Steve Oberlin Presents: Accelerating Understanding – Machine Learning & Intelligent Applications

Steve Oberlin from Nvidia presented this talk at The Digital Future conference. “Oberlin will discuss machine learning and neural networks, explore a few advanced applications based on deep learning algorithms, discuss the foundation and architecture of representative algorithms, and illustrate the pivotal role GPU acceleration is playing in this exciting and rapidly expanding field.”

One Stop Systems Partners with Liqid on 3U Flash Storage Array

“We have partnered with Liqid to provide our customers with a leading option for enterprise-class flash storage. OSS is one of the only companies currently producing expansion products as dense as this FSA. By combining our PCIe expertise with Liqid’s PCIe flash storage and software expertise, we have created a state-of-the-art flash array that can provide fast response time, high-availability, and high-speed data processing in data centers, cloud environments, mega websites, and high-performance applications.”

Cray’s Steve Scott Presents: Supercomputing Technologies and Trends: Where do we go from here?

Cray’s Steve Scott presented this talk at The Digital Future Conference. “Research and development at Cray is guided by our adaptive supercomputing vision. This vision is focused on delivering innovative, next-generation products that integrate diverse processing technologies into a unified architecture, enabling customers to surpass today’s limitations and meeting the market’s demand for realized performance.”

Raj Hazra Presents: Driving to Exascale

Raj Hazra presented this talk at ISC 2016. “As part of the company’s launch of the Intel Xeon Phi processor, Hazra describes how how cognitive computing and HPC are going to work together. “Intel will introduce and showcase a range of new technologies helping to fuel the path to deeper insight and HPC’s next frontier. Among this year’s new products is the Intel Xeon Phi processor. Intel’s first bootable host processor is specifically designed for highly parallel workloads. It is also the first to integrate both memory and fabric technologies. A bootable x86 CPU, the Intel Xeon Phi processor offers greater scalability and is capable of handling a wider variety of workloads and configurations than accelerator products.”

Record Participation Sets Stage for next NVM Express Plugfest

Today NVM Express, Inc. released the results of its fifth NVM Express (NVMe) Plugfest. The event was a distinct success, with the highest attendance to date. “NVM Express is quickly being adopted as a high performance interface standard for PCIe SSDs, and compatibility among different products is essential for greater market adoption,” said Frank Shu, VP of R&D, Verification Engineering & Compatibility Test at Silicon Motion Inc. “We are proud of having our products successfully pass through the NVMe Plugfest in ensuring compliance to the specification as well as interoperability with other NVMe products.”

In this video from PASC16, Andrew Lumsdaine from Indiana University gives his perspectives on the conference. “The PASC16 Conference, co-sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS), brings together research across the areas of computational science, high-performance computing, and various domain sciences.”

14 Students Awarded SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowships

Today SIGHPC announced the first-ever recipients of the ACM SIGHPC/Intel Computational and Data Science Fellowship. The fellowship is funded by Intel and was announced at the high performance computing community’s SC conference in November of last year. Established to increase the diversity of students pursuing graduate degrees in data science and computational science, the fellowship […]

Video: Platform Independent Profiling of a QCD Code

“We present a procedure of implementing the intermediate profiling for openQCD code that will enable the global reduction of the cost of profiling and optimizing this code commonly used in the lattice QCD community. Our approach is based on well-known SimGrid simulator, which allows for fast and accurate performance predictions of the codes on HPC architectures. Additionally, accurate estimations of the program behavior on some future machines, not yet accessible to us, are anticipated.”
