Bitfusion extends a warm welcome to SC15, which is returning to Austin after six years. We are proud to participate at SuperComputing 15 and will be showing live demos of our acceleration technology speeding up applications in Scientific Computing, Image Processing, Machine Learning by an order or magnitude, at our booth (#2708).
Today, I'm proud to announce that we are launching Bitfusion Labs, a “collaborative proving ground for our research and development efforts.” Labs is the new vehicle by which we will bring platform solutions to market.
Many key areas—pharmaceuticals, data analytics, deep learning, financial services—require complex computations to improve turn-around time to speed-up time-to-market and boost company profits. The volume of data and demand for compute continues to mount and the only only recourse has been to keep scaling: adding CPU-based server nodes. Scale-out definitely helps, but it also means ever lower efficiency as more nodes are added, increased complexity from managing many nodes, increased expenses, and ultimately higher response times overall.
