Neocortex: An Innovative Resource for Accelerating AI and HPC Development for Rapidly Evolving Research

 

Access and AI research begins on the new PSC Neocortex system, an advanced AI computing system for science and engineering that leverages Cerebras Systems’ revolutionary Wafer Scale Engine

 

Presented on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 3:00 – 4:00 pm (ET), by Paola Buitrago, Director of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), and Mei-Yu Wang (PSC).

This presentation gives an overview of Neocortex, a deployed NSF-funded AI supercomputer at PSC. Neocortex targets the acceleration of AI-powered scientific discovery by vastly shortening the time required for deep learning training and fostering greater integration of deep learning with scientific workflows. Our team recently demonstrated its capability to achieve ground-breaking results for high-performance computing applications such as computational fluid dynamics.

Neocortex democratizes access to game-changing computing power otherwise only available to tech giants for researchers. It inspires the research community to scale their AI-based research and integrate AI advances into their research workflows. Neocortex was deployed at the PSC in early 2021 and currently supports research in drug discovery, genomics, molecular dynamics, climate research, computational fluid dynamics, and many more.
