Operation of the K computer has ended in August, 2019.
Society faces a number of urgent challenges, especially in the areas of climate change and sustainability. To solve these dilemmas, leading research and ICT players need to pool knowledge and accelerate the development of cutting-edge supercomputing power.
Japan's leading research institute RIKEN chose Fujitsu to develop one of the world's most powerful supercomputers, the K computer. As part of the High Performance Computing Infrastructure Initiative led by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), the K computer will be used to solve the energy, sustainability, healthcare, climate change, industrial and space challenges facing society today.
