Nowadays, there is no way to imagine artificial intelligence applications without using high-performance computing systems. The huge amount of processing data, the complex structure of learning technology, time limitations, and the necessity of real-time operation require powerful computational resources and parallel algorithms. This paper analyzed another direction of convergence between high-performance computing and artificial intelligence: using artificial intelligence techniques in one of the main problems of distributed systems load balancing. The primary objective of this work is to examine the necessity of using AI concepts in load balancing and the definition of providing facilities for load balancers.
