AI has become an indispensable part of our lives and is helping to determine the future. For example in the development of self-driving cars, autonomous robot systems, new materials, improving climate models, or optimizing energy systems. Or in the fight against the corona pandemic. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) play a central role in this. Scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany have been doing research in these two fields for a very long time.
In order to further advance research, the Helmholtz Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Unit (HAICU) has now become the first location in Europe to commission the innovative NVIDIA DGX A100 AI system. The Steinbuch Center for Computing (SCC) at KIT has, therefore “made use of the Karlsruhe (HoreKa) high-performance computer currently being built at SCC” and has also entered into a partnership with the processor market leader NVIDIA. This will give access to the company’s most advanced AI systems.
