DOE Looks to Dongarra for Input on Computing Advances

Dongarra

The US Department of Energy recently released a report through its Office of Science detailing the top ten research challenges in reaching the level of exascale computing, once again calling on Jack Dongarra for input. Dongarra, a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, director of the Innovative Computing Laboratory and one of five National Academy of Engineering members at UT, has long been at the forefront of exascale computing, or computing at roughly a thousand times the capability of recent supercomputers.

The Department of Energy recently released a report co-chaired by UT Distinguished Professor Jack Dongarra in which he stresses the importance of prioritizing research into high-end mathematics to help keep the United States on the cutting edge of computing.

Professor Receives High Honor for Supercomputing Accomplishments

Jack Dongarra, distinguished professor of computer science in the College of Engineering, is being honored for his leadership in high performance computing. He will receive the Association for Computing Machinery-Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers Computer Society Ken Kennedy Award on November 19 in Denver at SC13, the International Conference on High Performance Computing.

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.

Professor Jack Dongarra Announces New Supercomputer Benchmark

The way the power of supercomputers is measured is about to change. Since 1993, Jack Dongarra, distinguished professor of computer science at UT has led the ranking of the world’s top 500 supercomputers. The much-celebrated bi-annual TOP500 list is compiled using Dongarra’s benchmark system, called Linpack. But Dongarra says Linpack hasn’t kept pace with supercomputing needs and must be updated.
