Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a pillar of today’s technological world, offering solutions that enable better and more accurate decisions based on the massive amounts of data being collected. AI encompasses a wide range of trends and use cases that apply to nearly every industry today, ranging from security, finance, and image and voice recognition, to self-driving cars and smart cities.
High Performance Computing (HPC) enables universities, research laboratories and commercial vendors to develop the products and services of tomorrow – from safer cars and airplanes, to accurate weather and storm prediction, to finding new cures, and much more. Since HPC and AI applications share the same underlying technologies and infrastructures, new developments in HPC are immediately being adopted for AI, and vice versa.
The APAC HPC-AI competition encourages international teams in the APAC region to showcase their HPC and AI expertise in a friendly yet spirited competition that builds critical skills, professional relationships, competitive spirits and lifelong comraderies.
Co-organized by the HPC-AI Advisory Council (a leading organization for high-performance computing and artificial intelligence research, outreach and education) and the Singapore National Supercomputing Center, the 2019 APAC HPC-AI Competition will start on March 12, 2019 and continue through until July 26, 201
