HPC-UK is a community resource that brings together information to support researchers using HPC, and the people (such as research software engineers) who support those researchers. It provides a coherent view of what is available, how to access it, where to get training, and how to get the most out of HPC applications.

November 2017 Top500
My initial impression of the latest Top500 list, released last month at the SC17 conference in Denver, was that little has changed. This might not be the conclusion that many will have reached, and indeed we will come on to consider some big changes (or perceived big changes) that have been widely discussed, but looking at the Top 10 entries there has been little movement since the previous list (released in June).

NHS Scotland allows research using routinely collected, unconsented patient data. Additionally, these data can be linked to social data such as education. The research this enables can have an enormous public benefit but the use of these data must be managed very carefully to safeguard privacy and maintain public trust and support.
EPCC is responsible for building, supporting and hosting the infrastructure of the National Safe Haven, and we continue to develop the infrastructure and software to further enhance the service.

The interdisciplinary HPC-Europa programme, which provides access to some of Europe’s top HPC facilities, is now running again.
The programme pays travel and living costs for short collaborative research visits to a scientific host in another country. Applications can be submitted at any time, with four closing dates per year.

Our Supercomputing MOOC is for anyone interested in leading-edge computing technology, supercomputers or the role that computer simulation takes in science and engineering. There is no requirement to write computer programmes. The next 5-week run will begin on January 15 2018.

EPCC, the University of Edinburgh, and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) recently ran a Best Use of ARCHER competition to facilitate early-career researchers, who are all either PhD candidates or postdoctoral researchers, to build and develop their international network. ARCHER and EPSRC both recognise the importance of enabling young researchers to build their personal network to help build collaborations and skills.

This year’s MPI Birds-of-a-Feather meeting at SC17 will be held on Wednesday 15th November. I’ll be talking about the Sessions proposal – and explaining why it’s no longer called Sessions!
Spoiler: the working group has been looking at how Teams might interact with Endpoints.

Are you interested in using machine learning for something big enough to need supercomputing resources?
Have you worked on, or with, one of the Deep Learning frameworks, like TensorFlow or Caffe?
Are you just curious about the state-of-the-art at the crossover between AI and HPC?
