Japan sped up the race to build the fastest supercomputer

Our world is in transition, every day we see a new invention, with automation and digitization edging out more humane forms of industrial labor.

Some countries are pushing against that, but others are running towards future, Japan is one those who are willing for a digitized future.

The Japan is building world’s fastest supercomputer in an attempt to revitalize its recent malaise.

According to Reuters, the officials will spend $173 million on a computer that will be capable of achieving 130 petaflops and best in the world.

Japan’s not had a great time of it recently, because of aging workforce and slow growing economy.

Last time Japan was the king of the supercomputer was back in 2011 with Fujitsu’s K Computer topped the world rankings at 10.5 petaflops.

The company asked many companies to bid on this project named ABCI (AI Bridging Cloud Infrastructure). The winner will be announced on December 8th and expected to be completed in 2018.

When operational, Japan will rent out time on the platform to companies who currently utilize Google and Microsoft services.
