Heterogeneous Design Approaches to the Convergence of HPC and AI
Aaron Melin, Director FAE, Supermicro
About this talk
The convergence of AI and HPC is leading to the need to handle more diverse workloads in High Performance systems. This increase in diversity of demanding workloads coupled with the expanding landscape of available accelerators can be a challenge for designing application optimized HPC systems. We will explore the benefits of designing HPC systems with heterogeneous accelerator technologies to make the marriage of AI and HPC faster and more efficient. We will take a practical look at what can be achieved today and emerging technologies that will drive the HPC designs of the future.
