Pushing the Scale of Deep Learning at ISC

Jun 19, 2017 |

Deep learning is the latest and most compelling technology strategy to take aim at the decades-old “drowning in data/starving for insight” problem. But contrary to the commonly held notion, deep learning is more than a big data problem per se. Read more…

A New Benchmark for Big Data

Mar 6, 2013 |From the hallowed halls of the San Diego Supercomputer Center and into the more mainstream contexts of modern, data-laden enterprises, Chaitanya Baru is pulling the best of some core price and performance HPC and big data benchmarking elements together in an effort to standardize on...

Spelunking Shops and Supercomputers

Sep 28, 2012 |While this might come as a surprise to those outside the bubble, the majority of data that is collected within an enterprise setting is machine-generated. In other words, everything from operational data (messaging, web services, networking and other system data) to customer-facing systems and beyond. This week we talk with Splunk about its role in IT shops to supercomputers and... Read more…

World’s Top Data-Intensive Systems Unveiled

Jun 22, 2012 |This year at the International Supercomputing Conference in Germany, the list of the top data-intensive systems was revealed with heavy tie-ins to placements on the Top500 list of the world's fastest systems, entries from most of the national labs, and plenty of BlueGene action. The list of the top "big data" systems, called the Graph500, measures the performance of.... Read more…

Understanding Data Intensive Analysis on Large-Scale HPC Compute Systems

Jun 11, 2012 |Data intensive computing is an important and growing sector of scientific and commercial computing and places unique demands on computer architectures. While the demands are continuing to grow, most of present systems, and even planned future systems might not meet these computing needs very effectively. The majority of the world’s most powerful supercomputers are designed for running numerically intensive applications that can make efficient use of distributed memory. There are a number of factors that limit the utility of these systems for knowledge discovery and data mining. Read more…
