"A New Era in HPC" – Bright to Present at Dell’s Virtual HPC Community Meeting

By Grant Gustafson | June 23, 2020

For many years, Bright has been a regular participant and contributor to Dell’s HPC Community Meetings, so I was saddened that these physical events – like all other HPC industry events – have been put on hold for the foreseeable future. They present such a great networking opportunity, enabling customers and partners to connect and giving us all a platform to share our vision for the HPC industry. With so many of us mostly home-based, I think we are all missing face-to-face contact with our HPC peers.

Navigating Virtual Data Centers for Autonomous Driving - Don’t Miss a Great Webinar

By Grant Gustafson | April 28, 2020

The development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) - also known as autonomous driving (AD) - relies heavily on massive amounts of real-world training data that consists of data gathered over the course of millions of miles of test driving and thousands of concurrent simulations. To be successful, car manufacturers must be able to simultaneously ingest thousands of concurrent streams of data, apply artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to Petabyte size training data sets, and archive these datasets for decades to come.

Join the Research Computing Technology Day all about Deep Learning and HPC

By Grant Gustafson | August 07, 2017

You've probably noticed an uptick in talk about machine learning and deep learning in your circle of HPC friends and colleagues. People are finding new ways to apply deep learning to all sorts of business problems and using HPC clusters to provide the compute power. But things are changing so rapidly that it's hard to keep up with all the new libraries, frameworks, architectures, and tools you can choose from.
