What Will GPU Accelerated AI Lend to Traditional Supercomputing?

June 20, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth This week at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC ’16) we are expecting a wave of vendors and high performance computing pros to blur the borders between traditional supercomputing and what is around the corner on the application front—artificial intelligence and machine learning. For some, merging those two areas is a stretch, but for others, particularly GPU maker, Nvidia, the story is far more direct since much of the recent deep learning work has hinged on GPUs for training of neural networks and machine learning algorithms. We have written extensively over the last year about how GPUs are being used in both deep learning and in HPC separately, but we might soon arrive at a fuller merger between the two areas, at least from a systems…
