive.
