Drexel Metadata Research Center Talk: "Accelerating AI for Data-Driven Discovery"

Event Description
Drexel CCI's Metadata Research Center is proud to present a talk:

"Accelerating Artificial Intelligence for Data-Driven Discovery"

with Shih-Chieh Hsu, PhD, University of Washington (UW)

Talk Abstract:
As scientific datasets become progressively larger, algorithms to process this data quickly become more complex. In response, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a solution to efficiently analyze these massive datasets. Emerging processor technologies such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) allow AI algorithms to be greatly accelerated. The Accelerated AI Algorithms for Data-Driven Discovery (A3D3) Institute sponsored by the National Science Foundation under the Harnessing the Data Revolution program is established to enable real-time AI at scale for broad applications. In this talk, Hsu will give an overview about the challenges of high energy physics, multi-messenger astrophysics and neuroscience regarding AI across latency and throughput regimes. He will introduce various techniques for model compression using state-of-the-art techniques such as pruning and quantization for edge computing. He will demonstrate that acceleration of AI inference as a web service represents a heterogeneous computing solution. Finally Hsu will discuss how A3D3 can bring together disparate communities that are threaded by common data-intensive grand challenges to accelerate discovery in science and engineering.

This free event is open to the Drexel community.


About the Speaker:
Shih-Chieh Hsu, PhD is a professor in physics and adjunct professor in electrical and computer engineering at University of Washington (UW), and director of NSF HDR Institute: Accelerated Artificial Intelligence Algorithms for Data-Driven Discovery. He earned the BS/MS in physics from National Taiwan University and the PhD in Physics from University of California San Diego. He is working on experimental particle physics using proton-proton collision data from the Large Hadron Collider. His research interests range from dark matter searches with the ATLAS experiment neutrino cross-section measurements with the FASER experiment innovative artificial intelligence algorithms for data-intensive discovery and accelerated machine learning with heterogeneous computing.
