Japan to Build 130 Petaflop ABCI Supercomputer

Today Japan announced plans to build a 130 Petaflop (half precision) supercomputer for deployment in 2017. And while such a machine would not surpass the current #1 93 Petaflop Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer in China, it would certainly propel Japan to the top of an all new category of supercomputing leadership. “ABCI is an open innovation platform with computing resources of more than hundred petaflops for world-class AI R&D. Through industry and academia collaboration, Algorithms, Big Data, and Computing Power will be leveraged in a single common public platform. ABCI will rapidly accelerate the deployment of AI into real businesses and society.”
