Japanese Supercomputer for Deep Learning


Japan wants to return to the top of the supercomputer ranks. The country’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry plans to spend 19.5 billion yen ($173 million) on a new supercomputer capable of 130 petaflops.  The new computer has been named ABCI for AI Bridging Cloud Infrastructure.

130 petaflops would put this computer in the top spot (see top500 timeline here), moving the ABCI ahead of Sunway Taihulight, the current fastest supercomputer that is capable of 93 petaflops.  Deep learning is mentioned as one of the main focus areas for this supercomputer.
