See How the Convergence of HPC and AI is Changing Supercomputing at ISC 2018

It’s a fascinating time for High Performance Computing. The convergence of AI, analytics, and simulation and modeling is transforming systems and users. “So, there’s a lot to talk about it at ISC 2018, including announcements from Intel on next-generation Intel® Omni-Path Architecture and Intel® Select Solutions for Professional Visualization, to Machine Learning Day with Pradeep Dubey, and demos, presentations, and panel discussions in Intel’s Collaboration Hub.”

Intel FPGAs Accelerate Microsoft’s Project Brainwave

Today, Intel announced that its AI technology is being used by Microsoft to power their new accelerated deep learning platform, called Project Brainwave. “Project Brainwave achieves a major leap forward in both performance and flexibility for cloud-based serving of deep learning models. We designed the system for real-time AI, which means the system processes requests as fast as it receives them, with ultra-low latency. Real-time AI is becoming increasingly important as cloud infrastructures process live data streams, whether they be search queries, videos, sensor streams, or interactions with users.”
