At this year's Altair HPC Summit, experts managing and leveraging some of the world's leading HPC systems shared how they're accounting for all-new dimensions like hybrid and cloud resources, GPUs, software and I/O performance, and how their teams are tapping new trends in machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize for both time and cost to solution. Below is the collection of presentations from the Altair HPC Summit 2021 virtual event.
We are seeing a mass increase in data, coming at us from all directions. Whether you are running AI-enhanced HPC applications on-premises or HPC workloads in the cloud, you need platforms and solutions that will offer the performance, scalability, and flexibility to redefine what’s possible with HPC.
Gartner predicts that AI will become more operationalized by 2024. As companies find more ways to deploy AI, the resource requirement for training data-heavy models will yield increased demand for HPC infrastructure in the cloud. In this panel we speak with chip industry leaders and cloud service providers to get their take on the impact and trends they are seeing from companies who are taking an AI-first approach and how it’s driving the move to the cloud.
This is the era of data. Advances in today’s technological front with HPC infrastructure, Artificial Intelligence, Cloudification, Data analytics are coalescing to provide a source of key competitive differentiation to organizations uniquely positioned to leverage this data influx strategically, converting it from merely information to insights. This presentation will highlight the innovations in the industry and at Intel with its portfolio of products, technologies that will redefine the world of compute.
