The convergence of supercomputing and AI in a Post-Moore’s Law World The world is facing many very large challenges in many fields, including energy, climate, and biology. High-performance computing can help provide the answers through large-scale simulation, but ground-breaking simulations are incredibly computationally expensive. Unfortunately, Moore law is slowly stopping and there is no single technology that might revamp it in the near future. At the same time new approaches to scientific computing are rising and they are changing the paradigm to model natural phenomena or analyze data generated by large scientific instruments. Now it is the era of the of AI+HPC. Here will be briefly presented the current applications that successfully take advantage of the hybrid HPC+AI approach and what is expected to happen in the future.
