Supertech is a research group in MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The Supertech Research Group investigates the technologies that support scalable high-performance computing, including hardware, software, and theory. The goal is to make scalable computing simpler, faster, and more effective. The group is currently engaged in developing tools to simplify parallel computing, such as the Cilk multithreaded programming platform and its related tools for programmer productivity. In addition, we are developing parallel applications, focusing in particular on irregular problems such as graph applications. The group also studies adaptive computing, race detection, and cache-oblivious algorithms.

Our Motto: "Advancing the state of computing T1/T steps at a time."
