[SPONSORED GUEST INTERVIEW]   When HPC and AI converge remarkable things can result, and one of them is on display on the floor of the SC23 conference here in Denver at the Dell Technologies booth (#625). We encountered it ourselves, it’s an immersive VR experience in which supercomputers comprised of HPC-class Dell PowerEdge servers powered by NVIDIA, AMD and Intel microprocessors move you through a new and interactive reality.

In this sponsored video interview with Armando Acosta, Dell director of HPC product management, we discuss the company’s VR experience produced at Dell’s HPC and AI Innovation Lab. Equipped with headset, headphones and hand-held control devices, Dell’s VR experience places you in the lab and enables you to see, hear and interact with the technology driving advances achieved by Dell customers, including:

  • The James Webb Space Telescope Experience: Technology from Dell and AMD powers the supercomputer that researchers at Durham University in the UK use to set up a Cosmology Machine, COSMA8. Through this initiative, researchers are verifying a recent discovery about galaxy formation. Peering back 13.5 billion years, near the dawn of the universe, the telescope found six new galaxies, all of which are more mature and massive than anyone expected.
  • The AI & Human Genome Experience: There’s growing demand for faster next-gen sequencing data analysis tools for life sciences, pharmaceuticals and healthcare. Dell Technologies HPC, powered by NVIDIA, integrates new technologies to address growing demand for IT resources, allowing customers to focus on the accuracy of data analysis while keeping up with demands driven by data growth.
  • The Climate Simulation & Weather Modeling Experience: Dell and Intel have provided the resources to aid in the Model for Prediction Across Scales in our Atmosphere project, or MPAS-A, a collaborative initiative for developing atmosphere, ocean and other earth-system simulation components. To address memory bandwidth challenges, Intel has introduced the Xeon CPU Max Series, the first x86 processor with high bandwidth memory (HBM), dramatically improving the simulation speed of the MPAS-A. Intel Xeon GPU Max Series is Intel’s highest performing, highest density discrete GPU, which packs more than 100 billion transistors into a package and contains up to 128 Xe cores. Both are inside the Dell PowerEdge XE9640.
