New report calls for increased access to HPC

Posted on February 17, 2021

A new assessment from the Center for Data Innovation finds that current levels of access to high performance computing resources is impeding the country’s ability to compete, innovate or insert the benefits of artificial intelligence into the nation’s defense.

These and other findings are part of the center’s new report, “How the United States Can Increase Access to Supercomputing.”

The Center for Data Innovation called on Congress to increase total NSF investment in HPC infrastructure to at least $500 million per year and boost total DOE funding in HPC infrastructure to at least $1.5 billion per year. It also recommends the NSF should analyze where current awards are going, and prioritize funding for states conducting high levels of artificial intelligence research but which have low levels of HPC availability.

The report also says emphasis should be placed on key areas including:

  • providing HPC access to under-represented groups such as women and minorities
  • building a workforce with HPC training
  • providing access to cloud-based HPC resources
