Podcast: Geoffrey Hinton on the Rise of Deep Learning


“In Deep Learning what we do is try to minimize the amount of hand engineering and get the neural nets to learn, more or less, everything. Instead of programing computers to do particular tasks, you program the computer to know how to learn. And then you can give it any old task, and the more data and the more computation you provide, the better it will get.”

Podcast: Cray’s Steve Scott on Programming for the Next Decade

Steve Scott

“Our computing systems continue to evolve, providing significant challenges to the programming teams managing large, long-lived projects. Issues include rapidly increasing on-node parallelism, varying forms of heterogeneity, deepening memory hierarchies, growing concerns around resiliency and silent data corruption, and worsening storage bottlenecks.”

Podcast: Satoshi Matsuoka on the Convergence of HPC and Big Data

Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka, University of Tokyo

“Rapid growth in the use cases and demands for extreme computing and huge data processing is leading to convergence of the two infrastructures. The trend towards convergence is not only strategic however but rather inevitable as the Moore’s law ends such that sustained growth in data capabilities, not compute, will advance the capacity and thus the overall capacities towards accelerating research and ultimately the industry.”
