The RISC2 project has launched a working group for a convergence between High Performance Computing (HPC), Data Science (including Machine Learning and Deep Learning) and large-scale Scientific Computing.
There are five domains of applications of interest to this working group: Energy (in particular green and renewable energies), Smart Cities (AI-based modelling for the design of smart devices and IoT), Transport(green aviation), Climate (specifically climate change and weather forecast), and Health (particularly personalized medicine, epidemiology, cancer research, cardiology, drug design). Some of these domains have links with industry, while others are associated with research priorities of governmental academic organizations in Latin America and Europe.
Within this working group, there are three main actions in perspective:
-Organization of joint workshops and joint work between RISC2 partners through various bilateral programs;
-Organization of seminars and workshops with companies and research institutions to discuss their challenges, and let them know how RISC2 R&D can deliver innovative scientific solutions;
-Participation in proposals for joint projects in the Latin America area.
This working group was proposed by Inria, LNCC, UFRJ/COPPE, partners of the RISC2 project.
