AI Storms Top Supercomputing Show – NVIDIA Brings Talks, Training, Demos, and More to ISC

by Jens Neuschäfer

This is what smart people do for fun.

Detecting gravitational waves millions of light years away, in real time. Powering computationally fast quantum mechanical simulations at high accuracy and low cost. Proving the feasibility of fusion as a source of renewable clean energy.

Of course, it doesn’t take a supercomputer to figure out that high-performance computing is much more than just fun. Thanks to AI, HPC now matters more than ever.

That’s why next week’s International Supercomputing Conference — from June 24 to 28 in Frankfurt — will feature more content than ever, much of it focused on the collision of artificial intelligence and high-performance computing.

Attendees can train up on deep learning in workshops. They’ll crowd into panels focused on the convergence of AI and HPC. They’ll take part in a day dedicated to how machine learning transforms high-performance computing.

At our booth: Visit the NVIDIA booth (#1040) where we’ll be featuring:

  • Talks led by industry leaders, covering the most important topics in HPC and AI. Join us at the NVIDIA booth theatre to see:
  • NVIDIA’s Steve Oberlin speaking on AI and HPC. Monday, June 25, 4 p.m.
  • NVIDIA’s Marc Hamilton discussing DGX-2 and NVSwitch. Monday, June 25, 5 p.m.
  • Prof. Dirk Pleiter, of Jülich Supercomputing Centre, presenting on “Bringing Neuroscience to HPC.” Tuesday, June 26, 11:30 a.m.
  • Jack Wells, of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, presenting “Summit Science Stories.” Wednesday, June 27, 1:30 p.m.
  • Thrilling demos and displays including NVIDIA’s new DGX-2, NVIDIA GPU Cloud and more.
  • Networking with several dozen NVIDIA ecosystem partners and experts through the new Volta Experience.
  • A chance to get your hands on the renowned NVIDIA ruler, as well as a VIP discount code for GTC Europe 2018.

At the show: Beyond our booth, you’ll find our story woven into workshops and presentations throughout ISC:
