NVIDIA Collaborates with Monash University for Advance GPU-Accelerated Research

    NVIDIA announced it is collaborating with Monash University to power a new wave of GPU-accelerated research, marking the first step toward a deeply integrated research and development program between research and industry innovation in Australia.

    At a ceremony today at Monash’s Clayton campus in Melbourne, NVIDIA’s Chief Technology Officer of Accelerated Computing, Steve Oberlin, announced that Monash will join the NVIDIA Technology Centre Asia Pacific. The centre is dedicated to driving scientific research and development work in the region.

    NVIDIA and Monash will jointly fund research students, facilitate access to GPU-accelerated computing technologies and leverage their worldwide network of experts to provide industry-relevant training and knowledge exchange. 

     They also announced at the ceremony the M3 supercomputer, the 3rd-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.
