The insideHPC blog reports that a team of computational scientists from Lawrence Berkeley and Oak Ridge national laboratories, and engineers from NVIDIA has demonstrated an exascale-class deep learning application that has for the first time broken the exaop barrier.
Plenty of people around the world got new gadgets Friday, but one in Eastern Tennessee stands out. Summit, a new supercomputer unveiled at Oak Ridge National Lab is, unofficially for now, the most powerful calculating machine on the planet.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory has begun to install Summit. Besides providing unprecedented amounts of computational capacity for traditional high-performance computing applications, it will offer the largest platform in the world for deep learning workloads.
