In this video from the HPC User Forum in Austin, Yutaka Ishikawa from Riken AICS presents: Japan’s post K Computer.

“Slated for delivery sometime around 2022, the ARM-based Post-K Computer has a performance target of being 100 times faster than the original K computer within a power envelope that will only be 3-4 times that of its predecessor. RIKEN AICS has been appointed as the main organization for leading the development of the Post-K. We are committed to build a world-leading, general purpose supercomputer and its applications in a coordinated way to enable maximum use of the research results and the technologies developed with the K computer.”

Prof. Dr. Yutaka Ishikawa is the Project Leader of Exascale Computing & Leader of System Software Development, RIKEN AICS & Visiting Researcher at the University of Tokyo. Yutaka Ishikawa is in charge of developing Post K computer, and he is also involved with the design of the post T2K open supercomputer based on manycore architecture at universities of Tsukuba and Tokyo. Ishikawa received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Keio University. From 1987 to 2001, he was a member of AIST (former Electrotechnical Laboratory), METI. From 1993 to 2001, he was the chief of Parallel and Distributed System Software Laboratory at Real World Computing Partnership. He led development of cluster system software called SCore, which was used in several large PC cluster systems around 2004. From 2002 to 2014, he was a professor at the University Tokyo. He led the project to design a commodity-based supercomputer called T2K open supercomputer. As a result, three universities, Tsukuba, Tokyo, and Kyoto, obtained each supercomputer based on the specification.

In related news, the next HPC User Forum events take place in Beijing Sept 22 and Oxford Sept. 29-30.
