LightOn OPU now ventures into large scale scientific computing
With this release, users of LightOn’s technology can now have at their disposal a lightning fast scalable linear random projection on any Aurora Nitro OPU. A linear transform opens the path to many interesting applications, especially in the field of HPC and randomized linear algebra.
For example, while computing the trace of a matrix is usually computationally cheap, computing the trace of a function of a matrix can become really expensive really fast. In such cases, we can use randomized trace estimation. An application of such algorithms is the computation of triangles in a graph, that is central in complex network analysis, such as massive social networks.
A wider selection of HPC and RandNLA applications is presented in our preprint Photonic co-processors in HPC: using LightOnOPUs for Randomized Numerical Linear Algebra, and we will go into more details in a future blog post!
For on-premises computations you can take a look at LightOn Appliance, the most powerful photonic AI / HPC co-processor on the market.
