Would you like to join us? Call open for a Junior Research Engineer to work in our research group at BSC-CNS . Our research group is working on Supercomputing for Artificial Intelligence, in particular right now with a special focus on Deep Learning. In this context, we have some projects with big companies. The open position will be assigned to [...]
New post in Medium about Distributed TensorFlow using Horovod and how to reduce training time for deep neural networks by using many GPUs.The content of this medium post will be used in my master course SA-MIRI at UPC Barcelona Tech with the support of Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
Esta semana Marc Alier (Ludo para los amigos) me ha invitado a su podcast para hablar de Supercomputación, Inteligencia Artificial y Educación en general. Un verdadero regalo, que un antiguo alumno se muestre tan agradecido. ¡Gracias Ludo!. Adjunto les dejo el link al podcast por si les interesa.
Today in the section ECONOMIA of the Barcelona newspaper LA VANGUARDIA, the journalist Josep Maria Ganyet has explained the "Moore's Law" in a very ingenious way for a general public. Moore's Law is the "law" that has most conditioned us (until now) in our world of Supercomputing research. Here I leave the translation so that I [...]
10/January/2019 update: Top writer in Artificial Intelligence @ Medium! :-)
TensorFlow 1.10 has been released! Continuing the recent trend of rapid updates introducing significant fixes and new features, Tensorflow has released its version Tensorflow 1.10 during my summer vacations. Great! This is good for our research in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning at BSC. The full release notes for details on added features and changes that version 1.10 [...]

Hoy clase de master CC-MEI en la capilla de Torre Girona con la compañia de Marenostrum IV del BSC Hoy hemos realizado con nuestros alumnos de CC-MEI la clase en compañia del supercomputador Marenostrum del Barcelona Supercomputing Center en la capilla de Torre Girona de Barcelona. Oriol Riu, como es habitual, nos ha regalado con una excelente, completa y amena presentación. [...]
Enclosed you will find the slides that I used in my last visit to the Torre Girona chapel with UPC students. The slides show the awesome computational power of the Marenostrum IV supercomputer and the presentation of the architecture required to get it. I have posted these transparencies (and photo) for my students as I promised them. But anyone [...]
Today, Sergi Girona, Operations Director at BSC, inform as that on July 1st MareNostrum 4 will come in real production for the first research projects that uses the general purpose block of Marenostrum 4. Great new! I want to thanks the Operations department for their maratonian work. MareNostrum IV peak power is 11.15 Petaflops, or what is the same, it [...]
Few days ago Facebook announced Caffe2, a new open-source, cross-platform framework for deep learning. They say that Caffe2 is the successor to Caffe ( really?), the deep learning framework developed by Berkeley AI Research and community contributors. Caffe2’s GitHub page describes it as “an experimental refactoring of Caffe that allows a more flexible way to organize computation.” As my readers know, when [...]
Last week Adrià, a good friend and former student of the FIB, visited the chapel of Marenostrum. Among many of his skills, he is a great photographer. I attached here some of his pictures of the visit. Great job, right? You can find more information about Adrià's work in his flirk web page. As you can deduce Adrià is the author [...]
