Previous NCC webinars and recordings

ML in an HPC context

In this webinar from 25 May, you learn more about machine learning (ML) and how this is fast becoming one of the biggest application areas in High-Performance Computing (HPC). Slide set from the webinar (PDF)

For many use cases, access to the computing resources of a single machine is no longer sufficient and scaling out is the only option. Add the growing size of data to train algorithms, and it’s no wonder many turn to clusters for their computing needs.

Meet Senior Engineer and Team Lead for the Norwegian research infrastructure service´s GPU team, Jørgen Nordmoen from USIT.

We are happy to support SMEs through workshops around the topics discussed by Equinor, for analyzing how this will apply to your use case, and the best methods to overcome the challenges. Please contact us if you want to learn more.

Successful use of commercial cloud

In this webinar from 27 January 2022, we meet Age Bakke, CTO of Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), or the Oil Fund.

Age, together with colleagues Håkon Brynildsen and Haakon Fjeldberg, let us know how it has been to leave the old data centre model in favour of internal ownership and the use of the commercial cloud.

As Age says: - Our philosophy is to never log on to a server.
