CINECA to Build World's Fastest AI Supercomputer with NVIDIA
By admin - October 21, 2020

The union of Italian universities, CINECA, is working to create the world’s fastest supercomputer in Europe. The new system is called “Leonardo” and it will run on Nvidia’s 14000 GPU.

Leonardo is one of four new supercomputers being developed by European universities. The rest of the supercomputers are working in different European countries, Luxembourg, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.

CINECA plans to deploy additional supercomputers in Bulgaria, Finland, Portugal and Spain in the future. Their capabilities and launch dates are unknown at this time.

CINECA supercomputers will have many uses. Scientists hope that fast AI systems will help them decipher their genomes and develop new therapies.

These computers will also help physicists and climate scientists analyze various simulations and data. The use of AI for data analysis and forecasting and the simplification of science activities is greatly facilitated because supercomputers can process huge amounts of information in a short period of time.
