CoE RAISE is a European Centre of Excellence for Research on AI- and Simulation-Based Engineering at Exascale (CoE RAISE) and works closely together with NCC Iceland in a variety of engineering, AI, and scientific disciplines, including training.
This seminar informs about the general Interaction Room technique that facilitates interdisciplinary collaboration in complex software projects, emphasizing intertwined AI and HPC. An Interaction Room is a (physical or virtual) room that is outfitted with several large analogue or digital whiteboards known as canvases. They are used to visualize and facilitate discussion of critical aspects of a complex software system. Each canvas is dedicated to modeling a particular perspective on the system. The key difference to other modelling techniques is that models in the Interaction Room are kept deliberately informal. Hence, the goal is not to create a perfect specification but to encourage stakeholders from diverse backgrounds to discuss those aspects that are essential to the software project’s success.
The seminar demonstrates how the CoE RAISE aims to perform co-design with this Interaction Room technique to understand the domain requirements, understand technical restrictions, identify aspects of particular scientific value, and identify the most critical risks of those projects. The seminar further outlines initial lessons learned in intertwined HPC and AI applications. Using the Interaction Room at an early project stage helps prevent costly misunderstandings and oversights later on and has already proven helpful in numerous complex information systems projects.
