Getting Up to Speed: The Future of Supercomputing
Supercomputers are very fast computers used to perform complex tasks such as assessing data on climate change, sequencing genomes, and analyzing intelligence data. This new report, from the National Academies, assesses the state of U.S. supercomputing capabilities and whether they satisfy federal government needs.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on November 8, 2004 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
