Parallel sessions - High Performance Computing for AI

11/17/2020 | 10:15 - 12:15 | Laval Virtual


- Time schedule in France & Germany :  10:15 to 12:15
- Time schedule in Japan : 18:15 to 20:15
The development of efficient AI models relies not only on a large volume of data to learn from, but also on
powerful computational resources to process those data. In this context, increasingly high-performance computers are being designed with a focus on serving AI applications, including exascale applications dedicated to weather forecasts, astronomy, petroleum prospecting and or financial market predictions.

This session will discuss how and why AI development can leverage high-performance computing as well as how high-performance computing can benefit from AI, and how international co-operation can help to optimise the development and the use of these supercomputers.

What advantages do Japan, France and Germany have in working together (i.e. scientists, companies, political decision-makers, etc.) on this subject? Why? How can we improve co-operation and what are the current brakes and deadlocks?
