Second GPU Cloudburst Experiment Paves the Way for Large-scale Cloud Computing

Researchers at SDSC and the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center have successfully completed a second computational experiment using thousands of GPUs across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and the Google Cloud Platform. “We drew several key conclusions from this second demonstration,” said SDSC’s Sfiligoi. “We showed that the cloudburst run can actually be sustained during an entire workday instead of just one or two hours, and have moreover measured the cost of using only the two most cost-effective cloud instances for each cloud provider.”

NVIDIA Jarvis AI SDK Fuses Vision, Speech, and other Sensors into One System

“The NVIDIA Jarvis SDK offers a complete workflow to build, train and deploy GPU-accelerated AI systems that can use visual cues such as gestures and gaze along with speech in context. For example lip movement can be fused with speech input to identify the active speaker. Gaze can be used to understand if the speaker is engaging the AI agent or other people in the scene. Such multi-modal fusion enables simultaneous multi-user, multi-context conversations with the AI agent that need deeper understanding of the context.”
