HPC FOCUS

HPC FOCUS

Dávame vám do pozornosti nové vydanie časopisu HPC FOCUS. Od posledného vydania sa v oblasti vysokovýkonného počítania na Slovensku udiali viaceré zmeny. Niektoré možno ostali nepovšimnuté, niektoré mali väčší ohlas v médiách, no veríme, že majú potenciál nás a celú slovenskú HPC komunitu posúvať vpred.

V apríli 2021 bol úspešne ukončený projekt SIVVP, vďaka ktorému bol v roku 2012 obstaraný a sprevádzkovaný prvý slovenský superpočítač Aurel, ako aj ďalšie výpočtové klastre v Bratislave, Žiline, Košiciach a Banskej Bystrici.

Jednou zo spomínaných zmien je, že úlohu inštitúcie, ktorá bude slúžiť ako prvý kontakt pre záujemcov o HPC, preberie postupne Národné kompetenčné centrum pre HPC (NCC). A to sa okrem služieb pre akademický sektor bude zameriavať aj na spoluprácu s malými a strednými podnikmi, firmami z priemyslu a inštitúciami verejnej správy.

Počas uplynulých mesiacov na Slovensku vzniklo aj Národné superpočítačové centrum (NSCC), ktoré ako združenie akademického, súkromného i štátneho sektora bude formovať doteraz chýbajúcu a zároveň veľmi potrebnú národnú víziu a stratégie v oblasti rozvoja a podpory HPC. Už dnes sa do slovenského Plánu obnovy a rozvoja podarilo presadiť vyčlenenie prostriedkov na nový superpočítač, ktorého vybudovanie je jedným z cieľov NSCC v najbližších rokoch. V časopise nájdete aj rozhovor s členmi správnej rady NSCC Mgr. Lukášom Demovičom, Phd. (SAV) a PhDr. Radoslav Repom (MIRRI).

Dočítate sa aj o vysokovýkonnom počítaní a predpovedi počasia na SHMÚ, popularizácii HPC, aplikáciách v praxi a paneurópskej HPC infraštruktúre.

The National competence centre pilot hackathon

The National competence centre pilot hackathon

It was a challenge to come up with a suitable topic for our pilot online NCC hackathon: the HPC environment has its specifics and most people are not familiar with it. At the end we’ve decided for a challenge that would involve something we all know and use: a mobile application. This particular application should allow our HPC users to access information about computational resources and overview of their jobs via their smartphone.

The organizers have prepared a so-called backend for the application developers to acces all the data needed from our HPC cluster situated in Košice. The participants could try out submitting test jobs, as well. During a webinar organized prior to the hackathon we explained the basics about the environment, submission of jobs and the workload management tool SLURM. The hackathon started on July 9. Both teams that participated actively in the event chose a different approach to the application development: PWA (Prograssive Web App) and Kotlin multiplatform. We appreciate the great job they did in transforming the available data into a practical solutions presented at the end. The winner application should work on both Android and iOS devices and after some final adjustments will be available for our users to test!

We also thank our partners and sponsors for media support and prizes. Big thank you to QuBit Academy, WebSupport, Cybersec.skLearn2Code, Slovak Academy of Sciences and the bart.sk!

National video games day

National video games day

Today, video games are an inseparable part of the life for a large amount of the population. We prepared several interesting facts about this phenomenon for today's National Video Game Day. The first video game is considered to be an artificial intelligence called Bertie the Brain, which was able to play Tic-tac-toe.  

This device was assembled in 1950 by Josef Kates to be exhibited at the Canadian National Exhibition. The first gaming device was up to 4 meters high, which is why it was never mass-produced. After the Canadian National Exhibition, no other piece was made again. Another computer adapted for playing a game was the Nimrod, which was introduced at the Festival of Britain in 1951. Nimrod and Bertie the Brain can be considered the founders of the world of video games in the form as we know it today. 

In the process of creating video games, an original idea is essential. At the beginning, it is important to know what type of game you want to create, whether it will be a sports game, action or logic game. The creator of the video game must have an idea of the story, the length of the game, the budget and the levels of complexity. An important step is the right choice of software that will make the work easier for developers. The longest-lasting phase in the creation of the game is the creation itself - designing the environment and individual characters. Creating a video game is a demanding and lengthy process, the most pleasant part of which is the publication of the game.

We often come across the opinion that video games have a negative impact on the players. A group of scientists under the expert guidance of Marc Palaus looked at it and Scientists have found out that video game players have better-developed areas of the brain which are responsible for concentration and spatial perception. Those who play video games regularly can better perceive the relationships between individual objects in space, and also fine motor skills improve.

It is also important to remember the risks involved that can strongly affect people's lives. Even though gambling is the most common form of addiction, one can also be addicted to video games. Scientists have found out that people prone to video game addiction have common changes in brain structure - their nervous reward system is altered. It is a group of structures that is responsible for a pleasant feeling after the successful achievement of the set goals. Based on this research, we can claim that it is possible to predict who is more likely to become addicted to video games.

However, we must not forget the positives, which, in addition to better spatial perception and improved fine motor skills, also include the development of certain skills that people have a problem with. It is important to mention games which are intended specifically to help people after strokes. These support re-learning of certain skills and also help the rehabilitation process.

A specialised museum is available for all those interested in video games on the premises of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava. The computer museum exhibits the first computers, telephones and graphics, or older models of game consoles and controllers. Functional machines are also available for trying out!

DIGITbrain

DIGITbrain – Call for proposals in 2022

DIGITbrain Project is an EU innovation program (coordinated by PNO Consultants) to give SMEs easy access to digital twins.

A Digital Twin is the virtual representation of a product, system or process that simulates its physical attributes in the real-world in real time. By collecting data from its physical counterpart, manufacturers are enabled to streamline the manufacturing process and make predictions with regard to machine failures or maintenance needs.

V porovnaní s konceptom digitálnych dvojičiek, ktorý sa už v súčasnosti využíva vo výrobných procesoch mnohých spoločností, chce projekt DIGITbrain zájsť ešte o krok ďalej a vyvinúť tzv. ‚Digital Product Brain‘, ktorý by zbieral a ukladal dáta z celého cyklu výrobnej línie alebo stroja. Toto sa uplatní v novom koncepte výroby, ktorý sa nazýva “výroba ako služba” (Manufacturing-as-a-Service / MaaS). Tento koncept umožní výrobu podľa požiadaviek klienta, produkciu špecializovaných výrobkov a to aj v menších množstvách a zároveň stále ekonomicky.

Experiments will be implemented in close collaboration with Digital Innovation hubs and technical partners of competence centers. This interaction should start during proposal preparation, DIHs and technical partners of competence centers acting as business and technical supporters for applicants. This collaboration should continue during the experiments’ deployment and execution.

The 2nd Open Call for application experiments will be open from 31st March 2022 for three months until the End of June 2022. Learn more about the program HERE.

EHPCSW: HPC Education & Training - Perspectives

EHPCSW: HPC Education & Training - Perspectives

On March 26, 2021 the HPC training landscape in Slovakia was introduced at the EuroHPC Summit Week/PRACEdays2021 by Miloslav Valčo, the taskleader for the Training and Skills Development in the NCC Slovakia.

Training and skills development in HPC+ fields is one of the main areas the National competence centre and the EuroCC project focuses on. Currently, most of the HPC related courses are a part of Universities Master and PhD programme. Several courses are provided by the Computing Centre, Slovak Academy of Sciences and occasionally training activities in collaboration with the PRACE project are organized (Summer of HPC, seasonal schools). Only a limited number of courses (Parallel programing, Software engineering, Linux administration ) are offered by private companies and while useful, they are not usually focused on HPC specifically.

In Slovakia, among the main problems we face are lack of qualified trainers, lack of dedicated training infrastructure and of course, insufficient promotion and awareness.

While it is clear that HPC is playing an increasingly important role not only in academia, but in private and public sectors as well, the NCC Slovakia puts effort into expanding training activities. New courses, such as Parallel programming in C, C++, R, Python HPDA, Nvidia CUDA, Profiling and Optimization, Neural Networks, Virtualisation were added to the portfolio, with more to come.

The NCC Slovakia realizes the importance of awareness creation and promotion of HPC and HPC+ solutions and attracting experienced trainers as well as trainees. Through cooperation with local Universities and the National Supercomputing Centre the NCC Slovakia hopes to develop more complex services in HPC training in the future.

Summer of HPC: Efektívna konštrukcia Fockovej matice v lokalizovanej Hartree-Fockovej metóde

Summer of HPC: Efficient Fock matrix construction in localized Hartree-Fock method

Join our team in Bratislava for the summer of 2021 and gain experience in coding, implementation and testing of parallel ab initio programme. During the two month project students will learn about fortran and MPI environments. They will also get familiar with ideas of efficient use of tensor-contractions and parallel I/O in quantum chemistry algorithms. The goal is to push the efficiency of the MPI code(s) to maximum.

PRACE partner countries and students studying at academic institutions in Europe have the opportunity to participate in summer internships at a European High Performance Computing (HPC) centre. The Summer of HPC rogramme promotes young emerging talents in HPC, increases their awareness of HPC and supports them towards becoming HPC users.

Solution of independent-particle model (DFT or Hartree-Fock method) is one of the key targets of many quantum chemistry codes. Hartree-Fock method is iterative procedure which consist of two time-consuming steps. First, construction of Fock matrix from integrals and density matrix. Second, diagonalization of constructed Fock matrix.

Several years ago we effectively removed diagonalization step which was replaced by matrix-matrix multiplications. Very recently we implemented the solution of Hartree-Fock equations in localised orbitals, which opens the route toward a code applicable for very large molecules. Currently, Fock matrix construction is implemented only in a sequential mode. The aim of the project will be the effective implementation of parallel versions of the developed software.

Students are expected to cooperate on implementation and performance testing of Fock matrix construction. Two different approaches will be implemented and tested. First, BLAS version combined with OpenMP or MPI. Second we would like to implement Fock matrix construction using sparse matrix multiplications. Both algorithms will be implemented in local version of quantum chemistry program DIRCCR12OS which is mostly coded in fortran. It contains working MPI environment so students will be using several routines already implemented in the code.

Late-stage undergraduate and master’s students are invited to apply. Background in quantum-chemistry or physics is needed. We would alsowelcome advanced knowledge of fortran, basic knowledge of MPI, BLAS libraries and other HPC tools. Previous experience in HPC is not required as training will be provided.
