VIRTUAL EVENT | EST Timezone
April 2023

“This [AI Hardware] summit is a great place where lots of people interested in AI can come together, exchange ideas, and work out how to make the technology better. There’s a synergistic effect at these summits that is really amazing and that powers the entire industry.”

John L. Hennessy, Chairman, Alphabet Inc.

Why Attend

The AI Systems Summit, Research brings together researchers, engineers and architects from universities, HPC centers, and national labs worldwide to address the design and deployment of AI systems for scientific purposes. The summit is free to attend for attendees from public research institutions.

The summit tackles the challenges of designing and integrating HPC systems that can support ever larger and more complex AI and scientific workloads. This year’s event will dissect results from MLPerf benchmarking submissions from institutions such as NERSC, ANL, FZJ and NCSA, and discuss approaches to systems heterogeneity and design for AI. The event will also cover augmenting simulation workloads with AI, debate the merits of GPU-based architectures vs. dataflow architectures, and discuss the limitations of current AI technology for science. Finally, the summit will feature focused case studies from research institutions who are building AI capabilities into their HPC centers.

At PNNL, the ASCR portfolio includes over a dozen R&D projects in computer science, applied mathematics, networking, and computational modeling and simulation. Jim also serves as the lead of the Data-Model Convergence Initiative, a lab-wide 5 year investment to develop new computer science capabilities that support integration of scientific high performance computing and data analytics computing paradigms. Through a co-design process, challenge problems that integrate scientific modeling and simulation, domain-aware machine learning, and graph analytics are used to drive the development of a supporting system software stack that maps these heterogeneous applications to conceptual designs for System-on-Chip (SoC) heterogeneous processors. A key element of this converged computing strategy is to support PNNL objectives in accelerating scientific discovery, and real time control of the power grid. Jim's prior connections to other government agencies transferred to PNNL with him and has led to PNNL and Jim's engagement in several national security programs.

Prior to joining PNNL, Jim served as the a member of the initial DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) leadership team from 2015-2017. Jim's role was the Director of ECP's hardware technology focus area. His primary role and responsibility was the development and definition of the DOE ECP's hardware R&D strategy. The key elements of the strategy included: 1) Establish a portfolio of PathForward vendor-led hardware R&D projects for component, node and system architecture design, and 2) Create a Design Space Evaluation team to provide ECP with independent architectural analysis of the PathForward vendors' designs and the ability to facilitate co-design communication among the PathForward vendors and the ECP's application and system software development teams.

I want to push the boundaries of what we can do with Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods. I pursue three directions: more prior knowledge, more compute and more fascinating questions.
Prior knowledge can look very different. It can be unlabelled or or weakly labelled data (e.g. noisy or unrelated labels), physical equations or symmetries, input data statistics or something completely different and requires the AI method to be tailored to it. The large amounts of related data or a large model complexity require using the game-changing capabilities of the Jülich Supercomputing Center. Integrating prior knowledge can vastly improve the data efficiency and allows researchers to apply AI methods to even more interesting, intriguing and impactful applications from all fields of science and engineering.
