The TERATEC Forum, the largest event in France dedicated to digital and supercomputing technologies

Coupled with the Cloud, artificial intelligence (AI) blurs technological boundaries and barriers, particularly in terms of computing power and data transfer. New supercomputing environments and the promises of quantum computing have thus become crucial enablers in the AI ​​ecosystem. With the advent of exascale, these digital technologies are changing even further! Their convergence can provide the power and skills needed to push the boundaries of academic research and industrial innovation. But how can we combine these technologies and take full advantage of their potential? For what applications and for what uses?

The TERATEC 2024 Forum, the digital power performance accelerator

For two days, at the Parc floral de Paris, more than 1,300 professional users and suppliers of cutting-edge digital technologies, as well as major researchers and decision-makers, come together to answer these essential questions. Placed under the sign of the acceleration of digital power, the 2024 edition gives you all the keys to the latest advances and applications of these technologies which must, more than ever, reconcile performance, flexibility, ethics and frugality. Don’t miss the digital power of tomorrow, it’s at the Teratec 2024 Forum!

Update the major issues of the moment!

At the Teratec Forum, a major annual meeting in Europe, major industrialists, leading technology companies and the best European experts in the fields of digital simulation, high-performance computing, massive data processing, artificial intelligence and of quantum computing come to exchange and share their points of view, their insights and their strategies, to inspire new horizons of innovation, imagine new applications, develop their competitiveness and together push the frontiers of digital magnitudes!

The key is meetings, highlights and a program of unequaled richness to debate and deepen the major scientific, economic, societal and industrial issues which underlie the mastery of technologies determining for the competitiveness and the future of the France and Europe, and move the lines of performance in digital power and artificial intelligence: prospective vision, expert analyses, mind-blowing keynotes, high-level technical workshops, inspiring round tables, etc.

What is the use of exascale?

A vital part of academic research and industrial innovation, high-performance computing (HPC) enables large, complex problems to be solved in much less time and at lower cost than traditional computing. A decisive step has been taken in the race for computing power with the advent of exascale supercomputers, and future post-exascale architectures in sight. What purpose ? What use cases will post-exascale make possible? What about digital frugality? These exciting questions will be debated between technology providers and renowned users during our Exascale and post-exascale, what is the use? What impacts?, Wednesday May 29, 2024 at 9:45 a.m.

What hybridization between AI and HPC?

While meeting traditional intensive computing needs, a growing number of supercomputers are adapting to the needs of artificial intelligence. How are their infrastructures transforming to meet the needs of AI? Is the hybridization of architectures feasible and/or desirable in order to address both the computing powers linked to simulation and AI? Don’t miss the round table Generative AI and computing power: what hybridization? Wednesday May 29, 2024 at 11:45 a.m.

At the heart of deeptech

Innovation, financing, support, recruitment, marketing, etc.: how to encourage deeptech entrepreneurial projects, accelerate their development, promote them internationally, avoid mistakes and make a difference? Is the French ecosystem up to the task? Investors, startup coaches and renowned French champions will address all these questions around our Deeptech round table: how to create the French champions of tomorrow? Thursday May 30, 2024 at 3:35 p.m.
