  • oneAPI: Single Programming Model to Deliver Cross-Architecture Performance

    Bill Savage from Intel gave this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference. “Learn about oneAPI, the new Intel-led industry initiative to deliver a high-performance unified programming model specification spanning CPU, GPU, FPGA, and other specialized architectures. It includes the Data Parallel C++ cross-architecture language, a set of libraries, and a low-level hardware interface. Intel oneAPI Beta products are also available for developers who want to try out the programming model and influence its evolution.” [READ MORE…]

  • HLRS Inaugurates Hawk Supercomputer from HPE

    HLRS officially dedicated their new Hawk supercomputer computer this week at a ceremony in Stuttgart, Germany. With a peak performance of approximately 26 Petaflops, Hawk is an HPE Apollo 9000 System and is among the fastest supercomputers worldwide and the fastest general purpose system for scientific and industrial computing in Europe. “Computers like Hawk are tools for advanced research in the sciences and in industry,” said Parliamentary State Secretary Dr. Michael Meister. “They enable excellent science and innovation, and solidify Germany’s international position as a top location for supercomputing.” [READ MORE…]

  • CUDA-Python and RAPIDS for blazing fast scientific computing

    Abe Stern from NVIDIA gave this talk at the ECSS Symposium. “We will introduce Numba and RAPIDS for GPU programming in Python. Numba allows us to write just-in-time compiled CUDA code in Python, giving us easy access to the power of GPUs from a powerful high-level language. RAPIDS is a suite of tools with a Python interface for machine learning and dataframe operations. Together, Numba and RAPIDS represent a potent set of tools for rapid prototyping, development, and analysis for scientific computing. We will cover the basics of each library and go over simple examples to get users started.” [READ MORE…]

Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing – Choosing the Right GPU for the Job

In this new whitepaper from our friends over at Exxact Corporation we take a look at the important topic of deep learning for Natural Language Processing (NLP) and choosing the right GPU for the job. Focus is given to the latest developments in neural networks and deep learning systems, in particular a neural network architecture called transformers. Researchers have shown that transformer networks are particularly well suited for parallelization on GPU-based systems.
