MIT Researchers Develop Neural Networks for Computational Chemistry Using SDSC, PSC Supercomputers

Even though computational chemistry represents a challenging arena for machine learning, a team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) may have made it easier. Using Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego and Bridges at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, they succeeded in developing an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to detect electron correlation – the interaction between a system’s electrons – which is vital but expensive to calculate in quantum chemistry.

12th JLESC Workshop to Be Held Feb. 24-26

The 12th annual Joint Laboratory for Extreme Scale Computing (JLESC) will be held virtually from Wednesday, Feb. 24 to Friday, Feb. 26. It will bring together researchers in high performance computing from the JLESC partners INRIA, the University of Illinois, Argonne National Laboratory, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, RIKEN R-CCS and The University of Tennessee to explore […]

Women in HPC: Jan. 20 Online Panel on Data, AI, Bias and Ethics

The Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Consortium (RMACC) Women in HPC Chapter will host the second of a two-part program on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 1-2 p.m. ET, on problematic datasets, AI, bias and ethics. The presentation and panel discussion will investigate problematic practices of large-scale vision datasets, examining issues such as consent and justice, discussing the […]

Update from the Frontier of Exascale Software Development

In advance of the scheduled shipment this year of the U.S.’s first exascale supercomputer, Frontier, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, an international team of software developers led by a University of Delaware professor is working on a plasma physics application. An article published yesterday in the university’s UDaily by Tracey Bryant details the work underway […]

Dublin and Paris – 17 December 2020 – Atos today announces it will deliver its first GPU-accelerated Atos Quantum Learning Machine Enhanced (Atos QLM E), the world’s highest-performing commercially available quantum simulator, to the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC). The Atos QLM E will be integrated with the Irish national supercomputer ‘Kay’ and equipped with […]

An Update from Women in HPC – Expanding Membership and Mission

In this interview, we hear from two leaders of Women in HPC, the worldwide organization that encourages, mentors and supports women and addresses gender issues in the high performance computing industry. Speaking for the organization are Lorna Rivera, research scientist in program evaluation at the Georgia Tech Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics and Computing […]

Announcing The Rich Brueckner Scholarship Awards and GoFundMe Account

Rich Brueckner was one of the most influential (and beloved) figures in high performance computing. As editor-in-chief of insideHPC, he touched thousands of lives in our industry. He was a fixture at every HPC event as he walked the show floor in his trademark red hat or held court at a nearby watering hole. “Rich […]

SC20 Announces Record Number of Teams for Annual Student Cluster Competition

This year’s Student Cluster Competition at SC20 will include two firsts: it will involve the most number of teams (19) in the competition’s 14-year history, and it will for the first time be held completely virtually. “This year’s Student Cluster Competition will be very different, as it will be 100 percent cloud-based,” explained SC20 SCC […]

NCSA’S Donna J. Cox Wins IPS Technology Innovation Award
