Summary
AIRI AI Ready Infrastructure
Abstract: Recent advances in AI and deep learning hold tremendous promise for a new wave of innovation for the Federal Government, turning their data into intelligent applications and products. Researchers have fueled these advancements using high-performance GPUs and leveraging massive growth in available datasets. While enterprises seek to get started on their AI journey, they are stuck with legacy technologies like CPUs and spinning disk, and the complexities of building an AI-ready infrastructure with them. Designing, configuring, and maintaining infrastructure to satisfy the challenges of large-scale deep learning requires a significant investment of time and resources to avoid unforeseen delays, bottlenecks, or downtime. Engineers at NVIDIA and Pure Storage collaborated to address many of the complexities that come with scale-out infrastructure for AI workloads.
