The Aurora Supercomputer

Michael E. Papka, a professor in UIC’s computer science department, stands with the Aurora supercomputer at Argonne National Laboratory. When the Aurora supercomputer is complete and goes online, it will be among the United States’ most powerful exascale machines used for research. The supercomputer, sponsored by the United States Department of Energy and designed by Intel and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, gives scientists a new tool for research initiatives including climate change modeling, cancer drug discovery, nuclear fusion, and cosmology.
