Nicole Hemsoth, HPC Wire, The Masters of Uncertainty, here.
According to Dr. Houman Owhadi and Dr. Clint Scovel, both from the California Institute of Technology, Bayesian methods are becoming more prevalent as high performance computing advances continue. In this special audio-based feature interview, we talk with both about what these methods will contribute to a number of research and enterprise endeavors, what computational requirements exist as we move toward more advanced questions, and how the field is evolving—and will continue to evolve with exascale (or even quantum) class systems.
