September 16, 2020
The University of Toronto is partnering with AMD to launch SciNet4Health, a supercomputing platform that will allow the secure analysis of healthcare data using machine learning. AMD has donated one petaflop of dedicated processing power, enabling the setup of SciNet4Health’s computing infrastructure. “The new resources that we are receiving from AMD are going to allow us to set up the computing infrastructure that our health researchers need, especially right now during the time of COVID-19 when many of our faculty are working towards various solutions and positive outcomes for the pandemic,” said Alex Mihailidis, U of T’s associate vice-president, international partnerships.  U of T  (ON)
