NEC Embraces Open Source Frameworks for SX-Aurora Vector Computing

In this video from ISC 2019, Dr. Erich Focht from NEC Deutschland GmbH describes how the company is embracing open source frameworks for the SX-Aurora TSUBASA Vector Supercomputer. “Until now, with the existing server processing capabilities, developing complex models on graphical information for AI has consumed significant time and host processor cycles. NEC Laboratories has developed the open-source Frovedis framework over the last 10 years, initially for parallel processing in Supercomputers. Now, its efficiencies have been brought to the scalable SX-Aurora vector processor.”
