Bloomsbury AI Uses Cray Tech to Top Artificial Intelligence Record

One of our initiatives here at Cray is to provide supercomputer resources so innovators can advance artificial intelligence in its many forms — and, ultimately, human understanding. One way that we do this is through a partnership with the UK innovation center Digital Catapult and its Machine Intelligence Garage program. Machine Intelligence Garage helps businesses access the computation power and expertise they need to develop and build machine learning and artificial intelligence solutions. As part of this partnership, one of the program participants, Bloomsbury AI, used a Cray® CS-Storm™ system in the Cray Accel AI™ lab to train and optimize the deep learning models within Cape, an open-source technology that can answer ...

Boost Your HPC & AI Knowledge with Fall Learning Series Webinars

Summer is almost over and fall is the perfect time to refocus, reengage, and reinvest in learning how to overcome some of your biggest HPC challenges. To help get you on track, Cray is offering a September Learning Series of webinars designed to address four of the most frequently asked questions we get in areas ranging from artificial intelligence to storage and compute to software. Join us for any — or all — of the sessions to learn, ask questions and engage with industry thought leaders. Tuesday, 9/11, 9 a.m. PT: The Three Steps: Focusing on Workflow for Successful AI Projects As artificial intelligence (AI) has gained mainstream acceptance, there's been a lot of focus on the systems used to develop and train models. But ... [ Read More ]

Live Chat – AI: Make the Right Choices

As artificial intelligence continues to gain traction as a transformational set of technologies, IT teams and data science teams are tasked with implementing AI projects as soon as possible. At the same time, there are a plethora of reasons why AI projects can go awry (here, here, here, here, here, here and here). Most involve choices: the right use case; the right data; the right infrastructure, frameworks and tools. Join us Tuesday, August 21, for a live online chat, “AI: Make the Right Choices,” to learn about and discuss some of the right choices to make when planning your AI application project. You can easily participate using a Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook account. Hear from industry experts at Cray who are working with users ... [ Read More ]

Your Own Supercomputer — in the Azure Cloud

Your organization relies on technology for a competitive advantage. You need fast, reliable performance. But high-performance computing can be a big investment, and challenging to manage as part of your IT infrastructure. Cray and Microsoft make it easy — and you get Cray supercomputing in the Microsoft Azure cloud. This convergence of supercomputing capabilities and the ease of cloud management enables disruptive innovation for new categories of companies. It alleviates the management burden and reduces barriers of entry to HPC. Supercomputing is no longer out of reach for smaller enterprises and organizations that can’t or don’t want to maintain their own datacenters. Get details about Cray in the cloud in this white paper by ... [ Read More ]

Why We Changed Our Approach to Artificial Intelligence

Like you, we’re working on how to approach artificial intelligence (AI). We all know it’s here, it’s growing and it’s not a passing trend. We could debate all day over how fast and far the use of AI will spread. But let’s set that discussion aside and focus on what we’re actually seeing when we’re out talking to customers and prospects — and then what we’re doing with that information. What we’re seeing isn’t entirely what we anticipated when we announced our Cray Accel AI fast start solutions last November. At that point, we knew we had customers whose AI plans ranged from “just starting out” with machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) to those running production-level AI applications with concerns about future growth. ...
