Abstract: Recently, Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications such as self-driving vehicles, robotic surgery, face recognition, and home robots have been in numerous news stories. Machine Learning (ML) - a subfield of AI – and in particular Deep Learning (DL) has gained huge attention. An overview of the current state of AI, Big Data applications, and HPC (high performance computing) will be presented. I will give examples from my past and present research in the areas of parallel computing, multi-agent systems, artificial neural networks, bioinformatics, natural language processing, deep learning, computer graphics, and spatio-temporal Big Data processing to illustrate how many of these technologies have now converged. I will also present challenges and opportunities in select applications.
