Dr. Shankar is the Director of the Compute and Data Environment for Science (CADES) and the Group Leader of the Advanced Data and Workflow group in the National Center for Computational Science at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research emphasizes the interdisciplinary bridge between computer science and large-scale scientific discovery campaigns that rely on scalable computing and data science.

Abstract:
Scientific Discovery and AI on the Summit Leadership Supercomputer
Scientific exploration at extreme scales is enabled by leadership-class supercomputing and data-driven discovery. The Summit Supercomputer in the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) is currently the fastest computing platform in the world topping the Top500 list in the recent published lists in June and November of 2018. We discuss how this leadership-computing capability enables simulation-driven and data-driven discovery in unprecedented ways through its innovative design and implementation. Through specific vignettes from scientific campaigns run on Summit, we highlight the opportunities that increasing scale and architectural flexibility afford us to perform converged simulation science and data analytics. We also explore future directions in scientific discovery as a coupling of scalable data-driven science, cross-facility workflows, and interwoven simulation and analytics.
