Blockchain Technology to Power Next Generation Distributed Supercomputers
Supercomputers are very highly and dazzling speeds in order to advance research in aerospace ,fundamental physics and cosmology,science climate,genomics and medicine,and supercomputers are ultrahigh performance machines.
Supercomputing research in the U.S. recieved a boost with the N.S.C.I ,which was introduced in 2015 to advance “exascale” supercomputers capable of performing a quintillion operations a second which is 30 times faster than todays any fastest Computers,or 1 exaflop,by 2025.Of course other countries,notably including china,have similarly well funded plans.
There is much truth in the perception of supercomputers as expensive toys that on;ly major GOV. and global corporation can afford.This the idea of pay as you go massivly districuted cloud supercomputing. and the blockchain technology that powers Bitcoin could have an inmportant role to play.
The distribution of supercomputing is expensively suitable 4 those demanding computting problems that are amenable to massive parallezation ,splitting it a massive problems into many smaller task that can be farmed out easyly a distributed network.
Volunteer citizen scientists are scontributed their own computing resources to BOINC projects for karma points and the satisfaction of contributing to imp. causes.It was the new crowdsourced supercomputing paradigm can achive critical mass only onces viable ways to financially rewards the participants are introduced.
It’s worth nothing that BTC provided a spectacular ademonstration that the general masses wil flock to the weirdest ideas proposede by scientist and social sctivists ,only if they can make some money in the process.
Now about distribution of networks,it was distributes network of computers managed by blockchain and smartm contracts can create a shared economy where anyone with a computers can borrow idle computing power and make a side income .The P2P nature of the blockchain and distributed ledgers will also help move computation closer to where the data is being generated.
Because of the blockchain allows for a decentralized infrastructure,it can bring the data closer to thier consumers and producers,a distributed cloud computing platform,”whereas with centralized cloud computing data centres tend to be located in remote areas.
In fact,while contributors of computing power are unlikely to make more than pocket change by offering their spacres computing power,blockchain based distributed cloud supercomputing cloud create interesting opportunities for operators based close to the data sources.
