Making Exascale Accessible To Everyone

Paid Post Intel has been at the forefront of democratizing high performance computing (HPC) for the past three decades, and the HPC leader is taking its efforts up several more notches with the Aurora exascale HPC and AI supercomputer being designed and built by Intel and Hewlett Packard Enterprise for Argonne National Laboratory.

This week at SC21 there will be more details disclosed about the Aurora system, which will be a cutting edge supercomputer with an excess of 2 exaflops of peak performance. That performance embodied in Aurora will be important for the advancement of research in a number of fields. But perhaps the most important thing about Aurora is that it will be available to accelerate complex hybrid HPC and AI applications at other educational, governmental, and enterprise institutions the world over.

On November 15 at 8 AM CT, Jeff McVeigh, general manager of the new Super Compute Group at Intel, delivered the keynote at SC21 entitled Igniting the Next Era of Supercomputing for All, available for viewing here.

Intel and its partners had a lot going on at SC21, including the oneAPI DevSummit, which featured hands-on tutorials, tech talks, and panels that cover the oneAPI programming model and that included experts from Argonne, NASA, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Lisbon, the University of Edinburgh, Codeplay, and more.

The Intel HPC + AI Pavillion opens up with the keynote from Jeff McVeigh and then includes dozens of tech talks, fireside chats, demos, and user stories on a wide range of HPC and AI topics, which you can see here.
