Cynthia R. McIntyre (former MIT Hugh Hampton Young Fellow) is the Senior Vice President at the Council on Competitiveness, a non-partisan, NGO, which is dedicated to developing public policy recommendations to enhance American competitiveness by creating new domestic jobs in the U.S. McIntyre has established herself as a driving force in influencing HPC development. She has a proven track record of cultivating government and private industry collaborations to create various new technology innovations.
McIntyre’s responsibilities include leading the High Performance Computing (HPC) Initiative that involves helping to develop policies to enhance the use of HPC in the private sector for greater economic return and competitive advantage. As a result of these efforts, the Council was asked by the White House in 2010 to create and lead a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) to help small- and medium-size manufacturers (SME) in the Midwest to use HPC modeling and simulation. The PPP is known as the National Digital Engineering and Manufacturing Consortium (NDEMC). Since its inception, several of these emerging enterprises have seen improvement to their product development process and bottom line sales projections. Read the full story on McIntyre at HPCwire.
