ISSAI Expands AI Computation Capacity With Two New Nvidia DGX-2 Servers

The  Institute of Smart Systems and Artificial Intelligence (ISSAI) received two NVIDIA DGX-2 servers. The server specializes in General-purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPU) to accelerate deep-learning applications. It is considered as the world’s fastest workstation for leading-edge AI development. These systems have become the de-facto standard for AI research.

Designed to meet the computing needs of deep learning and data analysis, NVIDIA DGX systems are built on the revolutionary NVIDIA Volta GPU architecture. Thanks to innovative GPU-optimized software and simplified management, these solutions provide revolutionary productivity and speed. NVIDIA DGX Systems are designed to provide scientists with the most powerful tools for developing AI on any platform, from the desktop system to the data center and the cloud.

The ISSAI research team was the first to operationalize the DGX systems in Kazakhstan, and has garnered substantial know-how and expertise in the use of these systems. The expanding deep computation capacity of ISSAI will allow faculty members of Nazarbayev University and collaborators from other Kazakh universities to intensify their research efforts in artificial intelligence.
