The Office of Research and Engagement is hosting a visit by Dr. Jeffrey Nichols, associate laboratory director for Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Computing and Computational Sciences.
The new Summit supercomputer at Oak Ridge provides unprecedented opportunity to perform modeling and simulation and artificial intelligence at a scale that is an order of magnitude greater than prior supercomputer systems.
Dr. Nichols will discuss the technologies used in Summit, and how supercomputers have changed the way science is conducted in the national lab complex. He will give examples of how integrating supercomputers, artificial intelligence, experiments, and new theories help to solve the nation’s largest science problems.
Nichols’ presentation is open to faculty, staff, undergraduate, and graduate students. Those interested in attending his presentation can register here.
When: Thursday, April 18, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: 169 Student Union
