Researchers are developing artificial intelligence that could assess climate change tipping points. The deep learning algorithm could act as an early warning system against runaway climate change.
Last year, Microsoft announced a billion-dollar investment in OpenAI. This year the company said they’d completed a supercomputer exclusively for OpenAI’s machine learning research.
U.S biophysicists have used the IBM-built supercomputer SUMMIT to sift through thousands of molecules and find potential compounds that could be used as a new drug against the coronavirus responsible for the current COVID-19 pandemic.
When complete, the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) will be the largest radio telescope array in the entire world. To sort through all its data, the “brain” for this massive array will consist of two supercomputers.
The supercomputer will be called Aurora and Intel is aiming to deliver it by 2021. Aurora will apply AI and high-performance computing to "areas such as cancer research and climate modeling.
After a decade of development, a million-core version of the machine that will eventually be able to simulate up to a billion neurons, The SpiNNaker supercomputer, was switched on earlier this month.
The compute module is said to provide record capacity for the space industry as well as the defense and industrial complex, using 40 percent less electricity than comparable solutions.
Since 2016, SpiNNaker has been simulating neuron activity using 500,000 core processors, but the upgraded machine has twice that capacity. Now it has the capacity to perform 200 quadrillion actions simultaneously.
A new computer model is revealing the unseen and often bizarre behaviors of particles streaming around rapidly spinning neutron stars, also known as pulsars.
Spanish researchers claim they have successfully mimicked Darwinian evolution using a quantum computer.
“Accelerated Deep Learning Discovery in Fusion Energy Science” is one projects for the Aurora supercomputer which will be operational by 2021 and will perform 1 billion billion calculations per second.
