The Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program’s mission is to advance applied mathematics and computer science; deliver the most sophisticated computational scientific applications in partnership with disciplinary science; advance computing and networking capabilities; and develop future generations of computing hardware and software tools for science and engineering in partnership with the research community, including U.S. industry. ASCR supports state-of-the-art capabilities that enable scientific discovery through computation.
Maintaining U.S. leadership requires specialized computer scientists and applied mathematicians who know how to develop supercomputing methods to harness supercomputers to solve real world problems today and develop the technology of the future. Supercomputers push the edge of what is possible for US science and innovation—enabling scientists and engineers to explore systems too large, too complex, too dangerous, too small, or too fleeting to do in the real world. From atoms to astrophysics understanding these complex systems delivers new materials, new drugs, more efficient engines and turbines, better weather forecasts, and other technologies to maintain U.S. competitiveness in a wide array of industries.
We support U.S. research at hundreds of institutions and deploy open-access supercomputing and network facilities at our National Laboratories. Our supercomputers are the world’s most powerful and our high-speed network is specially built for moving enormous scientific data, at light speed. From artificial intelligence to quantum computing, our vibrant research community keeps the U.S. ahead in a rapidly evolving high-tech field and impacted industries. Through strong partnerships between scientists, applied mathematicians and computer scientists, we maintain U.S. leadership in science, technology, and innovation. This talk will focus on programmatic activities within my program management portfolio in High Performance Computing (HPC), Advanced Wireless (5G), and Microelectronics Research and Development.
Dr. Robinson E. Pino is a Program Manager and previous Acting Division Research Director for the Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program office in the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science. In his portfolio, Dr. Pino focuses on revolutionary basic research and development efforts for high performance computing, cybersecurity, neuromorphic computing, artificial intelligence, advanced wireless, microelectronics, and applications that will enable our continued leadership through exascale and beyond computing and energy efficient technologies. Dr. Pino has expertise within technology development, program management, government, industry, and academia. He previously worked as Director of Cyber Research at ICF International advancing the state of the art in cybersecurity by applying autonomous concepts from computational intelligence and neuromorphic computing for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and various collaborators in National Laboratories, industry and academia. In addition, Dr. Pino was a Senior Electronics Engineer at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) where he was a program manager and principle scientist for the computational intelligence and neuromorphic computing research efforts. He also worked at IBM as an advisory scientist/engineer development enabling advanced CMOS technologies and as a business analyst within IBM’s photomask business unit where he was responsible for capacity planning, and manufacturing and development spending. Dr. Pino served as an adjunct professor at the University of Vermont where he taught courses in electrical engineering.
Dr. Pino received Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering with honors from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a B.E. in Electrical Engineering with honors, summa cum laude, from the City University of New York, City College. He is the recipient of numerous awards and professional distinctions; has published over 50 technical papers and technical reports, including four books; and holds nine patents.
