SSUG::Digital: 009 – Deep Thought: An AI Project for Autonomous Driving Development

16th November 2020 @ 16:00 - 17:00 GMT

Continental, a tier-1 automotive supplier, runs a new high-performance cluster based on NVIDIA DGX, IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM ESS to boost autonomous driving development performance. Continental uses this system for deep learning, simulation, virtual data generation and related workloads. The new cluster reduces development time from weeks to hours. Speakers from Continental and the business partner SVA will present business requirements and derived workloads, the Spectrum and ESS implementation, and first operational experience.
