How AI is Changing the Media & Entertainment Industry

This insideHPC guide series explores how artificial intelligence is revolutionizing and evolving the media and entertainment industries. To get things started, this post offers up an overview of how AI is impacting the entertainment industry and the future of these sectors. 

Revolutionizing the Media and Entertainment Industry through Artificial Intelligence

From the creative process behind the scenes, to content delivery and audience engagement, artificial intelligence is having a profound effect on the media and entertainment industry. Download the new insideHPC guide, brought to you by Dell EMC and Nvidia, to learn more about how AI is revolutionizing this sector.

New Frontera supercomputer at TACC to push the frontiers of science

Today the National Science Foundation announced a $60 million award to TACC for the deployment of Frontera, a new machine that will be one of the fastest supercomputers ever available to academia. “The new Frontera systems represents the next phase in the long-term relationship between TACC and Dell EMC, focused on applying the latest technical innovation to truly enable human potential,” said Thierry Pellegrino, vice president of Dell EMC High Performance Computing. “The substantial power and scale of this new system will help researchers from Austin and across the U.S. harness the power of technology to spawn new discoveries and advances in science and technology for years to come.”

Dell EMC Does Supercomputing Genomics Down Under

The Garvan Institute of Medical Research has selected Dell EMC to deliver an HPC system for Garvan’s Data Intensive Computer Engineering (DICE) group, designed to push scientific boundaries and transform the way genomic research is currently performed in Australia. “Genomics, the study of information encoded in an individual’s DNA, allows researchers to study how genes impact health and disease. When the first human genome was sequenced, the project took over 10 years and cost almost US$3 billion. In recent years, extraordinary advancements in DNA sequencing have made the analysis of whole human genomes viable, and today, Garvan can sequence up to 50 genomes a day at a base price of around US$1,000.”

How Dell EMC Powers HPC for the Oil & Gas industry

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting, Robert Dildy from Dell EMC describes how the company powers HPC for the Oil & Gas industry. “The Dell EMC HPC Community is a worldwide technical forum that fosters the exchange of ideas among researchers, computer scientists, technologists, and engineers and promotes the advancement of innovative, powerful HPC solutions.”

There’s still Time to register for HPC User Forum in Detroit – Agenda targets AI, Autonomous Cars, & Sensor Networks

There’s still Time to register for HPC User Forum in Detroit. The meeting takes place September 4-6 in Dearborn, Michigan. Key topics include AI and other advanced analytics, automated driving systems a.k.a. self-driving vehicles, additive manufacturing and HPC in clouds (and outer space!). “If AI is in your crosshairs, you won’t want to miss the next HPC User Forum in Dearborn, Michigan. Aside from tackling leadership computing initiatives in the U.S. and around the world, the meeting will zero in on artificial intelligence use cases on prem and in the cloud, especially self-driving vehicle development and urban sensor networks.”

Thierry Pellegrino on What’s New at the Dell HPC Community

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community Meeting, VP Thierry Pellegrino describes how AI and HPC are coming together to foster innovation. “The newly announced Dell EMC Ready Solutions for AI were built to simplify Machine Learning, deliver faster, deeper insights, and leverage Dell EMC’s proven AI expertise. Organizations no longer have to individually source and piece together their own solutions. Instead, they can rely on a Dell EMC-designed and validated set of best-of-breed technologies for software – including AI frameworks and libraries – with compute, networking and storage.”

Dell EMC Powers High Performance Computing at HPC Wales

In this video from ISC 2018, Biagio Lucini from Swansea University describes how Dell EMC is working with Supercomputing Wales on advanced computing projects including the Bloodhound Supersonic car. “Bloodhound is a global Engineering Adventure, using a 1,000mph World Land Speed Record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”

Dell EMC Accelerates Artificial Intelligence Adoption for Digital Transformation

Today Dell EMC announced new Ready Solutions for AI. With specialized designs for Machine Learning with Hadoop and Deep Learning with NVIDIA, the Dell EMC Ready Solutions simplify AI environments, deliver faster, deeper insights than the competition1, and leverage Dell EMC’s proven expertise to help organizations realize the full potential of AI. “What we’re announcing today allows customers at any scale to start seeing better business outcomes and positions them for AI’s increasingly important role in the future.”

Optimizing Performance with the Dell EMC AI & HPC Innovation Lab

In this video from the Dell EMC HPC Community meeting, Onur Celebioglu describes his work at the Dell EMC AI & HPC Innovation Lab. “Bringing together HPC operational excellence and expertise, it is staffed by a dedicated group of computer scientists, engineers and Ph.D. subject matter experts who actively partner and collaborate with customers and other members of the HPC community. The team gets early access to new technologies, integrates and tunes high‐performance compute clusters, benchmarks applications, develops best practices, and publishes white papers.”
