HPC is Great for AI, But What Does Supercomputing Stand to Gain?

June 23, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth As we have written about extensively here at The Next Platform, there is no shortage of use cases in deep learning and machine learning where HPC hardware and software approaches have bled over to power next generation applications in image, speech, video, and other classification and learning tasks. Since we focus on high performance computing systems here in their many forms, that trend has been exciting to follow, particularly watching GPU computing and matrix math-based workloads find a home outside of the traditional scientific supercomputing center. This widened attention has been good for HPC as well since it has brought new attention to the field, which many outside tend to think of as academic (even if many of us know it is far broader than…
