  • Accelerating Cancer Research with Deep Learning

    In the US, the Department of Energy (DOE) entered into a partnership with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to accelerate cancer research. This "Cancer Moonshot" aims to tackle three main objectives: to better understand the mechanisms of cancer, to encourage the use of large amounts of diverse medical data for predictive models, and to enable precision medicine by providing guidance for treatment to individual patients. Leveraging the compute expertise of DOE in high performance computing (HPC) and new methods for deep learning in artificial intelligence, this HPC+AI approach aims to create a single scalable deep neural network code called CANDLE (CANcer Distributed Learning Environment) that will be used to address all three challenges. This talk aims to give an overview of the project and highlight how GPU accelerated systems in the DOE ecosystem, Summit and Sierra, have contributed to the project
