Show Notes

In this Big Compute Podcast episode, Gabriel Broner hosts Dave Turek, Vice President of HPC and Cognitive Systems at IBM, to discuss how AI enables the acceleration of HPC workflows. HPC has traditionally relied on simulation to represent the real world. Over the last several years AI has had significant growth due to innovation, growth in compute capacity and new architectures that have enabled it. HPC can benefit from AI techniques. One area of opportunity is to augment what people do in preparing simulations, analyzing results and deciding what simulation to run next. Another opportunity exists when we take a step back and analyze whether we can use AI techniques instead of simulations to solve the problem. We should think about AI as increasing the toolbox HPC users have. We should learn about them and incorporate them, as in the future the separation between HPC and AI may simply not exist.

A Cloud Startup Story (Part 2)

More than a decade ago, a young Joris Poort stepped into a small Silicon Valley apartment for the first time, ready to make an impact on the world.  What would follow was months of rejection from investors to his big idea of how to accelerate innovation in an up-and-coming new normal of cloud high performance computing.  In this second part of a 2-part series about how Rescale began, we hear how Joris persevered through challenges, was accepted into Y Combinator, and how he landed his first check, ultimately launching the business – and vision – he had for the world. ...

How COVID-19 Spreads Indoors

Welcome to Series #2 of the Big Compute Podcast!  Ever wondered how COVID-19 can spread through the air indoors?  Is 6 feet apart enough distance?  Do plexiglass barriers protect us?  We talk to undercover superhero, Jiarong Hong of the University of Minnesota, about his discoveries from simulating the movement of aerosol particles in different indoor spaces and how it can affect our everyday lives.  We also dive into his revealing research about what musical instruments may be spreading the virus more than others, including whether or not tuba concerts are worth the risk during this pandemic. ...

Tsimulating Tsunamis

In 1908, the largest earthquake ever recorded in Europe hit Southern Italy, wiping out the entire coastal town of Messina. Once the shaking had stopped, survivors thought they were safe until a massive tsunami followed minutes later. Even today, the exact cause of the tsunami is debated in the scientific community. In this episode, we talk to Dr. Lauren Schambach from the University of Rhode Island about what her computational simulations of the Messina tsunami have told her, and what that means for people living along the coastlines around the world. ...
