BDVA/DAIRO workshop at the EuroHPC Summit Week 2021
March 23rd, 2021 | 15:00 - 16:00(CET), online
On the 23rd of March, BDVA/DAIRO hosts a workshop on HPC, Big Data IoT and AI future industry-driven collaborative strategic topics. The workshop is held as a part of EuroHPC Summit Week 2021 and chaired by Maria Perez (UPM).
The integration of Big Data, AI, IoT, Cloud/Edge/Fog Computing and HPC technologies allows for exploiting large volumes of data from diverse and heterogeneous data sources by deploying data processing and data analytics tasks along the Computing Continuum. Building upon previous workshops held during 2020 with the H2020 ICT11 projects, this session aims at identifying research and innovation needs in terms of convergence and alignment of the basic technologies and their utilisation by industry, especially SMEs. Focus areas in the HPC-HPDA spectrum include Data, workflows, HPC/Cloud infrastructure to edge and AI/ML training. The session also aims at engaging the new EuroHPC JU projects addressing these focus areas. Outcomes will be relevant for the future research and innovation activities in both the EuroHPC JU, and the AI, Data and Robotics Partnership, and are meant to support alignment in between both partnerships.
The agenda will cover:
15:00 - 15:10 Introduction, objectives and presentation of results from the workshop held in 2020, delivered by Maria Perez (BDVA/DAIRO,UPM)
15:10 - 15:50 Presentation from ICT-11 projects: DeepHealth, CYBELE, LEXIS, Evolve, IoTwins, Infinitech (5-7 minutes per project)
15:50 - 16:00 Outcomes and closing remarks
The EuroHPC Joint Undertaking (EuroHPC JU) is a joint initiative between the EU, European countries and private partners to develop a World Class Supercomputing Ecosystem in Europe. EuroHPC Summit Week brings together the main European stakeholders from technology suppliers and HPC infrastructures to scientific and industrial HPC users in Europe. The 2021 edition is the eight EuroHPC Summit Week. The event is organised by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and European Technology Platform for High-Performance Computing (ETP4HPC).
