Time: Monday, 14 November 2022 1:30pm — 5pm CST


SC (formerly Supercomputing), the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, is the annual conference established in 1988 by the Association for Computing Machinery and the IEEE Computer Society. SC brings together the world’s top research institutions and companies in the computer industry to share about the cutting-edge developments and innovations in HPC, networking, storage and analysis that will unlock new solutions and change our world.

Time: 1 November — 3 November, 2022


Open Data Science Conference (ODSC) hosts one of the largest gatherings of professional data scientists, with major conferences in the USA, Europe, and Asia. ODSC brings about the leading practitioners, innovation experts, and business professionals that drive artificial intelligence across a range of industries. During ODSC, attendees are able to learn more about insightful ideas and innovative AI techniques that will gain further momentum in different industries.

Time: 22 September — 23 September, 2022


AWS Summit is the largest annual technology event of Amazon Cloud Technology in China. As a global cloud computing trendsetter event, AWS Summit gathers many leading technology practitioners and business professionals around the world to share their insightful views. At the summit, they will discuss how Amazon Cloud Technologies continues to explore the possibilities of cloud technology and empower different industries for more potential.

Time: 3 September, 2022


World Artificial Intelligence Conference (WAIC) has become the most influential professional and international high-end exchange and cooperation platform that connects the development of artificial intelligence. Over the past three years, the event has invited nearly 300 high-profile speakers, including Turing Award winners, executives from leading multinational conglomerates, and founders of unicorn AI companies. During WAIC 2021, a total of more than 1,000 speakers shared their views and nearly 300 media reported the event.


HPC-AI Tech is a global company focusing on High Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence. The company was founded by Dr. Yang You, who is the Presidential Young Professor at the National University of Singapore and received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley.

HPC-AI Tech has developed an efficient large AI model training and inference system, Colossal-AI, that integrates many advanced technologies such as multi-dimensional tensor parallelism, sequence parallelism, heterogeneous memory management, large-scale optimization, adaptive task scheduling, etc. By using Colossal-AI, we could help users to efficiently and quickly deploy large AI model training and inference, reducing large AI model training budgets and scaling down the labor cost of learning and deployment.

Prof. Yang You

Prof. Yang You is a Presidential Young Professor at the National University of Singapore. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley. The focus of his current research is scaling up deep neural networks training on distributed systems or supercomputers. In 2017, his team broke the world record of ImageNet training speed, which was covered by the technology media like NSF, ScienceDaily, Science NewsLine, and i-programmer. In 2019, his team broke the world record of BERT training speed. The BERT training techniques have been used by many tech giants like Google, Microsoft, and NVIDIA. Yang You’s LARS and LAMB optimizers are available in industry benchmark MLPerf. He is a winner of IPDPS 2015 Best Paper Award (0.8%), ICPP 2018 Best Paper Award (0.3%) and ACM/IEEE George Michael HPC Fellowship. Yang You is a Siebel Scholar and a winner of Lotfi A. Zadeh Prize. Yang You was nominated by UC Berkeley for ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award (2 out of 81 Berkeley EECS PhD students graduated in 2020). He also made Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list (2021) for young leaders and IEEE-CS TCHPC early career award.

Prof. James Demmel

Prof. James Demmel is the Dr. Richard Carl Dehmel Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of California at Berkeley, and former Chair of the EECS Dept. He also serves as Chief Strategy Officer for the start-up HPC-AI Tech, whose goal is to make large-scale machine learning much more efficient, with little programming effort required by users. Demmel’s research is in high performance computing, numerical linear algebra, and communication avoiding algorithms. He is known for his work on the widely used LAPACK and ScaLAPACK linear algebra libraries. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and American Academy of Arts and Sciences; a Fellow of the AAAS, ACM, AMS, IEEE and SIAM; and winner of the IPDPS Charles Babbage Award, IEEE Computer Society Sidney Fernbach Award, the ACM Paris Kanellakis Award, the J. H. Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, and numerous best paper prizes.
