Exciting panel discussion on the fringes of SC23
Following the announcement that ParTec and Eviden will build the first European exascale system, JUPITER, in Jülich, a panel discussion on the sidelines of Supercomputing 23 in Denver provided an opportunity to discuss the challenges and solutions involved in developing this ground-breaking system. The discussion was moderated by Earl Joseph, CEO of Hyperion Research. Hugo Falter, CO-CEO and COO of ParTec AG, was joined by Prof Thomas Lippert, Head of Jülich Supercomputer Centre, Emmanuel Le Roux, Group Senior Vice President and Head of Advanced Computing & AI at Eviden, and Ian Buck, Vice President of Hyperscale and HPC Computing Business NVIDIA. As the world's most powerful AI system, JUPITER can deliver over 90 exaflops for AI training - 45 times more than the previous JUWELS booster system in Jülich - and 1 exaflop for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications, while consuming only 18.2 megawatts of power.
