Towards exascale Visualization

A key goal of the HBP is to develop a capability for the analysis and visualisation of exascale data sets and for the steering of simulations. With this capability, supercomputers will act as an interactive scientific instrument, providing researchers with visual feedback and allowing them to control simulations while they are executing on a exascale computers. A exascale computer will produce exabytes of data. It is not expected that we will be able to store such an enormous amount of data for later exploration. In fact, it is expected that the cost of memory to floating point operations will grow, a trend that will make necessary the in situ analysis of simulation data. In situ means essentially that the analysis is done on the data as it is generated, since making a copy to work on it in a completely asynchronous way is extremely costly. This would allow to steer the simulation in close to real time, thus turning a supercomputer in an interactive instrument able to probe the structure and behaviour of the human brain. However, to meet this challenge, current visualization paradigms have to be revisited and the supporting hardware and software designed accordingly. This talk will explore the challenges that have to be met to make this goal a reality.
