The headline of today’s news; Lenovo and Intel goes into Multi-year partner over HPC & AI. According to news making the rounds today, Intel and Lenovo today announced a multiyear collaboration focused on the rapidly growing opportunity in the convergence of artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing (HPC).
This is to simply help accelerate solutions for the world’s most challenging problems. As a matter of fact, the multiyear agreement will combine Intel chips and software with Lenovo hardware and liquid cooling technology.
Now, the news in details: Intel and Lenovo have signed a multi-year partnership agreement where both companies will focus on converging high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI). The partnership is to build solutions for organisations of all sizes and solve the world’s most challenging problems.
The interesting thing is that as part of the collaboration, Lenovo will be enhancing Intel’s complete portfolio of AI hardware and software solutions and HPC. The two companies will help accelerate the convergence of the technologies to unravel new levels of customer insight.
Also, the merging of the Lenovo Neptune liquid cooling technology together with the second Generation Intel Xeon Scalable platform has already produced significant results from joint engineering and using a unique combination of HPC IP from both companies.
The Lenovo-Intel alliance would focus mainly on three areas:
- Systems and solutions
- Software optimisation for HPC and AI convergence
- Ecosystem enablement
As of now, 173 of the Top 500 fastest supercomputers, across 19 markets, in the world run on Lenovo servers.
Additionally, Microsoft in a speech announced a £819.6million investment in OpenAI to make artificial general intelligence (AGI). To be more specific, Altman Sam, CEO of OpenAI, said: “The creation of AGI will be the most important technological development in human history, with the potential to shape the trajectory of humanity”.
According to the speeches he made, their mission is to ensure that AGI technology benefits all of humanity. Also they’re working with Microsoft to build the super-computing foundation on which they’ll build AGI. In a like manner, they believe it’s crucial that AGI is deployed safely and securely. Furthermore, its economic benefits are widely distributed. Finally, they are excited about how deeply Microsoft shares this vision.
In conclusion, we talked about the news of Intel and Lenovo entering into multi-year partner-ship over AI and HPC. Chinese server maker Lenovo and US chip giant Intel have entered into a global agreement for HPC, AI push.
