How Supersonic Commercial Flight is Possible with Big Compute

In this video from Big Compute 2020, Blake Scholl from Boom Supersonic describes how high performance computing in the cloud has opened a new era of high-speed flight. “We’ve done about 66 million core hours of computing, mainly through Rescale since we started the design effort on XB-1. And if you asked yourself what that would look like and wind tunnel testing, it would be financially and timewise just absolutely impractical.”

Big Compute Fireside Chat with Sam Altman from OpenAI

In this video from the Big Compute 2020 event, Sam Altman from the OpenAI research laboratory discusses artificial intelligence  Shawn Hansen, COO of Rescale. “I think of the most exciting developments in the field in the last few years has been how good AI for natural language is getting. I think we are going to see an explosion in the next few years of systems that can really process, understand, and interact with general language. It will, I think, be the first way that people really feel powerful AI. Because you’ll be able to interact with the systems like you do by talking to somebody else. You’ll be able to have dialogue that actually makes sense. And computers will be able to process huge volumes of text that are sort of very unstructured.”

Microsoft Powers the Move to the HPC Cloud at PASC18

In this video from PASC18 in Basel, Dr. Lukasz Miroslaw from Microsoft describes how the company is helping customers move HPC & Big Compute workloads to the Cloud. “High performance computing, artificial intelligence, and other advanced workloads are increasingly important to companies across all industries. But rapid changes in technology and workloads make it challenging for HPC teams to provide the resources their users need. Microsoft Azure provides one cloud for every HPC workload so that users can get the resources they need when they need them and only pay for what’s used.”
