ISSAI is sharing its AI computational resources with Kazakhstani universities

ISSAI’s Technical Project Coordinator Yerbol Absalyamov and Computer Engineer Makat Tlebaliyev held seminars at the leading universities in Almaty on ISSAI’s computational resources. The visit to the Suleyman Demirel University (SDU) and the Al-Farabi Kazakh National University (KazNU) took place on 25-27th May to promote AI computing among Kazakhstani universities. 

At the end of 2021, ISSAI started preparing the NVIDIA DGX-1 server to be used as a pilot server to share with the Kazakhstani universities so that they could run their research models on this server remotely for free. 

During the visit, ISSAI representatives introduced the audience to the ISSAI’s mission and research activities, explained the technical features and parameters of its AI computational resources and the way of conducting research using NVIDIA DGX-1, the ability of having a remote access, and the possible exchange of researchers for collaborative research. The prospective areas of joint research are in the directions of object detection, natural language processing, face recognition, machine learning, and automated design.

ISSAI will strive to work with the other Kazakhstani universities to increase the AI research know-how and capacity of the country.
