Pandemic Accelerates the Scale Out by Pranav Mehta, IntelThe current pandemic has accelerated the need for scientific and technological advances in certain end user visible applications and underlying cyberinfrastructures to support them. This talk will look at some of these vertical use cases and outline challenges and possible solution approaches, based on our internal and collaborative research results, to satisfy the critical societal needs.

HPC Gives Computers a Voice by Luke Wilson, DellThe dream of having a conversation with your computer is fast becoming a reality. But how are these voices produced? Neural networks have transformed voice synthesis, replacing artificial sounding voice clips with smooth, natural voices generated entirely by computer. Scale-out parallelism and acceleration are driving down the time to create these voice models from months to hours, turning the dream of conversational computers into a reality even faster.
