At Virtual ISC 2021: Intel HPC Leader Trish Damkroger Talks ISC Highlights and the Virtuous HPC-AI Circle

At virtual ISC 2021, we talked with Trish Damkroger, Intel’s Vice President and General Manager, High Performance Computing about the state of HPC and Intel’s place in it. In this interview she discusses virtual activities the company will offer during the conference, profiles some of her favorite HPC customer case histories (think: Tazmanian devil) and talks about the keynote address she will give on Monday, June 28: Accelerating the Possibilities with HPC.

I see a continual evolution of AI being integrated into HPC workloads, and HPC workloads being enhanced by AI, even AI being used to speed up HPC infrastructures. So I’ve seen continual convergence – but really, HPC is now modeling, simulation, AI and high performance data analytics, so it’s become just part of that overall HPC workload…

“I see a continual evolution of AI being integrated into HPC workloads, and HPC workloads being enhanced by AI,” Damkroger said, “even AI being used to speed up HPC infrastructures. So I’ve seen continual convergence – but really, HPC is now modeling, simulation, AI and high performance data analytics, so it’s become just part of that overall HPC workload… And I’m pretty excited about that, because Xeon is the platform that has AI accelerated into it, it’s the only one, and we’re seeing so many more opportunities to take advantage of those accelerators we put into Xeon to really help speed up these workloads.”
