Georgia (Gina) Tourassi, Ph.D., Director of the National Center for Computational Sciences and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility, in the ORNL Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate
Large-scale high-performance computing (HPC) environments present several opportunities but also challenges for performing data analytics and AI at scale. The diverse group of applications and AI models have widely varying scales, hardware preferences, and software requirements. In this talk I will introduce data driven scientific and technical innovations at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. I will also outline some of the challenges we see in operating complex scientific workflows to enable scientific discovery across domains.
