ISC19

AIST started operation of ABCI, which is a publicly available cloud infrastructure for AI research and development, from August 2018, and RWBC-OIL uses ABCI for AI research. RWBC-OIL researchers from AIST and TokyoTech attend SC19 to provide presentations and booth exhibition about ABCI and AI/BigData research projects.

SC19 Booth Exhibition

Highlights at SC19 is presentations of RWBC-OIL research activities that use ABCI and TSUBAME3.0. This year, three research papers and three posters from AIST and TokyoTech are presented. There are also many talks from RWBC-OIL researchers at BoF, panels, workshop and exhibition booths.

Same as last year's SC, we present ABCI at the booth. ABCI is an open innovation platform with world-class computing resources of 550 Pflops (HP) / 37 Pflops (DP) for AI research and development. The design of ABCI was impacted by the design of TSUBAME3.0 at TokyoTech. Further information about ABCI is available from ABCI web site. Information about TSUBAME3.0 is available from TokyoTech web site. You can reach the exhibition information about TokyoTech on this page.
