Artificial Intelligence, augmented reality, machine learning, and other emerging tools are revolutionizing the way we work, play, and live our lives. The University of Florida is launching a new initiative to advance and apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) across the enterprise as a fundamental pillar of our academic pursuits.
This initiative will train our graduates for an AI-enabled world through new university-wide curricula. In addition, UF anticipates enhancing our research computing environment with some of the nation’s most advanced AI machinery. In combination with the latest version of HiPerGator 3.0 (January 2021), UF will have the very best and fastest AI supercomputer in U.S. higher education.
It is our intent to:
NVIDIA's technology powers two-thirds of the world's 500 fastest supercomputers, including eight of the top 10. The third-generation HiPerGator will have access to NVIDIA's most advanced AI software and integrate 140 NVIDIA DGX™ A100 systems with 1,120 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs and high-performance NVIDIA Mellanox HDR 200Gb/s InfiniBand networking to deliver 700 petaflops of AI performance.
NVIDIA will also contribute its AI expertise to UF through ongoing support and collaboration across the following initiatives:
