Microprocessors and Line Spacing: The End of an Era
Moore’s law has been an important foundation of modern computing, but is likely to end due to “line spacing” constraints on circuits, absent a leap-ahead technology such as quantum or organic computing.
Advanced Modeling and Simulation: Transforming the Ways We Understand How the World Works
Advanced modeling and simulation, enabled by high performance computing, is revealing previously unknowable physical behaviors and is changing the ways we think about the cars, airplanes, pharmaceuticals, energy and other things that are part of our everyday life.
National Labs and the Engine of American Innovation
National Laboratories are little-known jewels that have powered American innovation since the early 20th century, providing lessons and best practices in research and technology investment that are applicable to both the public and private sector.
The Great Divide: Meeting the Challenges of Our Future Workforce
The United States is in the midst of a generation-long structural shift in labor, productivity, jobs, and pay, which is set to accelerate with the increasing adoption of advanced robotics and machine learning technologies. Proactive solutions are needed at the business, community, state, and national level to ensure we have the tools needed to remain competitive.
Quantum Mechanics and the Next Revolution in Computing
With quantum computing, we are entering a new era of how we think about computing. This is similar to the early days of classic computing, where technology enabled entirely new types of problem-solving.
