COSMOS BRIEFING - Supercomputing & Big Data, What does it really mean for business in Australia?
Think of a computing process underpinned by masses of complex data – such as modelling planet-wide shifts in climate, or simulating the detonation of an atomic bomb. The process is known as supercomputing, and it’s run on a powerful system working at its maximum potential performance – a supercomputer.
Typical supercomputing applications include weather forecasting, resources exploration and climate research. More recently they’ve been employed on multiple fronts during the COVID pandemic. They’re the big analysis machines we turn to in order consider the world’s, and science’s, very big questions.
