Gordon Bell Prize Winners Leverage Machine Learning For Molecular Dynamics

For more than three decades, researchers have used a particular simulation method for molecular dynamics called Ab initio molecular dynamics, or AIMD, which has proven itself to be the method most accurate for analyzing how atoms and molecules move and interact over a fixed time period.

Taking Kubernetes Up To The Next Level

From the time Kubernetes was born in the labs at Google by engineers Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, and Craig McLuckie and then contributed to the open source community, it has become the de facto orchestration platform for containers, enabling easier development, scaling and movement of modern applications between on-premises datacenters and the cloud and between the multiple clouds – public and private – that enterprises are embracing.

InfiniBand Is Still Setting The Network Pace For HPC And AI

If this is the middle of November, even during a global pandemic, this must be the SC20 supercomputing conference and there either must be a speed bump that is being previewed for the InfiniBand interconnect commonly used for HPC and AI or it is actually shipping in systems.

The Many Facets Of Hybrid Supercomputing As Exascale Dawns

There may not be a lot of new systems on the November 2020 edition of the Top500 rankings of supercomputers, but there has been a bunch of upgrades and system tunings of machines that have been recently added, expanding their performance, as well as a handful of new machines that are interesting in their own right.

AMD At A Tipping Point With Instinct MI100 GPU Accelerators

It is hard enough to chase one competitor. Imagine how hard it is to chase two different ones in different but complementary markets while at the same time those two competitors are thinking about fighting each other in those two different markets and thus bringing even more intense competitive pressure on both fronts.

Intel’s First Discrete Xe Server GPU Aimed At Hyperscalers

We have been waiting for years to see the first discrete Xe GPU from Intel that is aimed at the datacenter, and as it turns out, the first one is not the heavy compute engine we have been anticipating, but rather a souped up version of the Iris Xe LP and Iris Max Xe LP graphics cards that were launch at the end of October, which themselves are essentially the GPU extracted from the hybrid CPU-GPU “Tiger Lake” Core i9 processors for PC clients.

South Korea Funds First Supercomputing CPU Designed for AI, HPC

Researchers at South Korea’s Electronics and Telecommunications Institute (ETRI), in conjunction with Arm, are one step closer to designing and deploying a native CPU that can handle double-precision supercomputing applications and low-precision, low-power AI inference.

176 Steps Closer To The Mythical All-Flash Datacenter

We have nothing against disk drives. Seriously. And in fact, we are amazed at the amount of innovation that continues to go into the last electromechanical device still in use in computing, which from a commercial standpoint started out with the tabulating machines created by Herman Hollerith in 1884 and used to process the 1890 census in the United States, thus laying the foundation of International Machines Machines.
