First Workshop on Applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in High-Performance Computing

held in conjunction with PPAM 2022

Gdansk, Poland - September 11-14, 2022


Machine learning and artificial intelligence methods have become pervasive in recent years due to numerous algorithmic advances and the accessibility of computational power. In HPC, these methods have been used to replace, accelerate or enhance existing solvers. This workshop focuses on AI-based solutions to increase performance, reduce energy consumption, or increase the accuracy in HPC applications or tools.
