Imprecise Computational Science: Closing Gaps, Forming Alloys

Computing is revolutionizing our intellectual capacity to tackle complex problems. At the same time, the energy demands of computers are soaring while vast amounts of data are challenging the classical methods of computational model building. In this lecture, Koumoutsakos will explain how to address these challenges by focusing on fundamental computing patterns: multiscale modeling, uncertainty quantification, and their interfaces. Through his research, Koumoutsakos is exploring how these interfaces can be translated into algorithms for computers equipped with a range of processor accuracies.
