ALCF Data Science Program selects projects for 2021-2022
The ALCF Data Science Program has awarded computing time and resources to four projects that will use novel AI and data science techniques to pursue data-driven discoveries.
ALCF's Corey Adams was one of six Argonne National Laboratory researchers to receive a DOE Early Career Research Program Award. Congrats to Corey and the 83 scientists across the country recognized with this prestigious award!
At the CogX Festival on June 16, 2021, ALCF's Venkat Vishwanath will join researchers from SambaNova Systems for a session titled "Supercharging science: How organisations can drive innovation with AI." The session will cover how ALCF is using novel AI architectures, like SambaNova, to scale AI model performance for science.
In addition to their roles at the ALCF, Michael Papka and Joe Insley serve as professors at Northern Illinois University. Students in their data visualization courses have been teaming up with WNIJ to help tell their stories with graphs, maps and other data visualizations.
This week's IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS) is a great place to hear about the latest research in parallel computing. If you're attending virtually, be sure to check out these paper presentations from ALCF researchers.
Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and Illinois Institute of Technology were recognized with a best paper award at this week's IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2021 symposium for their study "DLIO: A Data-Centric Benchmark for Scientific Deep Learning Applications." The team developed a new benchmark for deep learning applications to emulate their data access patterns, identify I/O bottlenecks, and evaluate performance optimizations at scale with a diverse set of science applications on the ALCF's Theta supercomputer. Congratulations to the authors Hariharan Devarajan, Huihuo Zheng, Anthony Kougkas, Xian-He Sun, and Venkatram Vishwanath!
The 2021 Lustre User Group (LUG) conference will be held virtually May 19-20, 2021. The annual event will feature several talks on the latest Lustre developments, including "Lustre at Scale: ALCF Update” presented by ALCF's Alex Kulyavtsev and Gordon McPheeters on Wednesday, May 19.
In a recent study published in IEEE's Computing in Science and Engineering, Argonne National Laboratory's Murali Emani, Venkatram Vishwanath, Corey Adams, Michael Papka, and Rick Stevens collaborated with researchers from SambaNova Systems to explore how the ALCF's new SambaNova DataScale platform can help accelerate AI for science workloads.
We kicked off the annual ALCF Computational Performance Workshop today. We’re looking forward to working with current and prospective ALCF users to help them boost application performance on our supercomputing resources!
We partnered with NVIDIA last week to host the largest virtual GPU Hackathon yet. The 13 participating teams made significant progress in porting and optimizing a wide variety of applications to run on the ALCF’s ThetaGPU system.
In the latest episode of Intel’s Code Together podcast, ALCF’s Kevin Harms and Codeplay Software’s Ruymán Reyes Castro discuss the collaboration with NERSC to enhance the LLVM-based DPC++ open source compiler, the key role of open communities in furthering innovation, fostering a strong ecosystem around SYCL and DPC++, and more.
