HPC + AI Wall Street to Feature ‘Spooky’ Science for Financial Services

Albert Einstein famously described quantum mechanics as "spooky action at a distance" due to the non-intuitive nature of superposition and quantum entangled particles. It’s a good thing you don

Computer History Museum Honors Cerebras Systems – Watch a Replay of the Event

August 3, 2022

When Cerebras Systems had its coming out at Hot Chips in August 2019, the hardware community wasn't sure what to think. Attendees were understandably skeptical of the novel "wafer-scale" technology, not to mention an estimated power envelope of ~15 kilowatts for the chip alone. In the intervening three years, the company... Read more…

At PEARC22: Moving Beyond Exascale, Harnessing Artistic Expertise

July 15, 2022

The direction that exascale supercomputing will need to follow and the continuing value of visual and other non-computational experts in computer visualizations were the focus of the final two plenary sessions at the PEARC22 conference in Boston on July 13. Jack Dongarra, director of research staff and professor at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville... Read more…

Managing — if Not Eliminating — AI Bias, and Improving User Outcomes

July 13, 2022

Because humans are by our nature biased, our data – and our code – will necessarily be as well, said Ayanna Howard, dean of The Ohio State University College of Engineering. But there is hope: Sometimes we can leverage human bias to beneficial ends. The trick is that we need to build our systems so that, when we identify bad outcomes from bias, we can fix them rapidly.

As LUMI Launches, a Look at the State of EuroHPC

June 13, 2022

Today, the LUMI pre-exascale supercomputer was inaugurated in Kajaani, Finland. LUMI—which currently weighs in around 152 Linpack petaflops, but is expected to soon exceed 375—represents the largest success thus far of the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, Europe’s concerted supercomputing play. LUMI marks the beginning of the end for the first phase of EuroHPC, but the... Read more…

At ISC, the Green500 Witnesses a New Frontier in Efficient Computing

June 8, 2022

Back in 2008, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) set an ambitious target: an exascale supercomputer in a 20-megawatt envelope. That targ Read more…

Covid Policies at HPC Conferences Should Reflect HPC Research

Thomas Sterling’s ISC Keynote Celebrates Frontier and the Exascale Tour de Force

June 1, 2022

For a change, said Thomas Sterling, long-time ISC keynoter and HPC pioneer, picking a theme for his 2022 talk wasn’t a challenge. “What is the word you need that everyone will remember and agree to about a particular year? This was easy. It's exaflops. I mean real exaflops, you know, the kind you can get your teeth into exaflops, not words like exascale or low-precision exaflops, or 'we know what an exaflops is, right... Read more…

Whitepaper

2021 Storage Technology Series

Data growth is relentless and inevitable, as data has come to define many aspects of research computing. Simulation data, ever more sophisticated sensor data, and now the rise of machine learning all contribute to the accelerating pace of data growth.

Learn how archive is different than backup, how much data should be archived, and how to architect a comprehensive HSM solution using new data management technologies that can handle this accelerating growth today and well into the future.

End-to-End Support Toward Accelerating Discovery and Innovation with a Converged HPC and AI Supercomputer

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.
