Graphcore via Microsoft Azure offers NCL Private-Preview Access

Starting September 1st, 2020, the NCL was selected for Private-Preview access to the Graphcore IPU technology via Dell and, ultimately, Microsoft on the Azure Cloud.

This is an excellent opportunity to (a) test-drive the Graphcore technology on behalf of the whole Erasmus MC along with a few other labs; (b) rehash existing experimental platforms currently making use of Nvidia GPU solutions; and (c) attempting novel biophysical-SNN to lower-complexity ANN models on multiple IPUs.

The game is afoot!

Thank you Graphcore, Microsoft, Erasmus MC Research Suite. We will make this count 🙂
