In this video, Aaron Vose from Cray presents: Porting Computational Physics Applications to the Titan Supercomputer with OpenACC and OpenMP.
Today the Pawsey Supercomputing Center announced $21.6 million of funding from the Australian government. The operational funding, which runs until 2020-21, allows the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre to continue providing world-class resources and expertise in supercomputing, data and visualization and recognizes the WA Government’s significant commitment to cementing the State’s place as a scientific computing hub.
“Kerberos is the most famous way to allow safe communications over a non-secure network, by providing authentication and encryption. This presentation will show how far Lustre can go in Kerberos security, and what kind of authentication and encryption we can get to work. We will also take an interest in the impact of various Kerberos flavors over performance.”
“This talk will discuss various strategies to make a serial Python code faster, for example using libraries like NumPy, or tools like Cython which compile Python code. The talk will also discuss the available tools for running Python in parallel, focusing on the mpi4py module which implements MPI (Message Passing Interface) in Python.”
“Learn about extensions that enable efficient use of Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) Models like OpenSHMEM and UPC on supercomputing clusters with NVIDIA GPUs. PGAS models are gaining attention for providing shared memory abstractions that make it easy to develop applications with dynamic and irregular communication patterns. However, the existing UPC and OpenSHMEM standards do not allow communication calls to be made directly on GPU device memory. This talk discusses simple extensions to the OpenSHMEM and UPC models to address this issue.”
“We present a state-of-the-art image recognition system, Deep Image, developed using end-to-end deep learning. The key components are a custom-built supercomputer dedicated to deep learning, a highly optimized parallel algorithm using new strategies for data partitioning and communication, larger deep neural network models, novel data augmentation approaches, and usage of multi-scale high-resolution images.”
