Update on the HPC AI Advisory Council

Setting the stage for the Stanford HPC Conference this week, Gilad Shainer describes how the HPC AI Advisory Council fosters innovation in the high performance computing community. “The HPC-AI Advisory Council’s mission is to bridge the gap between high-performance computing and Artificial Intelligence use and its potential, bring the beneficial capabilities of HPC and AI to new users for better research, education, innovation and product manufacturing, bring users the expertise needed to operate HPC and AI systems, provide application designers with the tools needed to enable parallel computing, and to strengthen the qualification and integration of HPC and AI system products.”

2020 Asia Student Cluster Competition Kick-Off

The ASC Student Supercomputer Challenge 2020 (ASC20) officially kicked off its event at SC19 in Denver, announcing the location and timeline for the upcoming event. “The ASC cluster competition is the biggest in the world with 20 university teams of undergraduate students competing to build the most powerful cluster while keeping power consumption under 3,000 watts. Inspur provides servers to the competitors who then configure their own cluster designs, put them together, and then optimize them and tune the benchmarking and HPC/AI applications for maximum performance.”

Team RACKLette from ETH Zurich steps up at the SC19 Student Cluster Competition

In this video from SC19, Thor Goebel and Emir Isman from ETH Zurich Team RACKLette describe their system configuration in the Student Cluster Competition. “We are a team of motivated students from ETH Zürich in Switzerland with various fields of interests around HPC. Together we work on optimizing and tuning computations on all the different levels down from the physical hardware up to algorithmic performance optimizations wherever possible.”
