Starting in October 2021, the Flemish Supercomputer Center (Vlaams Supercomputer Centrum – VSC) is launching its Lunch Sessions. These two-hour online sessions are scheduled during the lunch break and include two use cases followed by a presentation on the topic at hand by VSC, plus a Q&A from the audience. The first Lunch Session takes place on Thursday 7 October 2021, from 12:00 PM to 1:45 PM CEST. This session will focus on High-performance computing (HPC) meets artificial intelligence (AI), i.e., the ability of a machine to display human-like capabilities such as reasoning, learning, planning and creativity.
During the Lunch Session on AI, two use cases will be presented. One on AI for the manufacturing industry by Kurt De Grave of Flanders Make and another on AI and materials research, presented by Michael Sluydts of ePotentia. Kenneth Hoste of VSC/UGent will then talk about AI and GPUs. Who should participate? This event is relevant for scientific and industrial researchers, HPC enthusiasts and governmental officials. Participation is free, but registration is mandatory.
VSC is a partnership between the five Flemish universities and their university associations and is the high-performance research computing environment of Flanders. VSC bundles know-how in scientific and technical computing (including high performance computing, high throughput computing, cloud computing and data processing) in Flanders and provides services to researchers, industry, and the government. The VSC is managed by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO).
