PHYGITAL MEETING
The impacts of High Performance Computing (HPC) and the centrality for the positioning of Emilia-Romagna as a reference Hub in Europe for research and development on Big Data

Savoia Hotel Regency Via del Pilastro, 2 - 40127 BOLOGNA

One of the most relevant technological challenges towards the assertion of geopolitical supremacy is the possession of the greatest computational capacity.
This will be even more true in the new post-Covid-19 future, where economies will have shifted toward ever greater digitization than in the past.
Future societies will have to be much more attentive to the health of their citizens and the preservation of the environment, citizens will require increasingly personalized services and this will require international networks for the detection, analysis and control of data that will continue to be generated in their unstoppable and exponential growth.
In this framework, the main technological frontier of computational capacity is High Performance Computing (HPC), that is what is achieved when a series of high-end, high-powered servers, interconnected to form a single system, is used to solve complex problems in useful time, using parallel computing methodologies.
Emilia-Romagna today has the opportunity to leverage the technological and digital expertise that is being consolidated in the territory, putting it in synergy with the skills developed in the areas of specialization of the Region, to create an attractive ecosystem, capable of competing at an international level, attracting talent, capital and businesses and thus acting as a driving force to position Italy as a center of reference in Europe and the world for the development and use of the most advanced computational technologies.
