165 newborns die every day of Bacterial Meningitis (BM), an aggressive infection that leaves severe sequelae among 30% of survivors. Rapid detection, particularly in this age group, is difficult due to the little specificity and overlap of its symptoms with those of more common and less severe diseases. Current strategy to improve prognosis is the prompt antibiotic treatment after an early diagnosis by means of a lumbar puncture (LP), invasive and potentially harmful procedure.
Artemisa provides a high performance computing infrastructure that operates continuously thanks to its batch system.
The facility is composed of two user-interface machines where users can develop and test their workflow and 23 machines where they can send their batch jobs. All the batch machines contain an NVIDIA GPU Volta V100 to support AI-oriented algorithms. Eleven new servers with two processors and one GPU NVIDIA Ampere A100 each and a new server with 8 GPUs of the said model are being commissioned.
