SC14 has posted two #HPCMatters videos in a five-video campaign.

This first video shares the ways supercomputers are helping scientists to understand climate change, and develop solutions to mitigate its effects. The second video reveals how high performance computing (HPC) is helping us to improve our everyday lives to create better, more efficient, more cost effective products and services, from toothpaste to diapers to dish soap.
