Video: Access the Future Today with Quantum Computing

Dr. Dario Gil gave this talk at the IBM Think conference. “For two years now, IBM has enabled more than 100,000 people around the globe to access quantum computers for learning, research, and tackling new problems. IBM’s Dario Gil will discuss this radically different approach to computing built on the laws of quantum mechanics and how the roadmap for mainstream adoption of this new technology is being forged today by IBM in collaboration with a global community across business, academia and research.”

ScaleMP teams with AMD for Scale-up EPYC Servers

Today ScaleMP announced that it has partnered with AMD to enable AMD server OEMs to create systems with 4, 8, and up to 128 processor sockets, up to 8,192 CPUs and 256 terabytes of shared memory. “Through this collaboration, ScaleMP enables AMD customers to create scale-up servers that will deliver breakthrough performance and help lower the TCO for organizations – enabling customers to use more of their budget for their applications and tackle the most demanding workloads while enjoying a broader choice of multi-socket servers.”

Video: Why InfiniBand is the Way Forward for Ai and Exascale

In this video, Gilad Shainer from the InfiniBand Trade Association describes how InfiniBand offers the optimal interconnect technology for Ai, HPC, and Exascale. “Tthrough Ai, you need the biggest pipes in order to move those giant amount of data in order to create those Ai software algorithms. That’s one thing. Latency is important because you need to drive things faster. RDMA is one of the key technology that enables to increase the efficiency of moving data, reducing CPU overhead. And by the way, now, there’s all of the Ai frameworks that exist out there, supports RDMA as a default element within the framework itself.”

Call for Submissions: HPC Innovation Excellence Awards

Today Hyperion Research today invited members of the worldwide high performance computing community to submit entries for the next round of HPC Innovation Excellence Awards. “The program’s main goals are to showcase scientific success stories and return on investment (ROI) successes involving HPC; to help other users better understand the benefits of adopting HPC and justify HPC investments; to demonstrate the value of HPC to funding bodies and politicians; and to expand public support for increased HPC investments.”

Big Compute Podcast Looks at New Architectures for HPC

In this Big Compute podcast, host Gabriel Broner from Rescale interviews Mike Woodacre, HPE Fellow, to discuss the shift from CPUs to an emerging diversity of architectures. They discuss the evolution of CPUs, the advent of GPUs with increasing data parallelism, memory driven computing, and the potential benefits of a cloud environment with access to multiple architectures.

Today Mellanox announced that its 200 Gigabit HDR InfiniBand solutions are now shipping worldwide to deliver leading efficiency and scalability to HPC, Ai, cloud, storage and other data intensive applications. “The world-wide strategic race to Exascale supercomputing, the exponential growth in data we collect and need to analyze, and the new performance levels needed to support new scientific investigations and innovative product designs, all require the fastest and most advanced HDR InfiniBand interconnect technology. HDR InfiniBand solutions enable breakthrough performance levels and deliver the highest return on investment, enabling the next generation of the world’s leading supercomputers, hyperscale, Artificial Intelligence, cloud and enterprise datacenters.”

Making Computer Vision Real Today – For Any Application

With the demand for intelligent vision solutions increasing everywhere from edge to cloud, enterprises of every type are demanding visually-enabled – and intelligent – applications. Up till now, most intelligent computer vision applications have required a wealth of machine learning, deep learning, and data science knowledge to enable simple object recognition, much less facial recognition or collision avoidance. That’s changed with the introduction of Intel’s Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit.

The Best Software-Defined Network for the Best Network Efficiency (or Getting Ready for Exascale)

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a concept that has emerged in recent years to decouple network control and forwarding functions. The one network type that does not require special effort to adjust it to the computational needs of high-performance computing, deep learning or any other data intensive application is InfiniBand. In this guest article, Mellanox Technologies’ Gilad Shainer and Eitan Zahavi explore Infiniband networks and the benefits and potential of software-defined networking.
