InspireSemi To Participate in RISC-V Workshop and BoF Panel Discussion at SC23

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inspire Semiconductor Holdings Inc. (TSXV: INSP) (“InspireSemi” or the “Company”), a chip design company that provides revolutionary high-performance, energy-efficient accelerated computing solutions for HPC, AI, graph analytics, and other compute-intensive workloads, is pleased to announce that it will participate in two sessions at the annual SC23, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis, in Denver, Colorado, being held from November 12-17, 2023.

Doug Norton, InspireSemi’s Chief Marketing Officer, will give a lightning talk on the Thunderbird next generation compute accelerator for HPC, AI, and graph analytics at the workshop on RISC-V for HPC being held from 2:00 P.M. - 5:30 P.M. MST on Monday, November 13.

The following day Doug will participate on a Birds of a Feather panel that will discuss the RISC-V ecosystem’s extraordinary recent growth and potential to revolutionize supercomputing. As part of the discussion, he will highlight the benefits of RISC-V and how it can best support current and future HPC & AI research and development. Joining InspireSemi on the panel are representatives from Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), Los Alamos National Lab (LANL), Codeplay Software, Tactical Computing Laboratories, and Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC).

Doug will also be available throughout the show, to connect with journalists, analysts, partners and industry leaders, as they explore new opportunities for applications involving InspireSemi’s recently announced Thunderbird accelerated computing platform.

“We are excited to be speaking at SC23 this year and look forward to discussing how our Thunderbird accelerated computing platform is leveraging the open standard RISC-V ISA to deliver high performance, energy efficiency, and ease of programming to HPC and AI markets,” said Doug Norton, CMO, InspireSemi. “Thunderbird’s unique “supercomputer-cluster-on-a-chip” architecture, coupled with its predictive performance and deterministic nature, make our solution a very attractive offering for a number of applications and industries where GPUs simply do not work. We anticipate a strong interest at SC23 and look forward to reinforcing that InspireSemi is a leader in the HPC industry.”

The lightning talk will be held as part of the RISC-V in HPC workshop Monday afternoon and the Q&A Panel is scheduled from 5:15 P.M. - 6:45 P.M. on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, as part of SC23 at the Colorado Convention Center. Additional details related to the event are available at:
