In this video from the 2015 OFS Developer’s Workshop, Bernard Metzler presents: Prototyping Byte-Addressable NVM Access.
This week at the OpenPOWER Summit in San Jose, the OpenPOWER Foundation showed off real hardware for the first time with 13 systems including a a prototype HPC server from IBM and new microprocessor customized for China. Built collaboratively by OpenPOWER members, the new solutions exploit the POWER architecture to provide more choice, customization and performance to customers, including hyperscale data centers.
In this episode, the Radio Free HPC team wraps up the GPU Technology Conference. The theme of the show this year was Deep Learning, a topic that is heating up the market for GPUs with challenges like image recognition and self-driving cars. As a sister conference, the OpenPOWER Summit this week in San Jose showcased the first OpenPower hardware, including a prototype HPC server from IBM that will pave the way to the two IBM/Nvidia/Mellanox Coral supercomputers expected in 2017.
In this video, Tesla does a field test of a software update that will bring powerful auto-steering functionality to its Model S fleet.
“Deep Learning has transformed many important tasks, including speech and image recognition. Deep Learning systems scale well by absorbing huge amounts of data to create accurate models. The computational resources afforded by GPUs have been instrumental to this scaling. However, as Deep Learning has become more mainstream, it has generated some hype, and has been linked to everything from world peace to evil killer robots. In this talk, Dr. Ng will help separate hype from reality, and discuss potential ways that Deep Learning technologies can benefit society in the short and long term.”
Today Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT) announced plans to build the first x86 CPU-based servers with Nvidia’s NVLink high-speed GPU interconnect technology. “NVLink unlocks the full potential of GPU accelerators by enabling CPUs and GPUs to transfer data at unprecedented speeds,” said Sumit Gupta, general manager of the Accelerated Computing business at NVIDIA. “QCT extends the benefits of NVLink to the x86 ecosystem and gives our customers an easy path to higher levels of enterprise and HPC application performance.”
