In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting, Jay Boisseau from Dell EMC describes how the company is moving forward as a thought leader in Artificial Intelligence.

Dell EMC is at the forefront of AI, providing the technology that makes tomorrow possible, today. Dell EMC uniquely provides an extensive portfolio of technologies — spanning workstations, servers, networking, storage, software and services — to create the HPC and data analytics solutions that underpin successful AI, machine and deep learning implementations. What’s more, Dell EMC has invested to create a portfolio of Ready Solutions, simplifying the IT infrastructure to provide faster, deeper insights. You can rely on the Dell EMC team of experts to help you adapt as AI, machine and deep learning evolve over time.

Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI are validated, hardware and software stacks optimized to accelerate AI initiatives, shortening deployment time from weeks to days. They increase data scientist productivity by offering self‐service workspaces, allowing each data scientist to configure their environment from a library of AI models and frameworks in just five clicks. Customers report that Dell EMC Hadoop solutions can help boost data scientist productivity by as much as 30 percent. IT operations are also simplified through a single console for monitoring the health and configuration of the cluster.

Dell EMC delivers unprecedented performance for deep learning at scale with leading Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, NVIDIA GPUs, high‐speed networking and Dell EMC Isilon all‐flash scale out NAS storage.  Designed for accelerated performance while eliminating I/O bottlenecks, Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI deliver fast access to larger data sets to help improve model accuracy, while inferencing at scale can drive actionable responses in real‐time. To enhance customer success, Dell EMC includes award‐winning services with Ready Solutions for AI. Dell EMC consulting services provide expert guidance to bridge the gap between IT, data scientists and the lines of business. In addition to a world‐class engineering team, the HPC and AI Innovation Lab has one of the world’s fastest supercomputers and extensive industry partnerships, bringing together a community of the brightest minds focused on AI, machine and deep learning.

Jay Boisseau is a recognized leader and strategist in advanced computing technologies, with over 20 years of experience in building and leading computing programs, departments, and organizations. Jay has been working with Dell EMC since 2014, and now serves as the AI & HPC Technology Strategist. In this role, Jay evaluates new technologies and approaches for machine/deep learning and for HPC, assesses customers’ workloads needs and plans, and helps design new solutions to increase customers’ innovation, productivity, and efficiency. Before coming to Dell EMC, Jay created the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin and led it (2001-14) to world prominence. Under Jay’s leadership, TACC deployed numerous world-class computing systems for U.S. open scientific research and developed new programs to enable thousands of researchers to accomplish more with these powerful technologies. Prior to TACC, Jay worked as an associate director at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (1996-2001) and at the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (1994-96). Jay received his doctorate in astronomy from UT Austin for his advanced computational research in modeling the structure supernovae explosions.

​The Dell EMC HPC Community is a worldwide technical forum that fosters the exchange of ideas among researchers, computer scientists, technologists, and engineers and promotes the advancement of innovative, powerful HPC solutions. The next Dell HPC Community Meeting takes place at SC18 in Dallas.
