In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team hosts Dan’s daughter Elizabeth. How did Dan get this way? We’re on a mission to find out even as Elizabeth complains of the early onset of Curmudgeon’s Syndrome. Somehow she has turned out well, though, and has a great gig with an Oil company in Washington, D.C., so we also get her take on what is going on in the Nation’s capital.
After that, we do our Catch of the Week:
- Car charging stations are starting to outnumber gas stations in places like California and Manhattan. Rich already enjoys driving an electric Fiat 500e thanks to state incentives and a highly-subsidized industry.
- Tokyo Tech announced details of their pending Tsubame3.0 Supercomputer powered by Nvidia’s Pascal GPUs. The machine will be based on the SGI ICE XA platform.
- Shahin and Henry just came back from the RSA Security Conference. While stories of Hacker breaches are in the headlines every day, Shahin is alarmed that every company sounds the same when you go talk to them in their booths.
