Reimagining The Future With High-Performance Computing (HPC)


Date: 20 October 2021, Wednesday 

Time: 11.am to 12.30pm

Location: Virtual Session via Zoom


What is this about?

The speed and need to digitalise a business has gathered greater momentum and urgency. Coupled with an exponentially increasing volume of data, the ability to achieve data insights and uncover solutions with agility has now become more critical.


As one of IMDA’s technology partners, National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC) Singapore is focused on enabling the business community with the required resources to accelerate their innovation journey.


Find out more by joining us in the webinar and learn from our panel of experts on how they have leveraged on HPC to drive innovations with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Use cases on actual projects undertaken will also be discussed during the session.


Key takeaways:

- Improving AI applications in the design of safer autonomous vehicles

- Accelerate and optimise AI model training with speed and accuracy

- NSCC HPC resource pack for innovators
