"To out-compete is to out-compute"
The Alliance for Transformational Computing (ATC) seeks to enable and expand the ethical and secure use of current computational capabilities, while continuing to advocate for investment in the leading edge of computing in concert with our allies globally.
Enabling and expanding the ethical and secure use of current computational capabilities: The ATC proposes to democratize the use of existing advanced computing tools and technologies developed for National missions such as the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) to further leverage these capabilities to accelerate and expand U.S. innovation geographically and demographically. Previous Council efforts demonstrated the economic development potential of advanced computing clusters across the country. As the tools and technologies for dual-use become more pervasive, the need for focus on public private partnerships together with ethical and security considerations needs to be taken into greater account to foster a vibrant ecosystem.
Advocacy for transformational computing in concert with global allies: The ATC will advocate at the technological frontiers to maintain U.S. leadership in the next generation of transformation computing and its applications. While the United States remains the world leader in supercomputing with distinctive focus on advanced scientific computing, China has made significant progress on developing a strategic capability—including national supercomputing centers—to drive economic growth and industry transformation. Further, U.S. leadership in transformation computing is critical to addressing the following:

High Performance Computing Industry Success Stories
While priorities have evolved with technology, the revolution of High Performance Computing was essential in driving innovation forward. The Council conducted a number of case studies and reports that showcase the competitive benefits achieved from modeling and simulation with HPC. The studies and reports discuss problems organizations faced and the solutions they reached using their own HPC resources or through partnerships with government-funded facilities and programs across the country. In each instance, these organizations advanced their R&D, accelerated innovation, created important new knowledge and shortened time-to-market for new products—all essential to business success in the face of global competition. Each organization also indicated significant cost savings and revenue enhancement. These advancements are fundamental building blocks on which new technology is created today.
