Rappelons que
- la consommation énergétique de la France est toujours 2/3 fossile
- la France a raté son objectif EnR européen en 2019, ce qui lui coute 500 M€ de pénalité
- les coupures et délestages seront de rigueur cet hiver s'il y a des périodes de grand froid
Rappelons que

On #biocompute news, $TSLA Tesla AI day gave some technical details on how they do their training and video labelling. It seems $NVDA Nvidia GPUs are the norm, with a 14,000 HPC heavily optimised on the software side. #pytorch #AVX2 #CUDA #SMT #smol #CUDNN Image
None of this is for the purpose of #Bioinformatics applications, rather here it's for Full Self-Driving software, but the technical details show some choices for high-throughput #AI training that one could compare to the #ComputationalBiology #ComputeAcceleration world.
