Empowering Edge Cloud in the 5G & IoT Hyper-Connected Era

It is well documented that the amount of data that is being produced on a daily/monthly/yearly basis is growing at astronomical rates. IDC have estimated that by 2025, 175 zettabytes of data will be created each year and will continue to grow. The data will be in both structured and unstructured forms and there will be major logistical challenges in moving this data from the devices that create the data to where the data is acted upon and decisions made.

Shahin Khan from OrionX gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “We will discuss the digital infrastructure of the future enterprise and the state of these trends. OrionX works with clients on the impact of Digital Transformation on them, their customers, and their messages. Generally, they want to track, in one place, trends like IoT, 5G, AI, Blockchain, and Quantum Computing. And they want to know what these trends mean, how they affect each other, and when they demand action, and how to formulate and execute an effective plan. If that describes you, we can help.”

Rugged COTS Platform Takes On Fast-Changing Needs of Self-Driving Trucks

This white paper by Advantech, “Rugged COTS Platform Takes On Fast-Changing Needs of Self-Driving Trucks” discusses how the fast-changing needs of autonomous vehicles are forcing compute platforms to evolve. Advantech and Crystal Group are teaming up to power that evolution based on AV trends, compute requirements, and a rugged COTS philosophy converging for breakthrough innovation in self-driving truck designs.

Reflecting on 10 Years of Active Archive

In this special guest feature, Molly Presley from the Active Archive Alliance reflects on how the unstructured data storage industry has evolved and the implications for active archives. “We now have software that allows us to extract data from the archive for things like analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, so it adds more value and usability to archived data. And, many of the applications and processes can now be automated through APIs and CLIs to make it easy to automate common tasks and integrate with upstream applications.”

Call for Papers: HPC Saudi Conference

The HPC Saudi Conference has issued its Call for Papers. Taking place March 17-19 in Riyadh, HPC Saudi enables participants from academia, industry, and government come together to share ideas and experiences, and discuss cooperation and collaboration, to advance the cutting edge in HPC, nationally and beyond. “This is the 10th HPC Saudi event and this year it will focus on the themes related to the convergence of HPC with big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and IoT. A particular focus is to explore the future HPC technologies in the era of ubiquitous smart computing, such as big data analytics leveraging edge, fog, cloud, and distributed computing for low-latency smart sensing and actor applications.”

AI & Blockchain: Internet of smarter things

Dr. Eng Lim Goh gave this talk at HPE Discover More. He describes inspiring real-world use cases that demonstrate the transformative power of AI and HPC. Hear how the next wave of Machine Intelligence is uncovering value in data like never before to solve some of the world’s most significant challenges.”

Why HPC is no longer just for government labs and academic institutions

In this special guest feature, Trish Damkroger from Intel writes that only HPC can handle the pending wave of Big Data coming to datacenters from Smart Cities. “While each individual city’s data footprint depends on the unique mix of smart applications deployed, you could guess that each smart city still has a lot of data to contend with. In the future, many cities may turn to AI algorithms to tap into this data to manage city operations. However, the scale of the data and need for rapid insights will make HPC-level computing resources a requirement to make the most of this opportunity.”

Video: NVIDIA EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform Accelerates AI

Today NVIDIA announced the NVIDIA EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform – a high-performance, cloud-native platform that lets organizations harness rapidly streaming data from factory floors, manufacturing inspection lines and city streets to securely deliver next-generation AI, IoT and 5G-based services at scale, with low latency. “We’ve created the NVIDIA EGX Edge Supercomputing Platform for this world, where computing moves beyond personal and beyond the cloud to operate at planetary scale.”

High Speed Data Capture for AI on the Fly Edge Applications

In many AI applications, transporting large amounts of data back to a remote datacenter is impractical and undesirable. With AI on the Fly, the entire AI workflow resides at the edge at the data source. One Stop Systems’s Tim Miller explores how high performance scalable data acquisition is a fundamental and enabling component of this emerging new paradigm.
