The Icelandic High-Performance Computing (IHPC) activities are increasing in academia and industry that also includes related areas such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Data Analytics, and Data Sciences. As a result, the IHPC community members created Icelandic Simulation and Data Labs (SDLs), including academic and industrial partners. They form together in a bottom-up fashion the IHPC National Competence Center for HPC & AI in Iceland partly funded by the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking EuroCC project.
This presentation introduces the High-Performance and Disruptive Computing in Remote Sensing (HDCRS) Working Group (WG) to the to the Icelandic HPC Community. HDCRS was recently established under the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) Earth Science Informatics (ESI) Technical Committee (TC) to connect a community of interdisciplinary researchers in Remote Sensing (RS) who are specialized on advanced computing technologies, parallel programming models and scalable algorithms. HDCRS focuses on three major research topics in the context of RS: (1) Supercomputing and Distributed Computing, (2) Specialized Hardware Computing and (3) Quantum Computing (QC).
