You may be surprised how ready Python is for heterogeneous programming, and how easy it is to use today. Our first three articles about heterogeneous programming focused primarily on C++ as we ponder “how to enable programming in the face of an explosion of hardware diversity that is coming?” For a refresher on what motivates this question...

A new AI programming language seeks to ease the process of writing inference algorithms and other predictive models without the hassle of grinding out complicated equations and code. Among the goals of the probabilistic programming system dubbed “Gen” is making it easier for coding novices to write models and algorithms for broader AI applications such as computer vision and robotics.

ISC is looming fast and on the Wednesday we will be holding a panel asking the question whether it is time to focus more on the consolidation and interoperabili Read more…
Giving developers the ability to write code once and use it on different platforms is important. Organizations are increasingly moving to open source and open standard solutions which can aid in code portability. AMD developed a porting solution that allows developers to port proprietary NVIDIA® CUDA® code to run on AMD graphic processing units (GPUs).
This paper describes the AMD ROCm™ open software platform which provides porting tools to convert NVIDIA CUDA code to AMD native open-source Heterogeneous Computing Interface for Portability (HIP) that can run on AMD Instinct™ accelerator hardware. The AMD solution addresses performance and portability needs of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and high performance computing (HPC) for application developers. Using the AMD ROCm platform, developers can port their GPU applications to run on AMD Instinct accelerators with very minimal changes to be able to run their code in both NVIDIA and AMD environments.
A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.
This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
