In this video from the Big Compute 2020 event, Sam Altman from the OpenAI research laboratory discusses artificial intelligence Shawn Hansen, COO of Rescale. "I think of the most exciting developments in the field in the last few years has been how good AI for natural language is getting. I think we are going to see an explosion in the next few years of systems that can really process, understand, and interact with general language. It will, I think, be the first way that people really feel powerful AI. Because you'll be able to interact with the systems like you do by talking to somebody else. You'll be able to have dialogue that actually makes sense. And computers will be able to process huge volumes of text that are sort of very unstruct.

In this special guest feature from Scientific Computing World, Laurence Horrocks-Barlow from OCF predicts that containerization, cloud, and GPU-based workloads are all going to dominate the HPC environment in 2020. "Over the last year, we’ve seen a strong shift towards the use of cloud in HPC, particularly in the case of storage. Many research institutions are working towards a ‘cloud first’ policy, looking for cost savings in using the cloud rather than expanding their data centres with overheads, such as cooling, data and cluster management and certification requirements.". .
