SEEQC and BASF to Explore Quantum Computing in Chemical Reactions for Industrial Use

ELMSFORD, N.Y., Feb. 9, 2023 — SEEQC, the digital quantum computing company, and chemical company BASF today announced a partnership to explore the application of quantum computing in chemical reactions. This research will explore the potential of quantum in dissolved catalysts, otherwise known as homogeneous catalysis. Through this partnership, BASF joins the SEEQC-led QuPharma project, […]

On the Front Lines of AI: Training Large Language Models on New Tasks – without All the Retraining

Sometimes, machine learning models learn a new task without seeming to have learned – or been trained – to do it. That’s the findings of researchers at MIT, Stanford and Google Research, who report on a curious phenomenon called “in-context learning,” “in which a large language model learns to accomplish a task after seeing only […]

EuroHPC JU Renews Support of EuroCC and CASTIEL

Stuttgart, Germany — February 3, 2023 — With the start of a new three-year grant, the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) has renewed its support of EuroCC and CASTIEL. Together, this pair of projects has been supporting the development of a more consistent standard of expertise in high-performance computing (HPC), highperformance data analytics (HPDA), and artificial […]

Lenovo’s Net Carbon-Zero 2050 Commitment Validated by Global Standards Body

[SPONSORED CONTENT]  Lenovo is in the vanguard of companies worldwide fighting climate change. Along with its existing efforts to cut greenhouse gasses (GHG) from its products and operations, the company’s plan to attain carbon net-zero emissions by 2050 has been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This means Lenovo has joined only 139 […]

The organizations said the collaboration focus on joint use of supercomputing resources […]

SC22: CXL3.0, the Future of HPC Interconnects and Frontier vs. Fugaku

HPC luminary Jack Dongarra’s fascinating comments at SC22 on the low efficiency of leadership-class supercomputers highlighted by the latest High Performance Conjugate Gradients (HPCG) benchmark results will, I believe, influence the next generation of supercomputer architectures to optimize for sparse matrix computations. The upcoming technology that will help address this problem is CXL. Next generation architectures will use CXL3.0 switches to connect processing nodes, pooled memory and I/O resources into very large, coherent fabrics within a rack, and use Ethernet between racks. I call this a “Petalith” architecture (explanation below), and I think CXL will play a significant and growing role in shaping this emerging development in the high performance interconnect space.
