Together with NVIDIA and, NOAA will host a virtual GPU Hackathon starting February 21 and concluding March 2, 2022. GPU Hackathons provide exciting opportunities for scientists to accelerate their AI research or HPC codes under the guidance of expert mentors from National Labs, Universities and Industry leaders in a collaborative environment. The NOAA Hackathon is a multi-day event designed to help teams of three to six developers accelerate their own codes on GPUs using a programming model, or machine learning framework of their choice. Each team is assigned mentors for the duration of the event.

This Hackathon is open to everyone looking to take their code to the next level; however, priority acceptance will be given to NOAA affiliated scientists and their collaborators. Since space is limited, additional hackathons will be scheduled if there is high interest.
