Argonne AI for Science Colloquium Marks Challenges and Progress

November 9, 2021

It’s an understatement to say the effort to adapt AI technology for use in scientific computing has gained steam. Last spring, the Department of Energy released a formal report – AI for Science – suggesting an AI program not unlike the exascale program reaching fruition now. There’s also the broader U.S. National Artificial Intelligence Initiative pushing for AI use throughout society. Last week, as part of a year-long celebration of its 75th founding anniversary, Argonne National Laboratory held... Read more…

AI is the Next Exascale – Rick Stevens on What that Means and Why It’s Important

August 13, 2019

Twelve years ago the Department of Energy (DOE) was just beginning to explore what an exascale computing program might look like and what it might accomplish. Today, DOE is repeating that process for AI, once again starting with science community town halls to gather input and stimulate conversation. The town hall program... Read more…

AI for Science Town Hall Series Kicks off at Argonne

August 2, 2019

Argonne National Lab, future home to the Intel-Cray Aurora supercomputer, recently hosted the first in a series of four AI for Science town hall meetings being convened by Department of Energy laboratories. The meetings are aimed at soliciting and collecting "community input on the opportunities and challenges facing the scientific community in the era of convergence of high-performance computing and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies."

Whitepaper

5 HPC Optimization Techniques

For many organizations, decisions about whether to run HPC workloads in the cloud or in on-premises datacenters are less all-encompassing and more about leveraging both infrastructures strategically to optimize HPC workloads across hybrid environments. From multi-clouds to on-premises, dark, edge, and point of presence (PoP) datacenters, data comes from all directions and in all forms while HPC workloads run in every dimension of modern datacenter schemes. HPC has become multi-dimensional and must be managed as such.

This white paper explores several of these new strategies and tools for optimizing HPC workloads across all dimensions to achieve breakthrough results in Microsoft Azure.
