Super computer
The U.S. Department of Energy announced Tuesday it will build a next generation supercomputer – which will be five times faster than today’s most powerful computers – at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. US Senator Lamar Alexander says the announcement is “even more proof that Oak Ridge's brainpower, energy research and technological capabilities are the best in the world.” Alexander said many countries want to be first in advanced computing. He points out the stakes are high because the winner has an advantage in advanced manufacturing and artificial intelligence. According to the department, the supercomputer, to be known as “Frontier,” is scheduled to be completed in 2021 and will accelerate innovation in science and technology, and maintain U.S. leadership in high-performance computing and artificial intelligence. Since 2005, Oak Ridge National Laboratory has deployed Jaguar, Titan, and Summit, all of which have been ranked as the world’s fastest supercomputers.
