We keep transforming the future of industry and academia. Thanks to the effort and guidance of many people involved around the world in making it possible. This year, the keynote talks were the charge of NVIDIA leaders, followed by more exciting events. This is how the HPC community celebrated their milestones.
The Vice President of Omniverse and Simulation Technology at NVIDIA, Rev Lebaredian, presented the Digital Work they have been working on using different open-source applications in modern manufacturing industries, a fantastic example was presented shortly afterwards by Michele Melchiorre from BMW presenting digital twins of manufacturing facilities. He also emphasised the importance of AI to get more accurate calculations to simulate real world complexity.
The house was full and I was glad to see that tech was incredibly used when the Q&A through the ISC app. In real time, the best questions were up-voted in order to be asked to the keynote speakers.
Immediately after the first break, the fire alarmed rang and we all had to evacuate the building. I think more tweets were posted due to this incident, comments such as “cluster on fire?” were shared on the media.
The Nobel Prize of HPC
I have the sensation the greatest winners of the event were ORNL and Jack Dongarra from the University of Tennessee! It was a big ovation from the audience. I had the chance to interact with him a couple of times and I think he is an incredible person! Congratulations again!
The top 500 list
Frontier at ORNL beated the exaflops this year! The ORNL director revealed the difficulties they had since 2020 during COVID lockdown to make it. It was challenging to support Frontier and SUMMIT in production at the same time. The top tree supercomputers are reaching the exascale barrier. Neat work also presented by the LUMI team!
Outstanding stands were ready today at 3pm! HPC industry and organisations offered novelty and useful gifts this time such as luggage tags and personalised mat for coffee cups. Some of them are offering everyday the opportunity to win a Lego Star Wars Helmet :O
Food and icecream
Attendees are still enjoying the delicious food served in “batch containers?” 🙂
Chocolate ice-creams were able at any time today!
Thanks for all the good vibes HPC people! Today was a very long and very excited day!
