The Turin's High-Performance Centre for Artificial Intelligence
The University of Turin and Polytechnic University of Turin have joined forces to create a federated competence centre on High-Performance Computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data Analytics (BDA). HPC4AI is designed as a centre capable of collaborating with entrepreneurs to boost their ability to innovate on data-driven technologies and applications.
HPC4AI started in 2017 with the construction of four new federated computing laboratories completed at the end of 2020. HPC4AI is organized in two poles: one at the University of Turin (UNITO), which coordinated the design and implementation phase of HPC4AI, and another at the Polytechnic of Turin (POLITO).
All laboratories are now fully operative. More details on offered services can be found at
