Researcher emeritus Gordon Bell spoke at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory this week and joked that when it comes to the security badge requirements for getting on site, "nothing has changed since my first visit in 1961."
But when it comes to high performance computing at LLNL, much has changed thanks to the computing technology revolution Bell helped bring about. Bell's presentation, “The Supercomputer Class Evolution: A Personal Perspective,” was a PowerPoint journey through time from LLNL's earliest supercomputing systems in the early 60s to today's era of massively parallel computing systems.
