Dr. Lisa Pérez
Associate Director, Texas A&M’s High Performance Research Computing
Title: “AI/ML Frameworks and Advanced Computing Resources to Accelerate Research at Texas A&M’s High Performance Research Computing (HPRC) Facility”
- AI/ML Frameworks
- High Performance Computing
- AI and Emerging Technology
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) frameworks have become an essential tool in almost every discipline of research. Researchers often begin learning these tools on their personal laptop and run into barriers with complicated installation procedures and limited computing resources. This talk will focus on the AI/ML frameworks, software development and advanced computing hardware offered to researchers through Texas A&M’s High Performance Research Computing (HPRC). An overview of interactive computing utilizing HPRC’s portal and Jupyter notebooks to run common AI/ML tools such as Pandas, Matplotlib, Scikit learn, and Keras will be provided. Lastly, an introduction to HPRC’s advanced hardware and infrastructure including upcoming emerging technologies of composability, High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) processors, Intel Ponte Vecchio GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), Intel FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), NEC Vector Engines, NextSilicon co-processors, and Graphcore IPUs (Intelligence Processing Units) will be presented.
Lisa M. Pérez is the Associate Director for Advanced Computing Enablement at Texas A&M’s High Performance Research Computing (HPRC) facility. She has an extensive background in quantum chemistry, molecular modeling, multidisciplinary research and High Performance Computing (HPC) system administration. She participates in many federally funded research projects and is dedicated to providing cutting-edge resources and training to develop the next generation workforce in the computational sciences. She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Texas A&M University and a B.S. in Chemistry with minors in Math and Computer Information Systems (CIS) from Humboldt State University.
