Genomic modeling using high performance computing is beginning to prove its worth in the fight against the 2019 SARS-COV-2 (covid-19) pandemic. Using supercomputing resources at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), researchers have found a specific gene expression profile that makes patients particularly susceptible to some of the worst effects of the virus. This genomic pattern appears to be tied to biological pathways that explain many of the symptoms encountered by patients struggling to overcome the infection. As a result of this work, clinicians may be able to exploit a set of existing drugs to treat high-risk covid-19 patients.
The AI Hardware Summit: A Recap
Alex Norton, Bob Sorensen, Steve Conway and Earl Joseph
This inaugural, two-day AI Hardware summit held in Mountain View, California, at the Computer History Museum, brought together researchers, vendors, and users to explore the development of the AI ecosystem from a hardware perspective. Large companies, startups, and analysts joined to hear over 30 speakers and roundtables. Although the overall theme was all AI hardware, many of the presentations focused on AI processors and the work that is being done to design hardware to further the development of the evolving and growing field of AI, machine learning, and deep learning.
