At events like Adobe MAX, NAB, or SIGGRAPH, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is always a hot topic. Creatives love what it is already doing to speed up or enhance their work, but there is almost always an underlying fear that one day, AI will replace them. Is that a valid worry, or is AI just a fad that will pass?
I made the trek to Salt Lake City to attend the Supercomputing conference. I’ve attended conferences both large and small going back 20 years, but nothing could prepare me for what I saw at Supercomputing. If you’re not familiar with Supercomputing, it’s an annual conference where scientists, researchers, and engineers gather to discuss high-performance computing, network storage and related technologies.
