Welcome to techUK's Future of Compute Week 2022

During this week techUK will be sharing industry-led insights on what unlocking the potential of large-scale compute (HPC, exascale and other supercomputing infrastructure) could mean for the UK’s society and economy.

Access to advanced compute - the ability to process data at scale and solve complex problems at speed, whether through high-performance computing (HPC) or other large-scale compute (LSC) - is essential to R&D in a range of sectors, including healthcare and drug discovery, engineering and manufacturing, financial services and risk analysis, particle physics, materials science and more.
During this week we will deep-dive into a number of themes that, if addressed, could develop our large scale compute infrastructure to support the UK’s ambitions as a science and technology superpower.
Below you can read the blogs published on each day. Share your thoughts and views on how HPC will transform the UK economy by using the hashtag #FutureofCompute and tagging @techUK on twitter and LinkedIn.
