EECS@QMUL - 1st University in Europe to install Nvidia Deep Learning Supercomputer DGX-1
QMUL is the first university in Europe to successfully install one of two Nvidia DGX-1 deep learning supercomputers.
Launched by Nvidia in 2016 as the world's first supercomputer specifically designed for deep learning and big data analysis (which have witnessed explosive development in the last five years) the DGX-1 delivers 170 teraflops [around 200 times more powerful than your desktop computer] of processing power in a single box.
Our new supercomputer(s) are part of a three year (2016-2019) joint industry-sponsored research project called DeepInsight ('the Deep Learning Research Project on Big Video Analysis').
