HiDALGO goes virtual at the HiPEAC conference

Tackling global challenges by use of HPC / HPDA and AI

At the HiPEAC 2021, on 18-20 January 2021
Workshop on Wednesday 20 January 2021, 13:00 – 18:30 h

Global challenges, like the spread of diseases, climate change, air pollution, forced migration, the spread of disinformation in social networks and the sustainable use of energy are more emergent and urgent than ever. The use of HPC, HPDA and Artificial Intelligence allows to accurately model and simulate the underlying complex processes.

Within this workshop several current examples are presented of how HPC, HPDA and AI support the tackling of global challenges. The workshop provides insights into advanced HPC, HPDA and AI technologies to improve data-centric computation. It aims to attract and bring together different stakeholders from the HPC and Big Data and Global Challenges communities.
