Our field of application

“HPC is a major technology for scientists (astrophysicists, climatologists, epidemiologists, biologists, geologists, etc.) and industrial engineers alike”, explains Bérenger Bramas, researcher at the Inria Nancy – Grand Est center and pilot of the Texas research program in a recent article before adding: “Some simulations, for example in meteorology, require significant, even extraordinary, computing power. They can only be carried out on supercomputers, which are capable of performing several million billion computing operations per second”.

The need for computing and the multiplication of digital uses is generating very strong growth in the volume of data in circulation. It is the way in which data is processed that enables research to move forward. Digital computing has enabled revolutionary scientific discoveries. It generates game-changing innovations. Finally, it improves the quality of life of billions of people around the world. Today, it’s fair to say that almost nothing seems to escape digital computing and the mathematical models invented to model our world. Applications range from engineering and life sciences to finance, meteorology, astrophysics, geology, cinema and video games.

Convergence of HPC and AI

The HPC market is undergoing profound change. Research and analysis all point to a convergence between artificial intelligence and high-performance computing. It acts as a guideline for market growth. The rollout of 5G, the Internet of Things, Big Data and the digital economy are generating a huge need for computing power. And the fields of application are vast.

Wider use of digital technologies throughout the economy ans society



Digital and ecology goals

Make the growth in computing requirements compatible with environmental concerns

The market must meet user requirements while respecting environmental contingencies.

High-density data center infrastructures must be eco-efficient in order to limit their carbon footprint and energy cost.

Towards the Smart City

Today, new methods are being put in place to collect phenomenal quantities of data via sensor arrays distributed throughout cities. Different in nature and format, they come together in digital simulation systems combining HPC and AI. Today, the Smart City is developing to provide new services to citizens. It has a dual objective: to better understand the territory and to anticipate phenomena.

There are many possible uses. For example, they affect the city’s public services: transport, waste collection, energy and water management, security, health, education, etc. They also include environmental analysis, air quality and climate risk assessment.
