Summer of HPC 2021 winners


CINECA's students Mario Gaimann and Raska Soemantoro just won the 2021 SoHPC Best Performance Award, with theie project "Automated Classification for Mapping submarine structures by Artificial Intelligence strategies" (project 2111). The award ceremony took place during the EuroHPC Summit Week 2022 / PRACEdays22 on March 24th, 2022 in Paris. The two students worked in collaboration with OGS, NOC and CINECA, as well as the DPC-MaGIC Project.

The reasons for the award were: "Mario and Raska worked on a particularly challenging project and on their own developed an automated tool to recognize seabed structures. They worked very hard on this project, researching the various AI methods available to them and deciding on which methods were best to use. Furthermore, through their own initiative they researched, identified and learned various technologies and tools to use for their project. The outcomes of their work far exceeded the initial expectations of the project. Indeed they will aim to publish their results through funding via the HPC-Europa3 scheme."
