The University of Florida’s supercomputer, known as HiPerGator, is being put through the paces on more than 800 research projects across all 16 of UF’s colleges, accelerating impactful work that might have previously been unfeasible or even impossible. Built with $50 million in support from UF alumnus Chris Malachowsky and tech company NVIDIA, which he co-founded, the machine is one of the fastest AI supercomputers in academia.
A new artificial intelligence computer program created by researchers at UF and NVIDIA can generate doctors’ notes so well that two physicians couldn’t tell the difference, according to an early study from both groups. UF alumnus and NVIDIA co-founder Chris Malachowsky is the namesake of UF’s new Malachowsky Hall for Data Science & Information Technology. A public-private partnership between UF and NVIDIA helped to fund this $150 million structure. In 2021, UF upgraded its HiPerGator supercomputer to elite status with a multimillion-dollar infrastructure package from NVIDIA, the first at a university.
Designed to set the standard for future STEM buildings across national and international campuses and transform the artificial intelligence (AI) and data science workforce, the University of Florida Friday held a celebratory ribbon cutting for the Malachowsky Hall for Data Science & Information Technology.
The University of Florida’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering announced today the establishment of the Florida Semiconductor Institute, a campus- and state-wide coordinating hub to provide intellectual and technological leadership for semiconductors in the 21st Century.
Congratulations to former Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering dean Cammy Abernathy, who is the recipient of the UF Alumni Association’s Golden Gators Philanthropic Leadership Award.
Chris A. Malachowsky (UF BSEE ’80) co-founder and NVIDIA Fellow of visual computer graphics vanguard NVIDIA, has made a philanthropic commitment to position UF as a national leader in AI education and research.
Chris Malachowsky (BSEE ’80), NVIDIA Corp. co-founder and a leading force behind the university’s ambitious initiative to become “America’s A.I. University,” is one of the 2022 honorees in the University of Florida’s prestigious Academy of Golden Gators.
The University of Florida announced a new collaboration with tech giant IBM to launch a comprehensive skills program designed to extend UF’s vision to be an international leader in artificial intelligence, data science, fintech, and other related technologies that can help solve society’s biggest challenges.
UF in July announced a $100-million public-private partnership with NVIDIA that will catapult UF’s research strength to address some of the world’s most formidable challenges, create unprecedented access to AI training and tools for under-represented communities, and build momentum for transforming the future of the workforce.
UF will house the fastest AI supercomputer in higher education.
