Project Status: Active
Modern science is heavily reliant on very powerful computers and insights from very large data sets; thus, the drive for an exascale computer, currently scheduled for deployment by Calendar Year 2023. These computers will use a highly optimized von Neumann architecture; they will be built from complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) devices nearing their physical limitations; and they will consume significantly more power (by several orders of magnitude) than current supercomputers. Thus, this model will not likely be sustainable for post-exascale systems.
