In this video, Jeff Larkin from NVIDIA presents: Unified Memory on Summit.

The biggest problems in science require supercomputers of unprecedented capability. That’s why the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) launched Summit, a system 8 times more powerful than ORNL’s previous top-ranked system Titan. Summit is providing scientists with incredible computing power to solve challenges in energy, artificial intelligence, human health, and other research areas, that were simply out of reach until now. These discoveries will help shape our understanding of the universe, bolster US economic competitiveness, and contribute to a better future.

The Summit Application Readiness Workshop had the primary objective of providing the detailed technical information and hands-on help required for select application teams to meet the scalability and performance metrics required for Early Science proposals. Technical representatives from the IBM/NVIDIA Center of Excellence delivered a few plenary presentations, but most of the time was set aside for the extended application teams to carry out hands-on technical work on Summit.
