Representatives of EuroCC meet with JSC “Latvijas Valsts meži”
On April 30, 2021, an educational seminar about high performance computing (HPC) technologies and possibilities took place. It was organized by the representatives of the EuroCC Latvia project and it was tailored for the employees of JSC “Latvijas Valsts meži”.
During the seminar, participants were given an insight into the application of HPC in numerical modeling, told about HPC infrastructure, demonstrated a practical example of HPC calculation, as well as given a presentation on machine learning – deep learning neural networks.
The event was designed to educate about HPC technologies and capabilities, as well as to inspire HPC use in the day-to-day operations of organizations in order to improve their efficiency and help provide the skills to use technologies that have become the standard for rapid and smart development.
HPC competence centers are being established in Latvia and other European countries within the framework of the H2020 project. Latvia is represented in this project by the RTU HPC Center in cooperation with the Institute of Numerical Modeling of the University of Latvia. The task of the competence centers established during the project is to create a one-stop HPC contact point – a single support structure to promote the use of HPC opportunities in higher education, research, public administration, all types of business, including industry.
