Startup has Big Goals and Bold Claim
“Seagate is the newest member of the Innovations for Digital Infrastructure (I4DI), a partnership of innovative global technology leaders that are developing European-based supercomputing solutions to advance the region’s capabilities in solving the performance, power and efficiency issues challenging the industry today. It joins founding members PosAm, Towercom and Tachyum, and thus the partnership with SAV (Slovak Academy of Sciences) and MIRRI SR (Ministry of Investment, Regional Development and Informatization of the Slovak Republic) within National Supercomputing Centre (NSCC)…”
..."The goal of NSCC is not just to build one supercomputer, but to create an ecosystem of companies and researchers, and make available the already existing HPC capabilities to them, " said Radoslav Repa, vice-chairman of the NSCC board and Director General of the Section of Digital Agenda at MIRRI SR. Adrián Vycital from I4DI predicts that NSCC can use one of the fastest microchips in the world currently being developed by Tachyum…
"…Prodigy's unique attributes set the conditions to create a computing architecture fully aligned with the operational and strategic imperatives of our national strategy…"
"...This Slovakian universal computing center will showcase the world’s first universal processor Prodigy, capable of switching seamlessly among hyperscale, AI and HPC workloads..."
"…Data center-hosted artificial intelligence is rapidly proliferating in both government and commercial markets, and while it's an exciting time for AI, only a narrow set of applications is being addressed, primarily limited to neural networks based on convolutional approach…"
"...Given there are currently 10 billion internet-connected devices, doubling that to 20 billion will require massive increases to our data center infrastructure, which will massively increase our electricity consumption..."
