Rachel Maddow on Why the Europeans Have Better Forecasts

In this video from the Rachel Maddow Show, Maddow looks at how U.S. forecasting power has lagged behind European capabilities for years. Now, with newly funded NOAA supercomputers, that is all going to change. “By October 2015, the capacity of each of NOAA’s two operational supercomputers will jump to 2.5 petaflops, for a total of 5 petaflops – a nearly tenfold increase from the current capacity.”

“HPC is transforming our everyday lives, as well as our not-so-ordinary ones. From nanomaterials to jet aircrafts, from medical treatments to disaster preparedness, and even the way we wash our clothes; the HPC community has transformed the world in multifaceted ways. For its 27th anniversary, the annual SC Conference will return to Austin, TX, a city that continues to develop new ways of engaging our senses and incubating technology of all types, including supercomputing.”

“The DOE OCIO Technology Summit began with a high-level overview of how HPC came into existence followed by presentations of how HPC is being used in the community, and the challenges facing the technology’s use.”

Video: Deep Learning on GPU Clusters

“Deep neural networks have recently emerged as an important tool for difficult AI problems, and have found success in many fields ranging from computer vision to speech recognition. Training deep neural networks is computationally intensive, and so practical application of these networks requires careful attention to parallelism. GPUs have been instrumental in the success of deep neural networks, because they significantly reduce the cost of network training, which then has allowed many researchers to train better networks. In this talk, I will discuss how we were able to duplicate results from a 1000 node cluster using only 3 nodes, each with 4 GPUs.”
