High Performance Computing and Neuromorphic Computing

SESSION: Wednesday HPC Impact Showcase Presentations

EVENT TYPE: HPC Impact Showcase & Emerging Technologies

TIME: 10:20AM - 11:00AM

SESSION CHAIR: David Halstead

Speaker(s):Mark Barnell

ROOM:Show Floor - 233 Theater


The Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate Advanced Computing Division (AFRL/RIT) has focused research efforts that explore how to best model the human visual cortex. In 2008 it became apparent that parallel applications and large distributing computing clusters (HPC) were the way forward to explore new methods. In 2009 at our High Performance Computing Affiliated Resource Center (HPC-ARC) we designed and built a large scale interactive computing cluster. CONDOR, the largest interactive Cell cluster in the world, integrated heterogeneous processors of IBM Cell Broadband Engine multicore CPUs, nVidia GPGPUs and powerful Intel x86 server nodes in a 10GbE Star Hub network and 20Gb/s Infiniband Mesh, with a combined capability of 500 Teraflops. Applications developed and running on CONDOR include: neromorphic computing applications , video synthetic aperture radar (SAR) backprojection and Autonomous Sensing Framework (ASF). This presentation will show progress on performance optimization using the heterogeneous clusters and how neuromorphic architectures are advancing the capabilities for the autonomous systems within the Air Force.
