This paper examines the role of HPC systems in the solution of the most AI problems, on the other hand, assesses the impact of the application of AI methods on the resolution of different tasks in distributed systems. The findings from the literature review illustrate how these two main fields of science and information technologies can be converged together for the achievement of the goals in designing and developing of the intelligent agents with the high level of intelligence, also for the solution of optimization problems in distributed systems with the increasing complexity.
