Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Blending high performance computing with artificial intelligence
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is home to the National Ignition Facility, which conducts nuclear fusion research using the world’s most powerful laser. However, their inertial confinement experiments are very expensive and time consuming on GPUs. To speed up simulations and get to insights faster, LLNL added a Cerebras system to its Lassen supercomputer, offloading AI workloads to our dedicated accelerator and delivering 18 million DNN inferences per second.
