Unleashing Faster and More Efficient AI Research with the University of Surrey

Presented by

Helen Cooper, University of Surrey | Colin Gallagher, WEKA

About this talk

To support its mission of being a global leader in research and innovation, the University of Surrey has long invested in state-of-the-art Computer Vision and AI research. The cutting-edge experimental platforms they use, combined with the advent of big data and AI, have increased the amount of data produced and the need to support I/O heavy workloads. At this informal fireside chat, please join Helen Cooper, Lab Facilities Manager, from the Surrey Institute for People-Centred AI, as she shares how they are: - Improving the experience for researchers by enabling a huge quantity of data to be accessed and processed up to 8x faster, without penalties for using small files - Reducing their technical debt by enabling researchers to focus on the algorithms instead of the computer architecture - Lowering their environmental impact by making more efficient use of their GPUs - Tackling data lifecycle management challenges and eliminating the need for frequent tuning

We believe data-driven organisations shouldn’t have to choose between speed, simplicity, scale, sustainability, or seamless data portability. In the cloud and AI era, these should be foundational elements to every data environment – not points of compromise. That’s why we’re building an entirely new data management approach designed to support next-generation workloads flawlessly.
