(Video) An Introduction to High Performance Computing
High Performance Computing is harnessing computational power to solve larger problems, essentially using supercomputers to solve complex scientific problems. Supercomputing have been making impact by helping solving complex and large problems quicker, which were almost impossible a decade ago. Notably researchers across various disciplines are using parallel computing to get quiker results, which is very vital in determining before advancing in their research areas.
An interesting and very instructive video from Dreamworks explaining the impacts and benefits of Supercomputing. It is been around for a while and I could not find anything so well explained.
