In this video from the Stanford HPC Conference, Scot Schultz from Mellanox presents: Highest Peformance and Scalability for HPC and AI.

“It has been said that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will create the next industrial revolution, the fourth industrial revolution that modern-day society has experienced since the dawn of mechanical production and steam power energy documented in 1784.

Today, many agree that the next wave of disruptive technology blurring the lines between the digital, physical and even the biological, will be the fourth industrial revolution of AI. The fusion of state-of-the-art computational capabilities, extensive automation and extreme connectivity is already affecting nearly every aspect of society, driving global economics and extending into every aspect of our daily life.

The emerging class of intelligent interconnect devices, such as Mellanox Quantum HDR 200Gb/s and ConnectX-6 are now enabling in-network co-processing, and a more effective mapping of communication between devices in the system which increases system performance by an order of magnitude.

Similar to the ecosystem for HPC, we will outline the capabilities to achieve world-record setting performance, from the perspective of the network, which is the fundamental design consideration for workloads that driven by data, such as AI. By providing the best-in-class network and acceleration engines, we will explore the importance of the advanced capabilities of these smart-interconnect devices, how they are being used today and for the future, as we prepare to approach the next milestone to Exascale computing and with extreme distributed machine learning the next industrial revolution.”

Scot Schultz is a HPC technology specialist with broad knowledge in operating systems, high speed interconnects and processor technologies. Joining the Mellanox team in March 2013 as Director of HPC and Technical Computing, Schultz is a 25-year veteran of the computing industry. Prior to joining Mellanox, he spent the past 17 years at AMD in various engineering and leadership roles, most recently in strategic HPC technology ecosystem enablement. Scot was also instrumental with the growth and development of the Open Fabrics Alliance as co-chair of the board of directors. Scot currently maintains his role as Director of Educational Outreach, founding member of the HPC Advisory Council and of various other industry organizations.
