Results of the GRI workshop on high-performance computing and communications. Final report, June 15-16, 1993
The report presents results of a Gas Research Institute workshop held to explore gas industry opportunities arising from advances in high-performance computing and communications (HPCC) and related technologies. The workshop teamed almost 30 GRI managers and HPCC experts from several research organizations. In addition to identified near-term applications of supercomputing and visualization, HPCC is found to have many potential future applications. Advances in artificial intelligence, advanced workstations, portable 'notebook' computers, personal digital assistants (handheld fax/phone/computer), high-speed networks, microprocessor-based actuators and sensors, and associated software will facilitate new ways of conducting business and performing research.
