Discoveries When Big Data, AI and HPC Converge

Feedback form is now closed.
This talk is about the convergence of high performance computing (HPC) technologies for Big Data problems and artificial intelligence workflows. The convergence achieved with the combination of the HPC interconnect, the application of HPC best practices and communication collectives: (i) enables the ability to process 1000x bigger graph datasets up to 100x faster than competing tools on commodity hardware (i.e. GraphX) (ii) provides a 2-26x speed-up on matrix factorization workloads compared to cloud-friendly Apache Spark (iii) promises >90% scaling efficiency on deep learning workloads (i.e. potential reduction in training time from days to hours). These benchmark results when assembled into data science workflows enable creative applications for discovery of domain-specific insights.

We will demonstrate the convergence  of HPC and AI for Big Data that is capable of : (i) speeding-up ad-hoc searches (e.g. a query-able semantic database) and graph-theoretic mining (e.g. graph-theoretic algorithms) (ii) scaling unsupervised machine learning to massive data sizes and (iii) providing efficiency with end-to-end production-ready deep learning workflows. When made to work seamlessly, we will show examples of (i) “explainable” artificial intelligence platform that augments clinical/medical researchers;  (ii) a hypothesis generation tool that discovered the relationship between beta-blocker treatment and diabetic retinopathy; (iii) knowledge browser that revealed xylene as an environmental cancer-causing carcinogen (iv) pathway analysis toward discovery of genes as synergistic prediction markers and potential targets with MAPK/ERK inhibitors for the treatment of melanoma.
