Supercomputers play a crucial role in sectors like fundamental research, biomedicine, precision medicine, healthcare, built environment, climate change & monitoring, offshore & marine, construction & design, automotive technologies, fintech, computational law and robotics.

Examples of HPC application areas and case studies will help give you a better grasp of how you can apply HPC in your work.

HPC resources are beneficial in a variety of ways and in a number of different sectors. It enables research of the highest computational complexity and data-intensiveness to be completed in shorter time spans. It enables areas like advanced modelling & simulation, artificial intelligence, machine learning and Big Data analytics for fields like genomics, biomolecular modelling, advanced manufacturing and design, digital twin technologies, weather forecasting, climate research and quantum computing.

NSCC Singapore was established in 2015 and manages Singapore’s first national petascale facility with available high performance computing (HPC) resources. As a National Research Infrastructure funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF), we support the HPC research needs of the public and private sectors, including research institutes, institutes of higher learning (IHLs), government agencies and companies.
