About the Event

The Cerebras Wafer-Scale Engine (WSE) provides a unique architecture as 850,000 cores are tied together with a high-bandwidth and low latency network on a single wafer that allows for incredible speed-up of some typical HPC algorithms. In this talk the Cerebras team will showcase the CS-2 system, the types of algorithms that do well with this architecture, and the Cerebras Software Development Kit (SDK) that is used to program applications for the wafer.

Attendees can submit a request for access to the Cerebras SDK and be able to run jobs using the Cerebras Simulator.  If approved access to the SDK will allow developers to begin exploring the architecture, learning the Cerebras Software Language (CSL), and porting applications.

About the Speaker

Dr. Adam W. Lavely
HPC Performance Engineer and Team Lead

Dr. Adam W. Lavely leads the HPC Solutions Engineering team at Cerebras that helps partners port and optimize HPC applications for the Cerebras wafer. Dr. Lavely has spent time studying the aerodynamics of supersonic jet engines, the effect of atmospheric turbulence on wind turbine aerodynamic loadings, and Titan’s atmospheric dynamics for the Dragonfly rotorcraft design.

Prior to joining Cerebras, Dr. Lavely worked as a research facilitator at Penn State’s Institute for Computational and Data Sciences (then the Institute for Cyber Science), and at Cray/HPE as a member of the Centers of Excellence for Frontier and El Capitan.
