About HPC4AI

HPC4AI, the Turin’s High-Performance Centre for Artificial Intelligence (coord. Prof. Marco Aldinucci)

The first goal of HPC4AI is to establish a large and modern laboratory to co-design with industries and SMEs research and technology transfer projects. HPC4AI has been co-funded by Regione Piemonte via EU POR-FESR 2014-2020 with 4.5M€ and will ready for service at beginning of 2019.

HPC4AI@UNITO is a research infrastructure aiming at aims at designing, developing and operating experimental, innovative applications and services at the convergence between High-Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence. HPC4AI@UNITO is part of the federated cloud infrastructures organised in 4 data-centres funded with 4.5M€ by Piedmont Region, the University of Torino and the Polytechnic University of Torino under the INFRA-P 2018 call.
