Record Number of Student Teams to Participate in the APAC HPC and AI Competition

The HPC-AI Advisory Council (HPCAIAC) in collaboration with the National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore today announced the teams competing in the co-organized, third annual APAC HPC-AI Competition supporting student development and mastery in high performance computing and AI disciplines. Comprised of undergraduate and graduate competitors from some of Asia Pacific’s leading academic institutions, 30 teams […]

insideHPC Special Report: Citizens Benefit from Public/Private Partnerships – Part 3

This special report sponsored by Dell Technologies, takes a look at how now more than ever, agencies from all levels of government are teaming with private Information Technology (IT) organizations to leverage AI and HPC to create and implement solutions that not only increase safety for all, but also provide a more streamlined and modern experience for citizens.

Empowering Edge Cloud in the 5G & IoT Hyper-Connected Era

It is well documented that the amount of data that is being produced on a daily/monthly/yearly basis is growing at astronomical rates. IDC have estimated that by 2025, 175 zettabytes of data will be created each year and will continue to grow. The data will be in both structured and unstructured forms and there will be major logistical challenges in moving this data from the devices that create the data to where the data is acted upon and decisions made.

Arm Throwing Elbows: LRZ to Deploy Arm-based HPE Cray CS500

It’s been a good week for Arm: the Fugaku supercomputer at Japan’s Riken research center was named no. 1 on the TOP500 listing of the world’s most powerful HPC systems, and today, the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) in Munich announced it will deploy HPE’s Cray CS500 with Fujitsu A64FX chips based on the Arm architecture – the same processor used in Fugaku (and then there’s Apple switching from x86 for new Arm chips).

ARM-based Fugaku Supercomputer on Summit of New Top500 – Surpasses Exaflops on AI Benchmark

The new no. 1 system on the updated  ranking of the TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, released this morning, is Fugaku, a machine built at the Riken Center for Computational Science in Kobe, Japan. The new top system turned in a High Performance LINPACK (HPL) result of 415.5 petaflops (nearly half an exascale), outperforming Summit, the former no. 1 system housed at the U.S. Dept. of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Lab, by a factor of 2.8x. Fugaku, powered by Fujitsu’s 48-core A64FX SoC, is the first ARM-based system to take the TOP500 top spot.

AI Supercomputer at PSC to Combine Cerebras ‘World’s Largest Chip’ and HPE Superdome Flex

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center has won a $5 million award from the National Science Foundation to build Neocortex, an AI supercomputer that incorporates the Cerebras Systems Wafer Scale Engine technology introduced last year along with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s shared memory Superdome Flex hardware. PSC, a joint research organization of Carnegie Mellon University and the University […]

New Memristors at MIT: Networks of Artificial Brain Synapses for Neuromorphic Devices

A possible glimpse at a future form of high performance edge computing – networks of artificial brain synapses – developed by engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is showing promise as a new memristor design for neuromorphic devices, which mimic the neural architecture in the human brain. Published today in Nature Nanotechnology, results of […]
