  • Envisioning how the use of High Performance Computing can underpin industrial development
  • Investing £4 million in UK Space Agency’s nanosatellites to track ships, planes and weather in some of the world’s most remote regions
  • Creating the ‘Space as a Service’ to go from mission technical architecture to customer data/service verification, along with the ongoing development of critical enabling technologies
  • Outlining further applications of HPC and quantum technologies in other industries

  • Rolling out the adoption of the European Cloud Initiative to respond to the main challenges of realising the Digital Single Market (DSM)
  • Developing a new unit “High Performance Computing & Quantum Technology” to support research into exascale computing technologies and HPC
  • Reforming the “eInfrastructure & Science Cloud” to refocus its activities on the European Cloud Initiative with emphasis on its key components Data Infrastructure and Open Science
  • Ensuring Open access to scientific information by piloting Horizon 2020 to extend and mainstream open access to research data

  • Launching the National Quantum Technology Programme to drive development in quantum imaging, sensing, communications and computing applications
  • Achieving quantum interference in the laboratory to drive developments in engineering and nanoscience
  • Standardising components and subcomponents that are easy to engineer to be used in a variety of applications
  • Quantum Safe Encryption: Discussing how the advances in quantum computing will impact data encryption and addressing the need for future proofing data encryptio

  • HPC is providing neuroscientists with new computational models and tools to map, analyse and understand the human brain
  • Managing the Human Brain Project, an EU-funded FET Flagship initiative
  • Envisioning how HPC and supercomputing can drive advancements in personalised health and medicine

  • Investing £97m in a new supercomputer building to enable forecast updates every hour and provide very high detail weather information for precise geographical areas
  • Delivering £2bn of benefits to the UK economy by squaring HPC capability with the latest advances in hardware, software and infrastructure
  • Opening the potential for higher resolution models, which would have the ability to pinpoint more detail for small scale, high-impact weather
  • Drawing data from 4,500 observational sources, including 16 operational radar and 330 monitoring stations in the UK, plus 19 satellites, and from other national meteorological services around the world

  • The car industry is developing fast, competition is becoming more fierce by the day, and new products are released at a faster rate
  • These growing car design requirements challenge the car industry’s existing ICT infrastructure, CAE, and other computing assisted applications, promoting the fast, digital transformation of the industry.
  • HPC and Quantum offer several opportunities for car manufacturers to improve all stages of the manufacturing process. Hear how the HPC can transform:
    • Design
    • Safety
    • Traffic Optimisation
    • Battery Life

  • Launching the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Data Analytics in October, to explore the realm of ‘big data’ and HPC in the UK to help both the private and public sectors
  • Highlighting the importance of ‘big data’, with it set to contribute £20 billion of benefit for central government over five years
  • Breaking down Government departmental silos and improving the quality of data used by the Government
  • Tapping into the expected 157,000 additional jobs and £241 billion gain to UK economy from big data by 202

  • This multi-disciplinary facility will provide large-scale data simulation and high-performance data analytics designed to enable advances in material science, computational chemistry, computational engineering and health informatics

  • Making best use of Big Data analytics, data science and machine learning to extract insights and drive service transformation
  • Enhancing levels of computer sophistication to run algorithms that can help enhance the veracity of information
