AI Frameworks and Tools

General AI Frameworks

AI frameworks provide building blocks for designing and training machine learning and deep learning models. The following AI frameworks are available on HiPerGator.

  • PyTorch is a deep learning framework developed by Facebook AI Research Lab and has interfaces for Python, Java, and C++, which is most commonly used with Python. It supports training on both GPU and CPUs, as well as distributed training and multi-GPU models.
  • TensorFlow is an open-source AI framework/platform developed by the Google Brain team. Keras is an open-source neural network library that runs on top of TensorFlow. With TensorFlow 2.0, the Keras API has been integrated into TensorFlow's core library and serves as a high-level Python interface for TensorFlow. TensorFlow supports both GPU and CPUs, as well as multi-GPU and distributed training.
  • Tensorboard is a visualization tool for monitoring neural network training.
  • Sci-kit learn is a Python library for machine learning and statistical modeling. It is available in many of the Python modules on HiPerGator.
  • Matlab provides convenient toolboxes for machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, and automatic driving, which are supported on both CPUs and GPUs.
  • RAPIDS AI is a suite of CUDA-enabled open-source software libraries and APIs by NVIDIA. It accelerates end-to-end data science pipelines by providing a familiar dataframe API. It supports machine learning integration without the typical serialization costs and enables multi-node, multi-GPU deployments for faster processing of large datasets.
  • Fastai simplifies training fast and accurate neural nets using modern best practices. It can be used without any installation by using Google Colab.
  • Triton is a Nvidia Inference Server that provides a cloud and edge inferencing solution optimized for both CPUs and GPUs. Triton supports an HTTP/REST and GRPC protocol that allows remote clients to request inferencing for any model being managed by the server.

Simulation and Modeling HiPerGator supports advanced simulation tools, including NVIDIA Modulus and Omniverse, to predict the behavior of systems within a real-world scenario.

  • Nvidia Modulus is a neural network framework that blends the power of physics in the form of governing partial differential equations (PDEs) with data to build high-fidelity, parameterized surrogate models with near-real-time latency. Examples of running modulus on HiperGator are available on /data/ai/examples/pinn/modulus or AI_Examples.
  • Nvidia Omniverse provides a platform for virtual collaboration and real-time photorealistic simulation. It allows developers, designers, and engineers to collaborate in simulated environments, facilitating the creation of complex simulations that integrate physical accuracy and visual fidelity.
