SUMMARY:P30 - High Performance Computing Meets Approximate Bayesian Infere
nce
DESCRIPTION:Poster\n\nLisa Gaedke-Merzhäuser (Università della Svizzera it
aliana), Haavard Rue (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology),
and Olaf Schenk (Università della Svizzera italiana)\n\nDespite the ongoi
ng advancements in Bayesian computing, large-scale inference tasks continu
e to pose a computational challenge that often requires a trade-off betwee
n accuracy and computation time. Combining solution strategies from the fi
eld of high-performance computing with state-of-the-art statistical learni
ng techniques, we present a highly scalable approach for performing spatia
l-temporal Bayesian modelling based on the methodology of integrated neste
d Laplace approximations (INLA). The spatial-temporal model component is r
eformulated as the solution to a discretized stochastic partial differenti
al equation which induces sparse matrix representations for increased comp
utational efficiency. We leverage the power of today’s distributed compute
architectures by introducing a multi-level parallelism scheme throughout
the algorithm. Moreover, we rethink the computational kernel operations an
d derive GPU-accelerated linear algebra solvers for fast and reliable mode
l predictions.\n\nSession Chair: Jibonananda Sanyal (National Renewable En
