Supercomputers Battle Corona

The conversation today begins with discussing how long it will take until Henry moves into his rammed earth Los Cruces bunker. For those of you keeping track at home, the correct answer was 41 days at the time of taping, which, by the time the podcast is out will probably be “a couple of weeks ago”.

We quickly move on to discussing the Corona Virus, which started sharing the headlines with its handiwork COVID-19. What else is anyone talking about these days, right? We discuss how the supercomputing community has joined the fight and the impact on the battle against the virus.

We do our best to keep the conversation light, knowing that everyone out there is suffering from the virus – it’s the one thing we all have in common these days. We hope you enjoy the episode.

Catch of the Week:

Henry:  Hackers target medical field during Covid19 crisis, one of the crappiest things we’ve heard in a long time.

Shahin:  Tells us about a great paper title, “Software Defined Microarchitecture An Arguably Terrible Idea, but Certainly not the Worst Idea” as found on InsideHPC.

Jessie:  Discusses how Globus is offering free access for anyone working on the Covid19 Virus. Great job, Globus, way to pitch in.
