Fujitsu is working together with NVIDIA to give startups, students the computing power required to create effective artificial intelligence (AI) projects.
The utilization of high-performance computing (HPC) platforms has been instrumental in quickening deep learning, which is an indispensable piece of any AI – however can require specific computing offices. To address this potential bottleneck the organizations are presenting a joint activity, the Fujitsu and NVIDIA GPU Cluster. Some portion of Fujitsu’s Zinrai initiative1, an aggregate system of AI capacities that are accessible to Fujitsu clients, the cluster makes HPC abilities all the more effectively accessible to new companies, in light of the intensity of Fujitsu’s PRIMERGY server framework and NVIDIA GPU’s.
The Fujitsu and NVIDIA GPU Cluster will be based at the Drahi X-Novation Center, the hatchery of the renowned Ecole Polytechnique in Paris-Saclay, which likewise has Fujitsu’s AI Center of Excellence (CoE). Proposed to help support the advancement of a solid AI biological system in Europe, the GPU cluster offers a leap forward open door for new startups or students in educational institutions.
The cluster depends on NVIDIA Tesla V100 Tensor Core GPUs and Fujitsu PRIMERGY servers. Together, these give the intense computing abilities expected to grow deep learning projects. The important figure limit will be conveyed in view of the necessities of individual AI projects being produced by startups, by Polytechnique students and by the Fujitsu AI CoE.
Axel Mery, CTO Fujitsu France and Head of Fujitsu’s AI Center of Excellence, says: “Deep learning at the core of AI requires significantly more intense register resources than traditional computational power and constrained access to these resources can be a brake on development. As a component of our EUR 50m investment more than five years to help computerized advancement in France, we are presently making these often-unattainable computational resources accessible to our most imaginative engineers at precisely the time they require them most – paying little heed to their phase of subsidizing. Through this activity in Paris, and also Fujitsu’s continuous investment in its Zinrai AI offering, we see tremendous potential to grow new innovations and human-centric AI solutions.”
Serge Palaric, VP of Business Development Enterprise for South Europe and Embedded EMEA at NVIDIA, remarks: “Through this activity, students and startups can access GPU clusters that quicken the basic deep learning stage for any AI. Our work with Fujitsu and Ecole Polytechnique is another column in our help for the examination, training and advancement biological system empowering the most splendid personalities in tech.”
