Helping the Discovery of New Galaxies on the World's Largest Telescopes Using a Large GPU Cluster
Abstract:
Have you heard about the world's biggest eye ever built? Are you interested in scientific simulations running on NVIDIA DGX-1? Come and learn how combining these powerful computing devices dramatically leaps forward the computational astronomy community in designing major, multimillion-dollar optical instruments for the European Extremely Large Telescope. Starting from the mathematical model up to the high-performance implementation on DGX-1, we'll explain how the resulting matrix computations associated with an efficient task-based programming model help design the next generation of telescope instruments and, eventually, demonstrate a pathfinder for the discovery of new galaxies.
