Video: The Challenge of Heterogeneous Compute & Memory Systems

Mike Ignatowski from AMD gave this talk at the Rice Oil & Gas conference. “We have reached the point where further improvements in CMOS technology and CPU architecture are producing diminishing benefits at increasing costs. Fortunately, there is a great deal of room for improvement with specialized processing, including GPUs and other emerging accelerators. In addition, there are exciting new developments in memory technology and architecture coming down the development pipeline.”

Video: Convergence of AI & HPC

Thor Sewell from Intel gave this talk at the Rice Oil & Gas conference. “We are seeing the exciting convergence of artificial intelligence and modeling & simulation workflows as well as the movement towards cloud computing and Exascale. This session will cover these significant trends, the technical challenges that must be overcome, and how to prepare for this next level of computing.”

Panel Discussion: Delivering Exascale Computing for the Oil and Gas Industry

In this video from the 2018 Rice Oil & Gas Conference, Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research leads a panel discussion on Exascale computing. “High-end computing and information technology continues to stand out across the industry as a critical business enabler and differentiator with a relatively well understood return on investment. However, challenges such as constantly changing technology landscape, increasing focus on software and software innovation, and escalating concerns around workforce development still remain.”
