Thierry Pellegrino on the Move to AI with HPC at Dell EMC

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, Thierry Pellegrino describes how Dell EMC customers are applying HPC technologies to AI workloads. “I’ll just mention one of our customers, AeroFarms, who use a lot of our technology in order to bring the value of IoT into an environment where you can do machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and automatically grow crops in an environment that you would never think it would be possible.”

NVIDIA Announces DGX-2 as the “First 2 Petaflop Deep Learning System”

Today NVIDIA unveiled the NVIDIA DGX-2: the “world’s largest GPU.” Ten times faster than its predecessor, the DGX-2 the first single server capable of delivering two petaflops of computational power. DGX-2 has the deep learning processing power of 300 servers occupying 15 racks of datacenter space, while being 60x smaller and 18x more power efficient.

Princeton Team using Deep Learning to develop Fusion Energy

Over at the NVIDIA Blog, Tonie Hansen writes that Princeton researchers are using deep learning to help establish the feasibility of delivering fusion energy in the foreseeable future. “The Princeton team has scaled up the capabilities of its FRNN software using thousands of GPUs to train deep neural networks. After successfully running on 6,000 Tesla K20 GPUs on Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Titan supercomputer, FRNN has recently demonstrated the ability to scale to 3,000 NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPUs on Japan’s new TSUBAME-3 supercomputer at the Tokyo Institute of Technology.”
