SDSC Picks Habana AI Training and Inference Chips for Voyager HPC System

The San Diego Supercomputer Center has selected Habana Labs’ AI training and inference accelerators for SDSC’s Voyager supercomputer, scheduled to be in service this fall. Habana said the HPC system, housed at the University of California, San Diego, will utilize Habana’s interconnectivity technology to scale AI training capacity with 336 Habana Gaudi training processors, which […]

XSEDE-Allocated Supercomputers, Comet and Stampede2, Accelerate Alzheimer’s Research

By Kimberly Mann Bruch, San Diego Supercomputer Center Communications Since 2009, Daniel Tward and his collaborators have analyzed more than 47,000 images of human brains via MRI Cloud — a gateway created to collect and share quantitative information from human brain images, including subtle changes in shape and cortical thickness. The latter was the topic of […]

MIT Researchers Develop Neural Networks for Computational Chemistry Using SDSC, PSC Supercomputers

Even though computational chemistry represents a challenging arena for machine learning, a team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) may have made it easier. Using Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego and Bridges at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, they succeeded in developing an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to detect electron correlation – the interaction between a system’s electrons – which is vital but expensive to calculate in quantum chemistry.
