The National Center for Supercomputing Applications today announced that DeltaAI, the companion system to Delta, will be powered by the NVIDIA GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip to provide powerful compute capabilities for simulation and data science.

DeltaAI will enable scientists and researchers to tackle the world’s most challenging problems by accelerating complex artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing applications running terabytes of data. NCSA announced a $10 million award from the National Science Foundation in July to deploy DeltaAI.

With the growing demand for AI computing resources among all domains of research, we are excited to be able to provide these tools to the academic community with the help of NVIDIA technology. NCSA greatly values collaborations with industry partners to aid in building advanced computing resources – like DeltaAI – for scientists and researchers to use in tackling the world’s grandest challenges.

Expected to come online in 2024, DeltaAI will triple NCSA’s AI-focused computing capacity and greatly expand the capacity available within the NSF-funded advanced computing ecosystem. NCSA will utilize advanced web-based interfaces that will make DeltaAI more accessible to the growing community of research domains employing AI methods in their research, furthering its mission to democratize high-performance computing.
