Spatial Finance, Climate Research and the iPhone Moment of AI: the power of Accelerated Computing

Dr. Jochen Papenbrock

The iPhone moment of AI: The acceleration of deep learning ignited the big bang of AI. ChatGPT, a large language model powered by a DGX AI supercomputer, reached 100 million users in just two months. The magical capabilities of Generative AI have captured the world's imagination. Accelerated computing and AI have arrived.

In this keynote, Jochen will explain how full-stack accelerated computing enabled Generative AI and how it is now emerging. The cloud, data centres and embedded systems need to be accelerated by computing at massive scale with high energy efficiency.

He will also show how accelerated computing is turbocharging science and space exploration, such as the successes of accelerated geospatial remote sensing and the emerging field of Spatial Finance and Geospatial ESG, as financial services are one of the largest consumers of EO data and services in this decade.

In addition to accelerated computing and AI, he will also cover the connection between the physical and digital worlds and the geospatial opportunities for digital twins in the omniverse. One example is an Earth AI digital twin supercomputer that will help predict climate change decades into the future.
