Modern data science demands interactive exploration and analysis of large volumes of data. Learn how NVIDIA and RAPIDS take advantage of GPU acceleration by using libraries such as cuDF, cuIO, and cuString. The computational limits of CPUs are being realized. We'll how RAPIDS uses GPUs to accelerate existing workflows and enable workflows that were previously impossible. We'll cover cuDF's high-level architecture and its GPU use, and do a technical dive into cuDF internals such as the cuIO and cuString libraries. We'll also share testing and benchmarking results and reveal some of the new features and optimizations we're investigating for the future of RAPIDS and cuDF.
Customers are looking to extend the benefits beyond big data with the power of the deep learning and accelerated analytics ecosystems. The NVIDIA® DGX-1™ is the platform of AI Pioneers, which integrates power of deep learning and accelerated analytics together in a single hardware and software system. This session will cover the learnings and successes of real world customer examples for accelerated analytics. Learn how customers are leveraging Deep Learning and Accelerated Analytics to turn insights into AI-accelerated knowledge. The growing ecosystem of solutions and technologies that are delivering on this promise will be covered in this session.
Cyber security has an unique complex data problem; 250M to 2B events daily is common. In addition, data is scattered across numerous protection/detection systems and data silos. Rethinking the cybersecurity problem as a data-centric problem, Accenture Labs Cyber Security team uses emerging big-data tools, graph databases & analysis, and GPUs to exploit the connected nature of the data. Pairing GPUs with traditional big data technology created a best of breed evolving system, ASGARD, to allow users to hunt for new unknown threats and risks at speeds much faster than pure CPU systems. Learn how we're visualizing orders of magnitude more data with Graphistry, a GPU powered visualization engine, and accelerating complex analytics on GPUs to level the playing field against new cyber threats.
