NASA to Launch University of Pittsburgh Supercomputer into Space

A novel supercomputer developed by a University of Pittsburgh team is set to journey to the International Space Station on May 1. The supercomputer will serve as a research “sandbox” for space-based experiments on computing, sensing, image processing and machine learning. “It will be “one of the most powerful space-qualified computers ever made and flown,” said Alan George, department chair of the Swanson School of Engineering’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, who led Pitt researchers and graduate students on the project.”
