High-performance computing (HPC) is the use of super computers and parallel processing techniques for solving complex computational problems. HPC technology focuses on developing parallel processing algorithms and systems by incorporating both administration and parallel computational techniques.
Dr. Craig Tanis's work fits into the use of super computers and parallel processing techniques for solving computational problems. His main research involves performance portability and is interested in distributed deep learning and video processing. Dr. Tanis uses the resources given at the SimCenter for his development and testing and tries to spend most of his week at the Center. Currently, Dr. Tanis is continuing his research on the FUNSAFE project, and is encouraging more student involvement with his research.
