DeepSat: Monitoring the Earth’s Vitals with AI

In order to better keep a finger on the pulse of the Earth’s health, NASA developed DeepSat, a deep learning AI framework for satellite image classification and segmentation. DeepSat provides vital signs of changing landscapes at the highest possible resolution, enabling scientists to use the data for independent modeling efforts.

How to Avoid Storage Bottlenecks in the Flash Era

Businesses with I/O-intensive computing environments run into new software challenges almost daily – and many of these concerns today revolve around storage as data continues to grow. DDN is working to help solve one of the challenges to avoid storage bottlenecks. Download this paper to learn about a new software solution that manages at-scale flash to eliminate file system bottlenecks and voids old rules for I/O application optimization. 

Building a True Data Solution

Many of the biggest challenges in current data center deployments involve moving and protecting the massive amount of data that is used by today’s leading companies. In this sponsored post from One Stop Systems, Inc., Tom Matson, Director of Software Solutions Sales at SanDisk, explains how a successful data solution is built. “With flash migrating from PCIe to NVMe, OSS continues to offer a “one-stop” hardware and software solution for high-performance AFA storage that combines their industry-leading systems with the latest version of high-performance ION software.”

Intel Xeon Scalable Platform Enables Major Advancements for HPC

Described by Intel as the biggest platform advancement in a decade, the new Intel Xeon Scalable Platform accelerates high-performance computing workloads and provides new capabilities to advance emerging fields like artificial intelligence and self-driving vehicles.

What Developers Need to Consider When Exploring Machine Learning

Frameworks, applications, libraries and toolkits—journeying through the world of deep learning can be daunting. If you’re trying to decide whether or not to begin a machine or deep learning project, there are several points that should first be considered. This is the first article in a five-part series that covers the steps to take before launching a machine learning startup. 

Artificial Intelligence: A Journey to Deep Space

Recent advancements in Artificial Intelligence, especially deep learning, are set to make an impact in the field of astronomy and astrophysics. In fact, the benefits of using AI to control space-exploring robots are already being realized by missions that are currently underway.

Advancing AI Capabilities with Next-Generation HPC Solutions

HPE and NVIDIA are delivering IT solutions with superhuman intelligence to harness the full power of AI and pioneer the next generation of HPC systems. In this special guest feature, HPE’s Vineeth Ram explores the possibilities of advancing AI capabilities with next-generation HPC solutions. “HPE is excited to complement our purpose-built systems innovation for Deep Learning and AI with the unique, industry leading strengths of the NVIDIA V100 technology architecture to accelerate insights and intelligence for our customers.”

Using HPC to Track Massive Ice Shelves

Mellanox Technologies’ Vice President of Marketing, Gilad Shainer, discusses the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Mellanox’s high performance computing work that is tracking the Earth’s most massive ice shelves. Essentially, the simulations needed to track the massive ice sheet’s progress require extremely large resolutions, large outputs and high computational demands – all of which requires massive computational power.

Intel’s Xeon Scalable Processors Provide Cooling Challenges for HPC

Unless you reduce node and rack density, the wattages of today’s high-poweredCPUs and GPUs are simply no longer addressable with air cooling alone. Asetek explores how new processors, such as Intel’s Xeon Scalable processors, often call for more than just air cooling. “The largest Xeon Phi direct-to-chip cooled system today is Oakforest-PACS system in Japan. The system is made up of 8,208 computational nodes using Asetek Direct-to-Chip liquid cooled Intel Xeon Phi high performance processors with Knights Landing architecture. It is the highest performing system in Japan and #7 on the Top500.”

Petabyte-Scale Active Archive in Private Object Storage

In big data science, storage archives protect massive volumes of research-critical content. Scientists at the University of Warsaw (UW) Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) rely on a petabyte-scale active archive built on modern storage technology.
