Monash University launches M3 to accelerate research

M3 launch
Australian Chief Scientist Alan Finkel AO and Monash Professor Ian Smith get ready to press the red button to launch M3.

Monash University is taking research to another level with the launch of M3, the third-generation supercomputer available through the MASSIVE (Multi-modal Australian ScienceS Imaging and Visualisation Environment) facility.

Powered by ultra-high-performance NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPU accelerators, M3 will provide new simulation and real-time data processing capabilities to a wide selection of Australian researchers.

“Our collaboration with NVIDIA will take Monash research to new heights. By coupling some of Australia’s best researchers with NVIDIA’s accelerated computing technology we’re going to see some incredible impact. Our scientists will produce code that runs faster, but more significantly, their focus on deep learning algorithms will produce outcomes that are smarter,” said Professor Ian Smith, Vice Provost (Research and Research Infrastructure), Monash University.

Giving researchers instant feedback with immersive visualisation technologies

At GTC South Asia, Monash University shared how it has leveraged GPU technology to transform the way research is done. Entelechy Asia catches up with the university’s Professor Paul Bonnington (Professor and Director of E-research Centre) and Dr Wojtek James Goscinski (Coordinator of E-research Centre) to find out more about the deployment and how NVIDIA GPUs have made a great difference in research.
