21.01.2020 Swiss AI startup Deep Cube breaks World Record
Biopôle Lausanne based start-up Deep Cube collaborated with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to break the world record for calculating the largest “Golden Ratio”. An important achievement showcasing the expertise of the company with the goal to develop artificial intelligence healthcare detection technologies in Dermato-Oncology and the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease.
The “Golden Ratio” is an irrational number that goes on infinitely after its decimal point. Vaud startup Deep Cube used the HPE Apollo 6500 System, which is purpose-built for high-performance computing (HPC) and deep learning workloads, to achieve a record-breaking 20 trillion digits following the decimal point (or 20 times 1000 billion or 20 Tera Digits). The result was achieved in just 6 days and 34 hours, surpassing a previous record of 16 trillion digits calculated in 12.6 days.
This synergy between the Deep Cube algorithms and the HPE Apollo 6500 System allows the limits of current records to be pushed back. « We smashed a speed record. In the end we calculated about 2 times faster than the previous record. For Deep Cube, this global computing record that I made with our AI engineers Alexandre Gouy and Cyril Hsu, uses HPC architectures from HPE and shows the synergy between mathematics and computing power of a massively parallel server. Infinite mathematical matrices will be at the heart of tomorrow’s collective intelligence. The neural networks of DEEP CUBE solve the diagnosis of diseases such as cancer or neurological diseases, thanks to mathematics, to enable humans to invent the collective medical intelligence » comments Chris Patris de Broé, founder and CEO of Deep Cube.
