Advancing the Frontiers of Computing with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Advancing the Frontiers of Computing with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
WhenMonday, Nov. 6, 2017, 6 – 7 p.m.

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory transforms the world through courageous discovery and innovation.  As a U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory, PNNL pushes the frontiers of science and addresses some of the nation’s most challenging problems in energy, the environment, and national security.  Computing is essential to all of PNNL’s missions, and PNNL’s several hundred computer scientists and engineers work together to advance the foundations of computer science, apply these advances to real-world problems, and use those results to inspire the next generation of research endeavors. This talk will review recent highlights from across the Laboratory’s computing portfolio – spanning data science, cyber security, visualization and human-computer interaction, high-performance computing, and software engineering – and how these advances are used to secure critical infrastructures, create the future power grid, extract intelligence from massive volumes of streaming data, and invent knowledge discovery environments that combine human and machine intelligence in new ways. PNNL partners extensively with other labs, academia, and industry in its research, development and deployment activities and we will also discuss ways to work with PNNL on cutting-edge problems.

About the Speaker:
Bill Pike is the Director of the Computing and Analytics Division in the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s National Security Directorate. His division of approximately 350 staff leads research and development in data science and analytics, cyber security, visualization and human-computer interaction, and software engineering. Bill has led R&D programs that produced new information analysis methods and data-driven discovery techniques for applications including threat discovery, energy reliability, disaster response, cyber situational awareness, and identity management. He has also overseen the deployment of these capabilities to operational use in government, has commercialized multiple data visualization technologies, and holds patents in techniques for capturing analytic provenance. His technical background is in the field of information visualization, and he previously launched PNNL’s Analysis in Motion streaming analytics initiative and held leadership roles with the National Visualization and Analytics Center.  He received his Ph.D. from Penn State.
