SC21 Keynote: Igniting the Next Era of Supercomputing for All

Abstract

High Performance Computing is the foundation of research and discovery that improves the lives of every human on the planet. As we enter the Exascale era, the combination of accelerated and high performance computing, AI and deep learning has resulted in an exponential growth of data and the need for an unprecedented pace of innovation. From converged AI and HPC workloads to multipurpose systems to diverse architectures, we’re asking more of our HPC systems than ever before. Join Intel at SC21 and learn about our HPC strategy and new innovations including the latest Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, data center GPUs and powerful software tools. Together, let's accelerate the next era of innovation in HPC.
