DescriptionThe supercomputer Fugaku has been jointly developed and installed by RIKEN and Fujitsu. Fugaku has been developed to contribute to the solution of various problems facing modern society and important issues in the field of science and technology, expected use in a wide range of fields such as big data and AI. Fugaku is the first supercomputer in history receiving the first prizes in four major supercomputer rankings, TOP500, HPCG, Graph500 and HPL-AI at the same time.

General use of Fugaku began in March 2021. Many users have started using Fugaku, and it is expected to produce many more results in the future. Fujitsu is also working on research projects using Fugaku; for example, tsunami simulation by combining conventional simulation and AI technology. Normally, computers suitable for simulation are different from those suitable for AI. Fugaku has a feature which can perform both simulation and AI processing. To utilize this feature, we have dramatically improved the efficiency of building AI for highly accurate tsunami prediction by using the generated training data directly on Fugaku for AI training. In this talk, I will discuss the prospects of the project and future of the HPC world.
