Working within the fields of HPC and AI? Come and join us! This is a new group for anyone involved in high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI). The group aim is to bring individuals together who are working on the convergence of HPC and AI from both an applied and theoretical basis to network, share insight and build partnerships across both industry and academia.
The group is organised from London, UK (so the majority of meet-ups will be based here) but we're hoping to hold additional meet-up's across the UK and internationally.
The group and meetups are vendor neutral and meetups will be specifically moderated to ensure attendees and presentations are not overly sales focused. Central topics to our discussions will be HPC, AI and machine learning, working with GPUs and computing within the cloud. New topics are very welcome - get suggesting!
On the eve of STFC's 2019 Computing Insight UK conference (CIUK) we'll be running a HPC & AI meetup between 6-8pm at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.
As with our London meetups, the format will be three invited guest speakers from industry/academia who will deliver short (approx 20 min) presentations on topics from the applied and theoretical sides of HPC and AI. Delighted to say our speakers in Manchester include:
1. Stig Telfer, CTO, StackHPC (www.stackhpc.com)
- Abstract to follow...
2. Darren Harkins, Staff Systems Engineer, Mellanox (www.mellanox.com)
- Darren will be presenting on using the network to accelerate machine learning: collectives and their role in AI.
Following the presentations there will be plenty of drinks, snacks and time to network with the rest of the meetup group as we all look forward to CIUK starting the following day.
Any questions, requests or ideas, please feel free to get in touch. We look forward to meeting you in Manchester!
Join us on Wednesday 11th December in New York where we'll be running an HPC & AI MeetUp between 6-7pm (with networking drinks to follow) at a location within lower Manhattan. Details of the location will be announced shortly.
As with other MeetUps, the format will be two/three invited guest speakers from industry/academia who will deliver short presentations covering HPC & AI theory, development and application. Networking drinks will follow.
A fuller agenda will be circulated later this year. Any questions, requests or ideas, please feel free to get in touch. We look forward to meeting you!
We're delighted to be running one of our regular HPC & AI meetups in Bristol with the kind support of our partners, Graphcore.
Following the same format as our London HPC & AI meetups, we will be welcoming three guest speakers from industry/academia who will deliver short 20 min presentations covering HPC & AI theory, development and application. Speakers will be confirmed shortly.
And for those of us that like a cold beer - we'll have networking drinks (including some award winning Icelandic Einstok beer) and snacks following the presentations.
We look forward to seeing you in Bristol!
