Live Webinar: Exascale Matrix Factorization: Using Supercomputers and Machine Learning for Drug Discovery

Presenter: Tom Vander Aa – Researcher/Project Coordinator in the ExaScience Life Lab at imec

21 May 2019 – 14:00

In the ExCAPE European funded project we investigated the power of supercomputers to speed up drug discovery using machine learning. In this live webinar Tom will present the ExCAPE project, the BMF technique, how the POP CoE provided crucial insights in the scaling bottlenecks of BMF, and even helped remove those bottlenecks, how the HPC infrastructure and the HPC implementations were crucial to reach insights and how these insights helped the pharma industry in their drug discovery process.
