Research partnership boost for City Region’s super-computer

The University of Edinburgh’s high-powered computing centre, the EPCC, is collaborating with US tech giant Nvidia to improve collaboration across the higher education sector.

The EPCC is one of the first organisations to join Nvidia’s UK technology centre, aimed at supporting research in AI and data science.

Mark Parsons, EPCC director and associate dean of e-research, said “We want to be able to leverage the rapid advances of large-scale machine learning to help traditional super-computing applications.”

The EPCC will receive access to Nvidia expertise and resources to support its research in applying AI and trans-precision calculations to the modeling and simulation of complex structures.

The project aims to speed up large mechanical, structural and fluid simulations for gas turbine modeling.
