ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, and the IEEE Computer Society announced today that J. Gregory Pauloski from the University of Chicago’s Department of Computer Science is a recipient of the 2023 ACM-IEEE CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship. Pauloski is recognized for developing systems for optimal HPC resource usage from scalable optimization methods for deep learning training to data fabrics for sophisticated applications spanning heterogeneous resources.

Pauloski’s aim is to build tools that are approachable and easily used by HPC novices and experts alike.

His research approaches HPC from two aspects: efficient large scale machine learning (ML) training, and data fabrics that support distributed and federated scientific applications. The rapid increase in demand for AI tools (e.g., ChatGPT, LaMDA, etc.) has promoted scalable deep learning to a core challenge for HPC. Pauloski has made advancements in system software and algorithms to efficiently use novel hardware systems for AI applications. He has also worked on the development of federated applications which span heterogeneous systems composed of specialized accelerators, edge devices, cloud compute, and HPC. Pauloski’s work on data fabrics enables autonomous actors to communicate efficiently and reliably, independent of location. He will be presenting a paper on accelerating large-scale distributed workflows at the 2023 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis in November.

“Greg is imaginative, fearless in working with the largest HPC systems, and passionate about advancing HPC research,” observes Ian Foster, his co-adviser at the University of Chicago. Foster also praised his collegiality and his work as a role model and mentor for younger students.

The ACM-IEEE CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship is endowed in memory of George Michael, one of the founders of the SC Conference series. The fellowship honors exceptional PhD students throughout the world whose research focus is on high performance computing applications, networking, storage, or large-scale data analytics using the most powerful computers that are currently available. The Fellowship includes a $5,000 honorarium and travel expenses to attend the SC conference, where the Fellowships are formally presented.

“I’m deeply grateful to receive the George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship from the ACM and IEEE,” said Pauloski. “Being recognized for my work inspires me, and I thank my advisors and colleagues for their guidance and collaboration.“
