SC'19 BoF

Benchmarking Machine Learning Ecosystem on HPC systems

With evolving system architectures, hardware and software stack, and
scientific workloads and data from simulations, it is important to
understand how these interact with each other. Benchmarking would help
evaluate and reason the performance gains with workload to system
mapping. As machine learning (ML) is becoming a critical component to
help run applications faster, improve throughput and understand the
insights from the data generated from simulations, benchmarking ML
methods with scientific workloads at scale will be important as we
progress towards exascale systems and beyond. We anticipate to know
more about the scalability of different machine learning methods,
frameworks and metrics should be considered and understand what
various ongoing efforts could offer. Towards this effort, we are
organizing the first Birds of a Feather (BoF) session at
Supercomputing 2019.
