HPCwire: Dr. Orbach talked about the growing importance of multidisciplinary HPC research. What's the Council's view on this?
Ms. Wince-Smith: This ties back to the Council's view on 21st-century innovation, and how different today's research is from the way research was done 10 to 20 years ago, when the primary approach was individuals working in centralized research facilities and in sharply demarcated disciplines. Today's biggest insights are coming from the fusion of knowledge from different fields, and from applying HPC to these multidisciplinary problems. For studying disease pathways through the body, for example, knowledge is needed about physics, chemistry, biology and in some cases also nanotechnology. HPC is going to accelerate the demonstration and implementation of multidisciplinary science, including within business and industrial settings.
