Roche 'Talks Exascale' with the ECP

Kenny Roche, a scientist with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s High Performance Computing Group and the Nuclear Theory Group in the University of Washington’s Department of Physics, was the subject of a recent episode of the Exascale Computing Project’s Let’s Talk Exascale podcast, where he discussed his work as the project lead for the “Application Assessment” project.

In the discussion, Roche touched on how code evaluations and independent benchmarking results will provide a better view of how things are performing across the entire exascale ecosystem while noting the effort is not necessarily an easy one.

“The measure of success would be how many of the ECP applications we’re able to conduct a careful evaluation in coordination with their application development effort,” he says during the interview. “That would include benchmarking their codes on relevant problems on relevant computer systems.”

About ECP
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project is responsible for developing the strategy, aligning the resources, and conducting the R&D necessary to achieve the nation’s imperative of delivering exascale computing by 2021. ECP’s mission is to ensure all the necessary pieces are in place for the first exascale systems—an ecosystem that includes mission critical applications, software stack, hardware architecture, advanced system engineering and hardware components to enable fully functional, capable exascale computing environments critical to national security, scientific discovery, and a strong U.S. economy.

The ECP is a collaborative project of two U.S. Department of Energy organizations, the Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
