Intel and Lenovo enter into multi-year partnership over AI and HPC


Intel and Lenovo have signed a multi-year partnership agreement where both companies will focus on converging high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) to build solutions for organisations of all sizes and solve the world’s most challenging problems.

As part of the collaboration, Lenovo will be enhancing Intel’s complete portfolio of HPC and AI hardware and software solutions. Both will help accelerate the convergence of the technologies to unravel new levels of customer insight. The merging of the Lenovo Neptune liquid cooling technology together with the second Generation Intel Xeon Scalable platform has already produced significant results from joint engineering and using a unique combination of HPC IP from the two companies.

The Lenovo-Intel alliance would focus mainly on three areas:

  • Systems and solutions
  • Software optimisation for HPC and AI convergence
  • Ecosystem enablement

Currently, 173 of the TOP500 fastest supercomputers, across 19 markets, in the world run on Lenovo servers.

In addition, Microsoft recently announced £819.6m investment in OpenAI to make artificial general intelligence (AGI). Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, said: “The creation of AGI will be the most important technological development in human history, with the potential to shape the trajectory of humanity. Our mission is to ensure that AGI technology benefits all of humanity, and we’re working with Microsoft to build the supercomputing foundation on which we’ll build AGI. We believe it’s crucial that AGI is deployed safely and securely and that its economic benefits are widely distributed. We are excited about how deeply Microsoft shares this vision.”
