GEMS Workshop: Superheroes vs. Supercomputers with Professor Jeho Park of Claremont McKenna College

February 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

TOPIC: Superheroes vs. Supercomputers

Superheroes like Wonder Woman, Black Panther, Superman, and Captain Marvel, just to name a few, all have “super” power and they save the world from “super”-villains. Well, just one catch–they are not real. In our real world, there are computers built for super power to save the (real) world. In this talk, you will be introduced to “super”computers built to defeat “super”villains (i.e., super difficult problems). To understand supercomputing, you will learn some (or all) of the following exciting terms and theories (which are not commonly discussed in high school classrooms): cluster, GPU, parallel processing, decomposition, shared memory, distributed memory, Amdahl’s law, big data, artificial intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, and data science.

WHAT IS GEMS:

The Gateway to Exploring Mathematics program (GEMS) is a series of workshops that helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students in mathematics and science
