The rapid development of data-intensive emerging application areas in recent years is one of major characteristics of the extensive and in-depth applications of high performance computing (HPC). The HPC applications in the emerging areas bring new challenges and opportunities at all levels of HPC, including system technological innovation, computing environment innovation, and application innovation. Based on reviewing the application progress of HPC in the emerging areas, this paper summarizes the current technical characteristics and challenges, and provides strategic recommendations for the development of emerging HPC application areas, including increasing the core technology innovation of HPC systems, building HPC environment for emerging application areas, promoting the development of HPC application software and new methods for traditional applications, as well as promoting the development of benchmarking tools in new areas such as big data and artificial intelligence.
