GPU accelerated computing is transforming computational science and AI across multiple domains.

Join the featured speakers discussing cutting-edge technologies to accelerate their research in a broad range of scientific disciplines. The session will also provide an avenue to discuss the challenges and barriers in the adoption of GPU computing by the larger higher education and research community in Australia.

Agenda:

Building advanced GPU Computing Capabilities to support AI for Science (15 min presentation)

Dr. John Taylor

Research Group Leader CSIRO, Data61 & Program Leader Defence Science and Technology Group

As the volume of high-resolution data created by the scientific instruments grows, a next-generation HPC requires innovation infrastructure optimisation to enable research to achieve the most from their experimental data (15 min presentation)

Ms. Gin Tan

Principle Research Systems Architect, Monash eResearch Centre, Monash University

Meeting Astronomy Community Challenges with GPU Acceleration (15 min presentation)

                Dr. Gregory Poole

Astronomy Data Science Coordinator, Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing, Swinburne University of Technology

Biography:

Dr. Gabriel Noaje is a Senior Solutions Architect at NVIDIA APAC South specialized in HPC and DL. Gabriel has more than 12 years of experience in accelerator technologies and parallel computing. Prior to joining NVIDIA, Gabriel worked both for large OEMs like SGI and HPE, as well as large HPC centers in Singapore and France.

Gabriel holds a PhD in Computer Sciences from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne, France and a BSc and MSc in Computer Sciences from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, Romania.

Dr. John Taylor is currently Computational Platforms Research Group Leader in CSIRO DATA61. At CSIRO he is leading complex, multi-site, large scale interdisciplinary teams of research scientists, computational scientists, computer scientists and software engineers drawn from across all areas of CSIRO science and from Information Management and Technology (IM&T) that are delivering high quality strategic science. He is also Program Leader, HPC and Computational Science, at Defence Science and Technology Group, Dept. of Defence where he is building a new HPC capability to support defence research.

He has held leadership positions managing large and diverse programs of research and teaching at prominent universities and research laboratories in both Australia and the United States of America. In these positions he has taken the lead in developing the vision, the culture of excellence, setting the strategic directions, building high performing teams and delivering on the strategic goals.

Ms. Gin Tan is the Principle Research Systems Architect at Monash University who brings over eight years of experience in running high performance and high throughput computing. In her capacity, she delivers computing resources to researchers and strengthening University in eResearch capacity by providing computing solutions that may involve developing new hardware or software solutions, re-architecting, or redeploying existing open-source or commercial solutions. Also, Gin takes complete responsibility for delivering IT solutions to customers, managing staff, and supporting a team of developers and system admins. Over the years, she has been involved in creating, designing, and implementing new and reliable tech which has led to the growth and expansion of the organization. Gin is supporting software-defined infrastructure and also has the vision to drive the hardware technology using the software.

Dr. Gregory Poole obtained his PhD from the University of Victoria (Canada) in 2007 after completing his MSc at the University of Toronto (Canada) and his BSc at the University of Waterloo (Canada). He has contributed to published studies in a variety of fields, from the thermal properties of interstellar dust and observations of distant star clusters to simulations of colliding galaxy clusters and of the large-scale structure of the Universe.

He is currently the Astronomy Data Science Coordinator for the Centre of Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology and manages the development efforts of the Swinburne node of the Astronomy Data and Computing Services (ADACS) program.

About the conference

eResearch Australasia provides opportunities for delegates to engage, connect, and share their ideas and exemplars concerning new information centric research capabilities, and how information and communication technologies help researchers to collaborate, collect, manage, share, process, analyse, store, find, understand and re-use information.
