A recent press release states, “Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. today announced the Company has joined the Big Data Center (BDC) at the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). The collaboration between the two organizations is representative of Cray’s commitment to leverage its supercomputing expertise, technologies, and best practices to advance the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI), deep learning, and data-intensive computing. The BDC at NERSC was established with a goal of addressing the Department of Energy’s leading data-intensive science problems, harnessing the performance and scale of the Cray® XC40™ “Cori” supercomputer at NERSC.”

The release goes on, “The collaboration is focused on three fundamental areas that are key to unlocking the capabilities required for the most challenging data-intensive workflows: (1) Advancing the state-of-the-art in scalable, deep learning training algorithms, which is critical to the ability to train models as quickly as possible in an environment of ever-increasing data sizes and complexity; (2) Developing a framework for automated hyper-parameter tuning, which provides optimized training of deep learning models and maximizes a model’s predictive accuracy; (3) Exploring the use of deep learning techniques and applications against a diverse set of important scientific use cases, such as genomics and climate change, which broadens the range of scientific disciplines where advanced AI can have an impact.”
