Fugaku, the world’s fastest computer, is researching spread of Covid-19

Fugaku, which was developed by Fujitsu (FJTSF) and government research institute Riken, ranked first in the Top500 list of global supercomputers, Fujitsu and Riken announced on Tuesday. It marks the first time a Japanese system has taken the top slot since 2011.
The Top500 measures benchmarks such as processing speed and the performance of computing used in artificial intelligence and deep learning.
Fugaku can perform more than 415 quadrillion (or 415,000 trillion) computations a second, making it 2.8 times faster than Summit, the supercomputer built by IBM (IBM) which previously held the top spot.
Fugaku, the fastest supercomputer in the world, is being used to research the spread and treatment of Covid-19.
