IT4Innovations presented its EuroHPC petascale supercomputer Karolina and a new version of the LEXIS Platform in the demo lab session of the EuroHPC Summit 2024 conference. This conference attracted the most important people from the HPC community around the Europe and served as important place for sharing strategic updates and exchanging ideas for the EU supercomputing strategy. The presentation was delivered by students of the EUMasters4HPC study programme demonstrating HPC applications provided by the IT4Innovations research labs. The demo lab was highly successful and< attracted many people from the audience with positive feedback and interesting discussions.

The first demo focused on the new version of the LEXIS Platform which allows federated execution of complex computing workflows and distributed data management across multiple EuroHPC supercomputers. A federated workflow across Karolina and LUMI systems was demonstrated on drug discovery application developed within the LIGATE project and demonstration of data publishing and management features were presented on data produced by the project. The students demonstrated also an execution of a simple HPC workflow with AI application deployed in a container on Karolina cluster through the LEXIS Platform as one of the new features of the platform.

The second demo application focused on direct usage of the Karolina cluster for generating deep fake videos as AI use-case requiring substantial compute power. The students took images of the conference participants in high resolutions and replace them in recordings from the conference sessions.

The EuroHPC Summit 2024 was a landmark event for high-performance computing (HPC) in Europe, showcasing the latest advancements in supercomputing technology and infrastructure. From 18 to 21 March 2024 the summit brought together experts from academia, industry, and government to discuss the future of HPC, quantum computing, and AI, highlighting the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking’s role in enhancing Europe’s computational capabilities. New pre-exascale and petascale supercomputers were unveiled, promising significant boosts to research across various fields such as climate science and bioinformatics. The summit, which was held in Antwerp, emphasised the importance of collaboration, innovation, and education in developing a skilled workforce for the evolving HPC landscape. Finally, it underscored Europe’s commitment to digital and environmental sustainability, setting ambitious goals for achieving digital sovereignty and reducing the carbon footprint of digital infrastructures.
