The TransContinuum is the unison of related digital technologies which offer solutions for the operation of complex data workflow systems. In this continuum, HPC plays a central role as the engine propelling AI, Big Data, IoT, Cybersecurity, and Mathematical components to work together.

The Transcontinuum Initiative, or TCI, is developing a vision of the characteristics of the infrastructure required for the convergence of data and compute capabilities in many leading-edge industrial and scientific use scenarios.

A paradigm change is needed: we will have to design systems encompassing millions of computing devices distributed over scientific instruments, IoT, supercomputers, and Cloud systems through LAN, WLAN, and 5G networks.

The ambition of TCI is also to become a meeting place of experts representing various disciplines in both science and industry – an asset that Europe can apply in the resolution of its other challenges such as healthcare, climate change or smart cities.

We live in an era of mathematics. Its influence permeates economic and social activity and its influence and impact are profound. Yet its role is not well understood, we are not using it as well as we could and should, and we are investing too little. We are delighted to be on board the TransContinuum Initiative where, together with the other seven associations, we can work on strengthening the role of Europe in mathematical modeling and algorithms as well as the HPC, IA, and Data area using mathematics as a key enabling technology.
