Has China Surpassed the U.S. in Supercomputing?

Dona Crawford, Associate Director of Computation, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Supercomputers are the fastest, highest functioning computers. They can perform long, complex calculations and simulations for things like weather forecasting or creating massive models of the universe. With China's new, faster-than-ever supercomputer installation, the media has said that China has surpassed America in supercomputers. Crawford, who has more than 30 years of experience leading high-performance computing projects, will discuss the state of supercomputing in both China and the United States.
