"At Microsoft, we are constantly discovering new ways to unleash creativity, unlock productivity, and uplevel skills so that more people can benefit from using AI. This is allowing our customers to build the future faster and more responsibly by powering their apps using large-scale AI models. Our collaboration with OpenAI, along with the power of Azure have been core to our journey." - Microsoft

This workshop will provide you a framework around how these technologies and AI models can improve tasks and give us a different point of view.

@HPCpodcast: For Lower Costs and Carbon, Liquid Cooling's Growing HPC Presence
insideHPC, Friday, May 12,2023
In fact, liquid cooling has been under development for decades - it goes back much farther than you might think. And now that the power required to cool HPC clusters and data centers has become so expensive and carbon-intensive, liquid cooling has become increasingly prevalent. Some HPC centers report liquid cooling has cut their electrical spending by more than 30 percent.

These and related topics are the focus of this @HPCpodcast episode, sponsored by Lenovo. Shahin and Doug discuss liquid cooling as part of decarbonization and sustainability strategies. We cover everything from chilled doors to direct-to-chip, immersion cooling, vapor chambers, under-water data centers, how servers can be cooled by water we would normally consider to be very hot and the Brobdingnagian water pumps and pipes used to cool exascale-class supercomputers, such as the Frontier system at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility.
