Key R&D programs for Exascale
EESI expertise and deep studies helps to build an Exascale computing capability in Europe and leads the way at a worldwide level in the transformation of society and industry.
Experts have investigated state-of-the-art of world development to detect disruptive technologies, cross cutting issues, numerical processing and software engineering. Such knowledge has enabled to build a gap analysis, provide orientations and monitoring of R&D actions and training.
Following its vision of a data centric approach, EESI2 has led the way toward exascale by funding and chairing an international initiative on Big Data, and issuing its recommendations.
EESI2 proposes 8 recommendations for R&D programs to implement efficient exascale applications and the development of supporting software environments:
5 absolutely critical programs:
- Ultra scalable algorithms,
- Big Data,
- High productivity programming models.
3 high priorities:
- Mini apps,
- Software Engineering Methods for High- Performance Computing
- Verification, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification.
At the end of EESI2, the new data centric approach give more recommentations related to the 3 pillars for exascale.
