Machine learning and the post-Dennard era of climate simulation Conventional computational hardware has reached some physical limits: the phenomenon known as ‘Dennard scaling’ gave rise to Moore’s Law, and many cycles of exponential growth in computing capacity. The consequence is that we now anticipate a computing future of increased concurrency and slower arithmetic. Earth system […]
Venkatramani Balaji has joinded LSCE-IPSL as a « Make our planet great again » (MOPGA) laureate for a five-year period. He will work in close collaboration with the Climate Modelling Centre of the IPSL on his project entitled HRMES (High Resolution Modeling of the Earth System). He proposes to use machine learning techniques to tackle uncertainties in […]
A training course about the running environment of IPSL models will take place on 27th and 28th of November at IDRIS in Orsay. This course is for beginners and for people who want to refresh their memory. The program for these two days is: overview of modipsl/libIGCM tools, how to launch a simulation, the post-processing […]
