  • Job of the Week: Virtualization Infrastructure Engineer at PSC

    The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is seeking a Virtualization Infrastructure Engineer in our Job of the Week. “In this role, you will primarily be responsible for developing and maintaining the infrastructure to deploy and maintain fleets of hosts (physical and virtual), containers and services for the variety of project-based resources PSC operates and have a hand in planning new directions.” [READ MORE…]

  • European Leadership in HPC, Big Data, and AI in Weather and Climate Prediction

    Dr. Peter Bauer from ECMWF gave this talk at the HiPEAC’s Computing Systems Week in Edinburgh. “Meeting the future requirements for forecast reliability and timeliness needs 100-1000 times bigger high-performance computing and data management resources than today – towards what’s generally called ‘exascale’. To meet these needs, the weather and climate prediction community is undergoing one of its biggest revolutions since its foundation in the early 20th century.” [READ MORE…]

How Financial Services Can Fuel Innovation with GPU Computing

The financial services and insurance sector is one of the most data-intensive industries in modern business. Unfortunately, that abundance of information has hindered the extraction of business value from data. However, improvements in technology can take data-related challenges that had, until recently, been considered impossible to overcome. Download the new white paper from Penguin Computing that highlights how financial services and insurance firms can benefit from GPU computing and spur innovation and future technological developments.

  • Developing Next Generation Autonomous Vehicles using ‘AI on the Fly’

    Autonomous Vehicles

    The quest to remove humans from behind the wheel with truly autonomous vehicles will drive billions of dollars in investment by car manufacturers and transportation service providers to develop and acquire the required technology. In this sponsored post from One Stop Systems, Tim Miller, Vice President of Strategic Development, explores how autonomous vehicles will change the transportation landscape, and the role AI has in this shift.  [READ MORE…]

  • The Convergence of HPC and AI Workloads Requires Flexibility and Performance

    Finding the best solution to meet the requirements for intertwined HPC and AI workloads requires us tolook at the overall platform benefits versus the benefits of individual technologies. With exascale on the horizon, the blending of HPC and AI algorithms, and ever-increasing data sets, having an overall robust platform is more important than ever. Intel makes the case for HPC and AI to share a common platform.  [READ MORE…]

  • Video: Simulating Planet-Wide Bioenergy and Human Health on the Summit Supercomputer

    In this video from PASC19 in Zurich, Dan Jacobson from ORNL describes how researchers are using the #1 Summit supercomputer to tackle the challenges facing an ever-growing human population. These planet-wide simulations could not even have been attempted before the advent of pre-exascale systems like Summit.”We are using CoMet to investigate the genetic architectures underlying complex traits in applications from bioenergy to human clinical genomics.” [READ MORE…]

  • Future MareNostrum 5 Supercomputer at BSC to host Made-in-Europe Technologies

    Today the Barcelona Supercomputing Center announced plans to host EuroHPC processor technologies within its future Mare Norstrom 5 supercomputer. “Offering an heterogenous architecture, probably based on two big clusters with different characteristics, is BSC’s proposal to optimize both response times and energy use of the different works that the future supercomputer will have to compute. The details of this heterogenous architecture will be defined as the works of definition and the infrastructure tender progress.” [READ MORE…]

  • RDMA, Scalable MPI-3 RMA, and Next-Generation Post-RDMA Interconnects

    Torsten Hoefler from ETH Zurich gave this talk at the Swiss HPC Conference. “Network cards contain rather powerful processors optimized for data movement and limiting the functionality to remote direct memory access seems unnecessarily constraining. We develop sPIN, a portable programming model to offload simple packet processing functions to the network card.” [READ MORE…]

  • Video: Supercomputing Dynamic Earthquake Ruptures

    Researchers are using XSEDE supercomputers to model multi-fault earthquakes in the Brawley fault zone, which links the San Andreas and Imperial faults in Southern California. Their work could predict the behavior of earthquakes that could potentially affect millions of people’s lives and property. “Basically, we generate a virtual world where we create different types of earthquakes. That helps us understand how earthquakes in the real world are happening.” [READ MORE…]
