Equivalent to five quadrillion floating-point operations per second, NVIDIA® DGX A100 ™ is the latest generation of the world’s most advanced AI system released by the AI computing company NVIDIA which can perform five petaFLOPS,
This so-called data center is designed to provide much more computational performance than the current generation thanks to the NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture which is built upon the new 7nm process node technology.
VinAI Institute will use this supercomputer for experiments with outstanding large AI models for linguistic data, images and videos for intensive research.
With superior performance, supercomputers will optimise VinAI's computing power and resources by many times with greater accuracy, as well as reduce time required to complete an experiment from more than one week to less than 24 hours.
Dr. Bui Hai Hung, director of VinAI Research stated that, with the addition of the new NVIDIA DGX A100 AI supercomputer to their current AI computing infrastructure system, VinAI is ready to expand the scale of research and accelerate the deployment of AI application projects.
“Around 70 research scientists, residents and engineers will be making full use of the new AI system. We have some exciting models and experiments waiting for the new machine. . Our lab’s computing-facility utilisation is always maxed out at 100% so there is no shortage of workload”, said Dr. Bui Hai Hung – Director, VinAI Research.
Dennis Ang, NVIDIA Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Asia Pacific, said: “The new NVIDIA DGX A100 will empower VinAI to optimise computing power and resources to accelerate diverse workloads including data analytics, training and inference. VinAI can now scale with ease as its needs increase. We will work closely with them on an architecture level and engage them from a developer’s perspective to drive successful outcomes for their AI projects”.
Established in April 2019 with funding from Vingroup, VinAI Research is focusing on basic research in machine learning, deep learning and new methods and applications of AI in computer vision and natural language processing
With the addition of the new NVIDIA DGX A100 supercomputer, VinAI is more than ready to up-scale its research and applied AI projects. Investment in the AI space is also part of a long-term strategy of VinGroup in becoming a technology-focused corporation.
