Call for Submissions: Deep Learning on Supercomputers Workshop at SC19

The Deep Learning (DL) on Supercomputers workshop has issued its Call for Submissions. Now in its third year, the workshop will be held with the SC19 conference in Denver on Nov 17. “This third workshop in the Deep Learning on Supercomputers series provides a forum for practitioners working on any and all aspects of DL for scientific research in the High Performance Computing (HPC) context to present their latest research results. The general theme of this workshop series is the intersection of DL and HPC. Its scope encompasses application development in scientific scenarios using HPC platforms; DL methods applied to numerical simulation; fundamental algorithms, enhanced procedures, and software development methods to enable scalable training and inference; hardware changes with impact on future supercomputer design; and machine deployment, performance evaluation, and reproducibility practices for DL applications, with an emphasis on scientific usage.”

‘AI on the Fly’: Moving AI Compute and Storage to the Data Source

The impact of AI is just starting to be realized across a broad spectrum of industries. Tim Miller, Vice President Strategic Development at One Stop Systems (OSS), highlights a new approach — ‘AI on the Fly’ — where specialized high-performance accelerated computing resources for deep learning training move to the field near the data source. Moving AI computation to the data is another important step in realizing the full potential of AI.
