SDSC Technology Forum: Spinning up a Virtual, World-Class Supercomputer using Cloud Computing

May 28 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Webinar (PDT)

PRESENTATION download: HERE  In November 2019, SDSC researchers Frank Wuerthwein and Igor Sfiligoi marshaled the resources of multiple commercial cloud computing providers to assemble a massive virtual supercomputer to solve a real world, multi-messenger astronomy computing problem. The computing run over a weekend utilized almost 52,000 graphics computing units (GPUs) to achieve computational scale rivaling the world’s most powerful supercomputers. Bring your own coffee (BYOC) and join us to hear about this achievement and what it portends for the…

SDSC Technology Forum: Reconfigurable Dataflow Systems for Accelerating Machine Learning and HPC

June 18 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Webinar (PDT)

Webinar with SambaNova Systems In many applications, traditional software development is being replaced by machine learning generated models resulting in accuracy improvements and deployment advantages. This fundamental shift in how we develop software, referred to as Software 2.0, has provided dramatic improvements in application quality and ease of deployment. Additionally, these developments are enabling a new architectural approach where the applications “program” the hardware to provide optimal data flow, efficiency and performance. This talk will describe a full-stack design approach…
