Deep Learning Meets HPC at ISC 2017

by Jens Neuschäfer

Understand the brain’s workings by analyzing cerebral slices. Use 3D heart models to develop better treatments, while lowering reliance on animal experiments. Study how dark matter will form when Andromeda galaxy and Milky Way collide.

These are just a few of the challenges researchers are tackling using supercomputers, AI and big data.

GPUs are at the center of this work. Find out how at NVIDIA’s booth at the International Supercomputing Conference, in Frankfurt, June 19-22.

Some ISC 2017 highlights:

  • Experience the NVIDIA Tesla Accelerated Computing platform, the most pervasive and accessible HPC platform. See our new HPC products and technologies and talk with NVIDIA experts.
  • Check out the new NVIDIA DGX portfolio, based on our new Volta architecture, which provides the fastest path to deep learning.
  • Listen to the Featured Evening Talks from top speakers like Thomas Schulthess, of the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre, and Dirk Pleiter, of the Juelich Research Centre.
  • Attend the dedicated deep learning day on June 21, with speakers from Fraunhofer, DFKI, IBM Research, NVIDIA and others.
  • Learn at Deep Learning Institute sessions, sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, on  June 21, at the Mövenpick Hotel
  • And don’t miss the opening keynote from Microsoft Research’s Jennifer Tour Chayes on how massive datasets in networks can be used for collaborative filtering or drug development.

To learn how to harness the power of AI supercomputing for your data center, be sure to book your attendance at these events:

  • “The Convergence of HPC and Deep Learning,” with Axel Koehler, principal solution architect at NVIDIA. In the Exhibitor Forum, on June 20, 12:20-12:40 p.m.
  • “Dawn of Smart Supercomputing: How HPC & AI Are Engaging in a Virtuous Cycle That Will Leave Both Forever Transformed & Immeasurably Improved” with Steve Oberlin, CTO of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. In the Panorama 1 space on June 20, 11-11:30 a.m.
  • “Exascale System Developments (Architecture & Concepts),” a panel with John Danskin, VP of GPU Architecture at NVIDIA. In the Panorama 1 space on June 20, 1:45-3:15 p.m.
  • The third OpenACC User Group meeting on Tuesday, June 20, from 6-9 p.m., at the Marriott hotel.

Stay tuned on our handles @NVIDIAEU and @NVIDIADC to find out more about HPC and AI.

And visit our ISC booth (#730) for a chance to win great daily prizes like an NVIDIA SHIELD TV or tickets to GTC Europe 2017, Oct. 10-12, in Munich.
