CEA vision for exascale computing
By Jacques-Charles Lafoucriere, Chef de projet Informatique, CEA

Historically High performance computing centres were used for scientific numerical simulations. Today a wider range of applications require HPC compute power: data analytics, data science, artificial intelligence,... With the evolution of the usage, HPC centers had to evolved.

This talk will provide CEA vision on the evolutio of computer center architecture to fulfill the needs of scientific communities and industrials.
