The Milwaukee
Institute
has proposed
a dramatic expansion of
the region’s capacity

for
high
-
performance
computing,
high
speed data transport
and
mass data storage.



The Institute believes the region’s
ability to handle
the
electronic data
needed for
the research and development
activities of major academic
institutions
is
essential for
economic growth and job creation
.



The Institute has developed
the
elements of a comprehensive
network
, including data centers, shared computational
resources and more.

Understanding the Situation


Global economic expansion and job growth are
being propelled by technological change that is
unstoppable.



Real estate development initiatives now being
emphasized by local leaders will not change the
outcome in the fight for jobs.



Lack of technology development agenda is the core
problem that needs to be addressed now, before its
too late.

Understanding the Problem

Skill Levels Rising Everywhere

In 2012 we estimate
that the US
workforce has shifted

Inventing Manufacturing



Unskilled labor has declining value in the modern
world of advanced manufacturing.



Access to skilled knowledge workers is the key to
success in manufacturing of the future.



Working knowledge of science, mathematics and
information technology will be essential.

No IT…No Advanced Mfg!

Workforce Study Findings


IT workers are
largest, single cohort

of knowledge
workers by type in the region.



The population of IT workers is the
fastest growing
cohort

of workers and the rate of growth is accelerating.



IT workers have average salaries that are more than
twice the average salaries

in the region.



IT workers are
statistically invisible

because they are
counted as employee across all industry and service
sectors of the economy.

Embracing the Solution

At the Milwaukee Institute we believe that…




We must
invest in high tech
infrastructure.



We must promote the
formation of industry clusters
that
focus on a shared technology research agenda.



We must inspire efforts to apply new science and
technology to
solving “grand challenge” problems
.



We must focus on the
“next gen” workforce
to make it
happen.

Rise of Technical Computing

23


Increasing CPU speed and lower cost per cycle has
made it possible to process increasingly complex
and larger data sets than ever before.



The scientific method can now be applied in
reverse by using computers to analyze enormous
amounts of data in ways that produce new science.

The explosion of digital data requires massively
parallel processing systems that in themselves
create new ways of thinking about information.



Technical computing makes it possible to formulate
large scale models to answer questions that in the
past would have been inconceivable.

Why Technical Computing?

Reality is not what it appears to be.


Real world is not a simple, linear system.


Real world inputs are often disproportionate to outputs.


Real world has systems we don’t fully understand, such as
phase changes, e.g., solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.


Real world systems have limits and tipping points.
