Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics

Image f. Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and high-performance data analytics have opened new opportunities across many domains. At HLRS, we support such innovation both by providing access to powerful systems for data analysis and helping our system users to make the most of them.

Application areas

We not only provide AI solutions for researchers in science and engineering but also work with individuals and organizations interested in testing new applications of AI technologies in other fields. In the past, this has meant enabling research in fields like computational fluid dynamics and materials science as well as supporting non-scientific domains including business and finance, digital media, literary studies, and the visual and performing arts.

Software

HLRS systems accommodate the latest versions of frequently used programming languages for machine learning and AI, including Apache Spark, TensorFlow, and PyTorch. HLRS also makes it possible for users to port their own software to our systems using PIP (Python), Anaconda, and container frameworks.

Featured projects

In addition to providing hardware and solutions for AI, research scientists at HLRS coordinate and contribute to collaborative, funded research projects that are addressing key technical problems facing the AI field and exploring potential applications of AI to solve pressing challenges. These activities enable us to build expertise and help us to better address the interests and needs of our system users.
