Join us for an insightful session on Computing-Data-AI, moderated by Jeanette Nilsson from RISE. The session will feature three engaging presentations followed by a dynamic panel discussion. 

Jeanette Nilsson will introduce the objectives of the session. Our first presenter is Juan Pelegrin from DG CNECT, will give a talk on AI Factories and the Commission’s AI innovation package to support Artificial Intelligence startups and SMEs. Then, Roberta Turra from CINECA will delve into the transformative capabilities of Leonardo, addressing how it meets the AI needs, access, and HPC Evolution. Next, we’ll explore plans in Karlsruhe aimed at enhancing SMEs’ access to HPC resources, alongside insights into EuroCC initiatives in Stuttgart. The discussion will extend to the broader German ecosystem, touching upon collaborative efforts with German AI Service Centers to bridge the gap between HPC and AI. Finally, Kristina Knaving will give a presentation on topics related to i-Space, data quality and bias, and how can we ensure fair society with data and AI. 

Following the presentations, a panel discussion will engage participants in a dialogue on the link between HPC and the demands of AI and Data.
