CARLA 2020 will feature two exciting tracks: HPC (High Performance Computing) and HPC & AI (Artificial Intelligence). The latter is a new addition to the regular CARLA program and focuses on the synergies between AI applications and HPC. These synergies are bidirectional. On one hand, AI needs HPC to run its greedy algorithms to solve a large variety of problems in multiple domains. On the other hand, HPC is finding its way to increase its impact on our society thanks to the multiple existent AI applications. In both cases, the complexity of HPC & AI systems often requires the use of HPC to tackle realistic problems where both the amount of data and the number of relationships among data elements could be monumental.
