Convergence of HPC and Bigdata on Tianhe-2
Nowadays, advanced computing and visualizing tools are facilitating scientists and engineers to perform virtual experiments and analyze large-scale datasets. Computing-driven and Bigdata-driven scientific discovery has become a necessary approach in global environment change, life science, nano-materials, high energy physics and other fields. Furthermore, the fast increased computing requirements from economic and social development also call for the birth of the Exascale system. This talk will discuss the convergence of the HPC and Bigdata on Tianhe2 system.
Professor Yutong Lu is the Director of National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou, China. She is the professor in School of Computer Science, Sun Yat-sen University as well as in National University of Defense Technology (NUDT). She got her B.S, M.S, and PhD degrees from the NUDT. Her extensive research and development experience has spanned several generations of domestic supercomputers in China. Prof. Lu is deputy chief designer of Tianhe Project. She had won first class award and outstanding award of Chinese national science and technology progress in 2009 and 2014 respectively. She is leading several innovation projects on HPC and Bigdata supported by MOST, NSFC and Guangdong Province now. Her continuing research interests include parallel operating systems (OS), high-speed communication, large scale file system& data management, advanced programming environment & applications.
