ALCF deploys powerful testbed to advance AI for science
Available to researchers in 2022, the ALCF AI Testbed will provide access to leading-edge AI platforms to support pioneering research at the intersection of AI and HPC.
Have a computationally intensive science project that could benefit from supercomputing resources at ALCF, OLCF, and NERSC? The U.S. Department of Energy's ASCR Leadership Computing Challenge (ALCC) is now seeking proposals for 2022-2023. Pre-proposals are due December 17, 2021.
Congratulations to ALCF's Kevin Brown for being named Argonne National Laboratory's first Walter Massey Fellow! “I want to eventually not only do research, but to be the kind of scientist who enables many others to make breakthroughs," says Brown.
Congrats to Argonne National Laboratory researchers and collaborators for being recognized with 5 HPCwire Awards at SC21 this week! Awards included Outstanding Leadership in HPC (Valerie Taylor), Best Use of HPC in Industry, Best Use of High Performance Data Analytics & AI (x2), Best Use of HPC in Physical Sciences
Team Intelligent Resolution will present their Gordon Bell Prize-nominated study of the SARS-CoV-2 replication mechanism at 2:30 pm (CT) today at SC21. The multi-institutional team, which includes several Argonne National Laboratory researchers, leveraged AI and supercomputing resources at ALCF, OLCF, NERSC, and TACC to enable their groundbreaking study.
As part of the SC21 festivities, Cerebras Systems hosted a fireside chat with ALCF's Venkat Vishwanath to discuss Argonne National Laboratory's work with the company, the ALCF AI Testbed, and the collaborative effort nominated for a Gordon Bell Special Prize for HPC-Based COVID-19 Research.
Today, MLCommons released new results for MLPerf HPC v1.0, a machine learning training performance benchmark suite for high-performance computing. "These benchmarks are aimed at measuring the full capabilities of modern supercomputers," said ALCF's Murali Emani, who serves as co-chair of the MLPerf HPC Working Group. "This iteration of MLPerf HPC will help guide upcoming exascale systems for emerging machine learning workloads such as AI for science applications."
Exciting day for Argonne National Laboratory's new Polaris testbed system! It debuted at No. 12 on the Top500 list of the world's most powerful supercomputers. Polaris will also make its debut as a resource for the 2022 INCITE program, supporting 9 of the newly announced awards.
Today at 1pm (CT), Intel is hosting a live Twitter chat focused on our upcoming exascale supercomputer, Aurora. Experts from ALCF, Intel and HPE will discuss how Aurora will advance science in the exascale era. Be sure to join the conversation!
Join us next week at SC21! More than 90 Argonne National Laboratory researchers will be contributing to virtual conference activities on topics ranging from AI and exascale technologies to HPC software and quantum computing.
On Sunday, November 14, Intel's oneAPI DevSummit at SC21 will feature hands-on tutorials, tech talks, panels, and lightning talks focused on the latest innovations with oneAPI. ALCF researchers will be contributing sessions such as Global Experts on eXtreme Performance Panel (David Martin), The Great CEED Bake-off: DPC++ Edition (Kris Rowe, Saumil Sudhir Patel), and Getting Ready for the Aurora exascale supercomputer using Intel Advisor Roofline on Intel CPUs and GPUs (JaeHyuk Kwack).
