Dark Machines (www.darkmachines.org) is an initiative to develop and apply machine learning methods to accelerate dark matter searches. It is composed of more than 300 high-energy physicists, astroparticle physicists and astrophysicists, from theory and experiment, as well as computer scientists.
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.
