NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang addresses 1,400+ attendees of SC19, the annual supercomputing conference. in Denver

He introduced a reference design for building GPU-accelerated Arm servers, announced the world’s largest GPU-accelerated cloud-based supercomputer on Microsoft Azure, and unveiled NVIDIA Magnum IO storage software to eliminate data transfer bottlenecks for AI, data science, and HPC workloads.

Here’s another story of how big data and high performance computing and TensorFlow is reshaping medicine as we know it.

Virtual drug screening has the potential to accelerate the development of new treatments. Using molecular docking, molecular dynamics and other algorithms, researchers can quickly screen for new drug candidates. This saves the enormous expense and time that would have been required to make the same conclusions about those candidates in the lab and in clinical trials.
