AI Computer Debuts at Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren

The Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division is testing a DGX H100 artificial intelligence computer’s full capability to help its personnel analyze voluminous data more rapidly than a regular processing tool. 

Called Naval Gold Standard AI Computer, the workstation is located at the NSWCDD’s Innovation Lab for AI machine learning tasks and complex graphics processing, according to the division’s report on the Naval Sea Systems Command website. 

The NSWCDD personnel can tap the DGX H100 to explore, develop and mature technology. Multi-department collaboration is another potential use of the supercomputer.

A cooperative research and development agreement with software company NVIDIA, which developed the DGX H100 system, and funding from the Naval Innovative Science and Engineering facilitated the computer acquisition, NSWCDD said

According to Ben Goldman, an engineer at the NSWCDD’s Autonomous Weapons Branch, the work that takes “days or weeks” for his peers could be completed in “less than an hour” with the DGX H100’s help. He added that the AI computer provides the opportunity to ensure that the division’s scientists and engineers have the resources to solve difficult problems readily through approaches they could not use before.
