Only a few of many reviewed achievements receive the renowned HPC Innovation Excellence Award. Radu Grosu, Professor and Head of the Research Unit Cyber-Physical Systems at TU Wien Informatics and the research team at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and the Institue of Science and Technology Austria (IST) have excelled with their biologically inspired approach to neural networks.

Their “liquid” machine learning systems are a new type of neural networks with enhanced interpretability and robustness that learn the true cause and effect of tasks in changing real-world circumstances.

About the HPC Innovation Award

Since 2011, the HPC Innovation Awards have recognized outstanding achievements worldwide that were supported by the use of high-performance computing (HPC). Judges for the awards are the worldwide steering committee of the HPC User Forum, representing leading HPC user organizations in government, academia, and industry. Winners have ranged from government and academic research teams to some of the world’s largest corporations. The program’s goals are to showcase HPC-supported, real-world achievements with significant potential for benefiting humanity, achievements that demonstrate the value of HPC for research and development in government, academic or private-sector organizations.

Hyperion Research helps organizations make effective decisions and seize growth opportunities by providing research and recommendations in high-performance computing and emerging technology.
