Today the HPC AI Advisory Council announced the 2018 APAC HPC-AI Competition. Co-sponsored by National Supercomputing Centre in Singapore, the 2018 APAC HPC-AI Competition will start on March 27, 2018 and continue until August 2018.

The APAC HPC-AI competition encourages international teams in the APAC region to showcase their HPC and AI expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition that builds critical skills, professional relationships, competitive spirits and lifelong comraderies. The competition is open to university and technical institute teams from the entire APAC region, and includes both creating missions and addressing challenges around AI development and testing, and high-performance computing workloads.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a pillar of today’s technological world, offering solutions that enable better and more accurate decisions based on the massive amounts of data being collected. AI encompasses a wide range of trends and use cases that apply to nearly every industry today, ranging from security, finance, and image and voice recognition, to self-driving cars and smart cities.

High Performance Computing (HPC) enables universities, research laboratories and commercial vendors to develop the products and services of tomorrow – from safer cars and airplanes, to accurate weather and storm prediction, to finding new cures, and much more. Since HPC and AI applications share the same underlying technologies and infrastructures, new developments in HPC are immediately being adopted for AI, and vice versa.

The winning teams will receive certificates and cash awards. The winning team will be invited to participate in the 2019 International HPC-ISC Student Cluster Competition, to be held in Germany, June 2019.
