Sandia, PNNL, and Georgia Tech Partner on New AI Co-Design Center

Sandia National Laboratories, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the Georgia Institute of Technology are launching a research center that combines hardware design and software development to improve artificial intelligence technologies. The Department of Energy Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) will provide $5.5 million over three years for the research effort, called ARtificial Intelligence-focused Architectures and Algorithms (ARIAA). This new collaboration is intended to encourage researchers at the three institutions, each with their own specialty, to simulate and evaluate artificial intelligence hardware when employed on current or future supercomputers. Researchers also should be able to improve AI and machine-learning methods as they replace or augment more traditional computation methods. See this press release for more details.

The Artificial Intelligence-focused Architectures and Algorithms concept has applications, algorithms, programming runtime and architectures all working together
