This training event started with an introductory talk to provide a view of high-performance data analytics (HPDA) from the HiDALGO perspective. The main concepts were presented, listing the tools that have been used, together with information about benchmarks the consortium have done (as a source of information about their scalability). This introduction also presented how these tools are being applied in HiDALGO, in order to solve different problems.

Hardware in various environments such as High Performance Computing, the Internet of Things and Embedded Systems has become heterogeneous in order to improve computational performance. Customising the hardware for particular application domains as well as the use of accelerators such as GPUs, TPUs, DSPs, FPGAs is attractive as it can lead to performance improvements of up to three orders of magnitude compared to general-purpose processors.

Robert Elsässer from HiDALGO will give a guest lecture, titled "Spectral methods to compute "eigenvalue histograms" (estimates of eigenvalue frequencies) for graph Laplacians and other LA apps that rely on iterative solvers (e.g in PETCs).", during the Iterative Solvers for Linear Systems course at HLRS on March 8-10, 2021.

HIDALGO researchers presented findings of their studies on „Tackling global challenges with HPC High Performance Computing"

A group of scientists from the EU-funded project HIDALGO collaboratively organised a workshop to discuss pressing issues like the spread of diseases (Covid-19), climate change, air pollution, forced migration, or false and misleading information on twitter and other channels. The speakers showed that HPC, HPDA and Artificial Intelligence could form a pathway to accurately model, simulate, and also to provide forecasts (e.g.

HiDALGO co-organises the "First Joint CoEs Technical Workshop" together with the Centres of Excellence EXCELLERAT and HiDALGO.
This event, which takes place on 27-29 January 2021, is open to HiDALGO, ChEESE and EXCELLERAT partners. Members of other CoEs may also participate.

Several HiDALGO partners present in this event:

Load Balancing session
Robert Elsässer (PLUS): "On Discrete Load Balancing with Diffusion Type Algorithms"

"The HiDALGO project focusses on modelling and simulating the complex processes which arise in connection with major global challenges. The researchers have developed the Flu and Coronavirus Simulator (FACS) with the objective to support decision makers to provide an appropriate response to the current pandemic situation taking into account health and care capabilities...." 

HiDALGO's third newsletter has arrived, check it out here!

Dennis Hoppe from HLRS and Derek Groen from Brunel will give a presentation at SC'20 - the premier conference for supercomputing - on Addressing Global Challenges with HPC and Big Data Technologies on November 17th.
