Jack Wells, director of science at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, discusses the new Summit supercomputer, and the work it will be performing for the Department of Energy.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is officially home to the world’s fastest supercomputer. The Summit system is capable of over 143 petaflops, or 143 quadrillion operations per second. Jack Wells, director of science at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, says that with this enormous amount of computing power, Oak Ridge can do more than ever.

“Now on Summit, we are seeing new types of learning and data applications that just didn’t happen before. There’s an expansion of the aperture in the application space we are seeing. There’s also a convergence in the individual applications. Both AI techniques and modeling and simulation techniques are happening within the same task,” Wells said.
