Video: “What is Supercomputing?”

In this video from ASC16, students compete in the final round of the Asia Student Cluster Challenge. “Some 175 teams from universities in North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Europe and Oceania participated in ASC16. Of these, 16 advanced to the final round held last week at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China. Armed with their custom-built systems, finalists competed on six different supercomputing application benchmarks within a 3,000W system power limit.”

Deep Learning, Ocean Modeling, and HPCG Come to ASC16 Student Supercomputer Challenge

Today the ASC Student Supercomputer Challenge (ASC16) announced details from their Preliminary Contest on January 6. College students from around the world were asked to design a high performance computer system that optimizes HPCG and MASNUM_WAM applications under 3000W as well as to conduct a DNN performance optimization on a standalone hybrid CPU+MIC platform. All system designs along with the result and the code of the optimization application are to be submitted by March 2.
