Video: Leading the Evolution of Compute with Neuromorphic and Quantum Computing

Jim Held from Intel Labs gave this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference in Denver. “Intel recently announced important progress in our research into future novel microarchitectures and device technology: neuromorphic and quantum computing. Loihi, our recently announced neuromorphic research chip, is extremely energy-efficient, uses data to learn and make inferences, gets smarter over time and does not need to be trained in the traditional way. Quantum computing offers the potential for exponentially greater performance on many algorithms that are computationally challenging on today’s computing architectures.”

Gravitational Waves: The Role of Computing in Opening a New Field of Astronomy

Dr. Joshua L. Willis from the California Institute of Technology and Dan Stanzione from TACC gave this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference. “These discoveries mark the beginning of gravitational wave astronomy, and in this talk we will highlight what we have learned and hope to learn in this new field, pointing out many of the ways in which high-throughput and high-performance computing have been essential to its progress.”

Intel’s Al Gara Presents: Technology Opportunities Like Never Before

Al Gara from gave this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference in Denver. “Technology visionaries architecting the future of HPC and AI will share the key challenges as well as Intel’s direction. The talk will cover the adaptation of AI into HPC workflows, along their perspective architectural developments, upcoming transitions and range of solutions, technology opportunities, and the driving forces behind them.”

The AI Future is Closer than it Seems

Gadi Singer gave this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference in Denver. “Technology visionaries architecting the future of high-performance computing and artificial intelligence (AI) will share the key challenges as well as Intel’s direction. The talk will cover the adaptation of AI into HPC workflows, along their perspective architectural developments, upcoming transitions and range of solutions, technology opportunities, and the driving forces behind them.”

Video: Deep Learning for Science

Prabhat from NERSC and Michael F. Wehner from LBNL gave this talk at the Intel HPC Developer Conference in Denver. “Deep Learning has revolutionized the fields of computer vision, speech recognition and control systems. Can Deep Learning (DL) work for scientific problems? This talk will explore a variety of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s applications that are currently benefiting from DL.”

Moving Radiology Forward with HPC at Boston Children’s Hospital

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Simon Warfield from Boston Children’s Hospital describes how radiology is being transformed with 3D and 4D MRI technology powered by AI and HPC. “A complete Diffusion Compartment Imaging study can now be completed in 16 minutes on a workstation, which means Diffusion Compartment Imaging can now be used in emergency situations, in a clinical setting, and to evaluate the efficacy of treatment. Even better, higher resolution images can be produced because the optimized code scales.”

Video: Enabling the Future of Artificial Intelligence

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Andres Rodriguez describes his presentation on Enabling the Future of Artificial Intelligence. “Intel has the industry’s most comprehensive suite of hardware and software technologies that deliver broad capabilities and support diverse approaches for AI—including today’s AI applications and more complex AI tasks in the future.”

Intel Steps up to HPC & the Enterprise with FPGAs

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference in Denver, Michael Strickland describes how Intel FPGAs are  powering new levels of performance and datacenter efficiency with FPGAs. “Altera and Intel offers a broad range of FPGA devices – from the high performaning Stratix series to the flexible MAX 10 – so you can find a device that best meets your business needs.”

Accelerating Cryo-EM with Intel Technologies

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Erik Lindahl from Stockholm University describes the challenges of cryo-EM, a technique that fires beams of electrons at proteins that have been frozen in solution, to deduce the biomolecules’ structure. “Structural biology is going through a revolution where cryo-EM now determine 3D structures from 100,000s of noisy images, but it relies on very large computations. I will present our work with Intel to accelerate the RELION program with x86 SIMD, TBB, and MKL to provide outstanding performance.”

Intel and the Coming AI Revolution

In this video from the Intel HPC Developer Conference, Gadi Singer from Intel describes how the company is moving forward with Artificial Intelligence. “We are deeply committed to unlocking the promise of AI: conducting research on neuromorphic computing, exploring new architectures and learning paradigms.”
