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 practitioners know that developing and training — while computationally intensive — is not the most significant time element in any AI project. Data preparation and time spent on data engineering tasks — acquisition, cleansing, labeling and more — can often represent the most labor-intensive and time-consuming project phases. In this informative webinar, you’ll learn why IT and data science teams should adopt and use a workflow-oriented approach when evaluating and selecting solutions for AI projects.
Wednesday, 9/12, 9 a.m. PT: Lustre® Parallel File System: Why You Should Relook at It for Your Next HPC Project
Cray storage experts will take you through a refresher course on parallel file systems — Lustre in particular — and discuss how it can benefit your next HPC project, with a special focus on academia.
Thursday, 9/13, 9 a.m. PT: Maximize the Performance of Your HPC Cluster with AMD Processors Using the Cray Programming Environment
Today’s HPC workloads require a reliable, scalable and heterogeneous software suite in order to maximize the performance and results of complex, data-intensive applications. In this webinar, we’ll look at the comprehensive Cray Programming Environment for our Cray® CS500™ cluster line with AMD processors.
Tuesday, 9/25, 9 a.m. PT: Don’t Make the Wrong Choices When Building Your AI Infrastructure
Every successful IT project involves a series of choices, and AI projects are no different. But unlike most enterprise applications, where the architecture and tools are well established, successful AI applications depend on rapidly advancing open-source tools and a mix of CPU- and GPU-based systems. Making the wrong tool or system choice can lead to longer development and implementation times, or worse, project failure. In this informative webinar, you’ll learn what to watch out for, and why choosing the right hardware and software for AI workflows provides the best way for IT and data science teams to deliver on the promise of AI-enabled applications.
Each webinar will be in a “radio show” format with our hosts interviewing industry experts on each topic. We look forward to your joining us. Register now to save your spot.
