High Performance Computing (HPC) has an integral role to play in Data Science and Machine Learning.  The combination of software tools, computational resources, networking, and data storage has allowed large scale prediction and inference to be applied in a myriad of domains including image processing, voice recognition, and anomaly detection, to name but a few.   In this talk we will highlight some current connections between HPC and Data Science, including large scale dimension reduction and deep learning.  In particular, we will illustrate how combinations of fast CPUs and high-performance Graphical Processing Units (GPU) have enabled new approaches and products.
