Neil Green, president of Intelâ€™s federal business, has said the U.S. government has launched programs that seek to leverage the use of high-performance computing platforms.
Green wrote in an FCW opinion piece published Tuesday that President Barack Obamaâ€™s National Strategic Computing Initiative and the Cancer Moonshot program are some of the efforts that focus on the use of HPC tools and promote partnerships between industry and government.
â€œHPC is advancing how health care is delivered by bringing technology and software innovations to bear on accelerating cancer research,â€ Green said of the Cancer Moonshot initiative.
Green also cited the OpenHPC program, which he says works to facilitate collaboration among industry players to help buildÂ an â€œend-to-end open-source software stack for HPC.â€
He noted that the OpenHPC effort supports one of the strategic objectives of NSCI to establish a â€œmore holistic approachâ€ in support of the development of a â€œnational HPC ecosystem.â€
