Alan Edelman, Professor of Applied Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Member of MIT's Computer Science & AI Laboratory, will talk about "The Power of Language" for High Performance Computing.
Alan Edelman is the Leader of the JuliaLab and Applied Computing Group at MIT and cofounder of Julia Computing Inc. He works on numerical linear algebra, random matrix theory and parallel computing. He is a fellow of SIAM, IEEE, and the American Mathematial Society. He has won numerous prizes for his research, most recently in 2019 the Fernbach Prize from IEEE for innovation in high performance computing.
Julia is now being used for high performance computing for the important problems of today including climate change and Covid-19. Alan Edelman will describe how language is making all the difference.
