Podcast: What is an Ai Supercomputer?

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team asks whether a supercomputer can or cannot be a “AI Supercomputer.” The question came up after HPE announced a new AI system called Jean Zay that will double the capacity of French supercomputing. “So what are the differences between a traditional super and a AI super? According to Dan, it mostly comes down to how many GPUs the system is configured with, while Shahin and Henry think it has something to do with the datasets.”

France to Double Supercomputing Capacity with Jean Zay Ai System from HPE

HPE is building a new Ai supercomputer for GENCI in France. Called Jean Zay, the 14 Petaflop system is part of an artificial intelligence initiative called for by President Macron to bolster the nation’s scientific and economic growth. “At Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we continue to fuel the next frontier and unlock discoveries with our end-to-end HPC and AI offerings that hold a strong presence in France and have been further strengthened just in the past couple of years.”
