The World’s First Supercomputer Goes Into Self-Sustaining Mode: A Supercomputer Named R2-S2
- by admin
An Australian supercomputer named R2S2 has gone into self-sustaining mode, after spending five years on the outside of its enclosure.
The new computer, named R1S, was designed to be the world’s first “supercomputer” in an attempt to create a supercomputer for the 21st century, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
R1 was designed with a goal of making it possible for the government to run a $100 billion supercomputer in the coming decades.
The Australian government is looking for a private sector partner to build R1.
The program will require $100 million from a private company.
The ABC says that after spending seven years on a virtual laboratory and testing, R1 will be ready for its initial launch in 2022.
It is also the first computer ever built by Australia to have its own self-replicating artificial intelligence (AI) system.
This is significant because it means that the system can learn and improve without any external support.
R1, however, does not have its operating system, so it will not be able to run other computer software like Microsoft Office or Google Docs.
Instead, it will run the Microsoft Azure cloud computing platform.
The system has a 100-petaflop (billion cycles per second) processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 graphics card, 128GB of RAM, and a 4TB hard drive.
The project was a collaboration between the Australian National University (ANU), the University of Sydney, and the University, of Queensland.
The goal of R1 is to make it possible to create new computing paradigms in the future, said ANU professor Peter Thiele.
“We believe we’ve done a very good job of creating a platform for AI to be able grow to the level where it could be used to create very efficient computing,” he told ABC News.
“And that’s really important because that means we’re able to build things that are scalable to different kinds of workloads.”
R1 has been tested against other supercomputers and found to be efficient and scalable.
The company is hoping to begin building its first supercomputer this year.
It has been designed to simulate the future computing needs of the United States.
“In the past, if you needed to build a system that could scale from the US, you would need to go through a lot of different processes and build it from scratch, which is very expensive,” Thiely said.
“You’re essentially doing the same thing with R1.”
This is important because it is a significant step forward in the race to create supercomputing, he said.
The R1 supercomputer was developed by the University at Albany, and is being built using a partnership with the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science.
The research is being funded by the National Science Foundation.
“What we’ve seen is a number of supercomputation projects that have been built using traditional technologies like lasers, vacuum tubes, and optical fibers,” said Dr. David Einhorn, head of the University’s Centre for Advanced Computer Science.
“But, in a lot or a large part, those are very costly to build, they’re very expensive to run, and they’re limited in terms of the number of machines they can run.”
This technology is particularly important to supercomposers like R1 because they use laser beams to create images that simulate the effects of light and matter on a computer.
“If you look at the amount of data you can perform, it’s limited by the size of the computer,” said Thieles.
“So, for instance, if I wanted to create an image of the universe, for a supercomputer, you’d need to have the size and the bandwidth of the world to do it.”
The project also has a big potential for supercomposition in the 2150s.
As supercomputed images become more common, they will be able not only to create realistic images of the cosmos, but also to analyze the effects that gravity, light, and matter have on the world around us.
“With supercomprehensive images of Earth and the Sun and other planets and stars and cosmic rays, it means we can actually make predictions of how they’re going to behave in the universe,” said Einhor.
R2 is currently the world leader in supercombinational computing. “
I think that’s going to have a very big impact on how we think about space, and how we look at planets and what they might look like.”
R2 is currently the world leader in supercombinational computing.
In the future it may have a huge impact on the search for life.
