Re: Supercomputers
Scott -- I had today a teleconference with several scientists working on exascale supercomputer projects in Europe. It seems like they expect these systems to be online by early 2020s. -Susan

Re: Supercomputers
@Susan: The US has certainly fell behind in this part of computer science. I'm not sure if the government grants will help but it will be interesting to see when and how these systems come online and will that actually perform as advertised.

Re: Supercomputers
Scott, yes, super interesting. It will make dramatic changes in AI, machine learning, and everything else. I have been on it lately. I know the US is also working on an Exascale computer, but they don't expect to have the prototype ready before 2023. China's will be ready this year. So it's at least a six-year gap. Thanks for the link. I will check it out. -Susan

Re: Supercomputers
@Susan: The exascale stuff is interesting. I know that Japan is building a machine that is supposed to scale to some 130 petaflops and that will be used for AI and machine learning research. Also, the US is trying to catch up as well: http://www.enterprisecloudnews.com/author.asp?section_id=571&doc_id=733803

Supercomputers
Data and AI are, indeed, are driving faster developments in supercomputing power in order to cover today's needs. China has announced that its Exascale supercomputer prototype will be completed this year. This will be the world's first fully functional Exascale supercomputer. Exascale supercomputers and their applications will be more powerful that the Petascales. Think of calculations of 18 zeros per second, and the massive volumes of data processed. Crazy, isn't it? Lenovo is certainly doing the right thing keeping a foot in the supercomputing space. -Susan
