  • Cerebras Systems Unveils the Industry’s First Trillion Transistor Chip for AI

    Today AI startup Cerebras Systems unveiled the largest chip ever built. “The Cerebras Wafer-Scale Engine (WSE) is the largest chip ever built. 56x larger than any other chip, the WSE delivers more compute, more memory, and more communication bandwidth. This enables AI research at previously-impossible speeds and scale.” [READ MORE…]

  • UPMEM Puts CPUs Inside Memory to Allow Apps to Run 20 Times Faster

    Today UPMEM announced a Processing-in-Memory (PIM) acceleration solution that allows big data and AI applications to run 20 times faster and with 10 times less energy. Instead of moving massive amounts of data to CPUs, the silicon-based technology from UPMEM puts CPUs right in the middle of data, saving time and improving efficiency. By allowing compute to take place directly in the memory chips where data already resides, data-intensive applications can be substantially accelerated. [READ MORE…]

  • Video: Unboxing the NVIDIA DGX-1 Supercomputer at Georgia Tech

    In this video, Oded Green from NVIDIA unboxes a DGX-1 supercomputer at the College of Computing Data Center at Georgia Tech. “And while the DGX-1 arriving at Georgia Tech for student-use is exciting enough, there is cause for more celebration as a DGX Station also arrived this year as part of a new NVIDIA Artificial Intelligence Lab (NVAIL) grant awarded to CSE. The NVAIL grant focuses on developing multi-GPU graph analytics and the DGX station is constructed specifically for data science and artificial intelligence development.” [READ MORE…]

  • Podcast: Memory-Driven Computing

    In this podcast, HPE Distinguished Technologist Kim Keeton describes the concept of Memory-Driven Computing and how it relates to traditional high performance computing. In terms of application areas, Kim also explains her perspective on blockchain and self-driving cars. “Memory-Driven Computing sets itself apart by giving every processor in a system access to a giant shared pool of memory – a sharp departure from today’s systems where relatively small amounts of memory are tethered to each processor. The resulting inefficiencies limit performance.” [READ MORE…]
