The Exascale Scientific Computing Landscape: Challenges and Opportunities.

Computing has become an essential enabling and empowering component across all of science. In particular, large-scale computing is playing an ever-increasing role in theory and modeling and in data collection and analysis, as well as accounting for the increasing influence of machine learning. Early exascale systems are harbingers of a future computing roadmap that promises major leaps in capability, but one that poses significant challenges that will need to be faced by the scientific community. In this talk I will survey some of the history, current trends, and indications of near-future directions in scientific computing, focusing on a subset of examples that lie at the interface of high-performance computing, large data sets, and machine learning.
