Location: Riken Computer Science Center, Kobe, Japan


Performance: 0.44 exaFLOPS


Announcement of operations: June 2020


Fugaku was the most powerful supercomputer in the world from June 2020 to June 2022. Scientists have used it to tackle a number of important studies over the years.


During the Covid-19 pandemic, it was used to confirm that masks made of non-woven fabric could block airborne droplets better than regular fabric masks. Currently Fugaku trains large Japanese AI language models following the ChatGPT framework.


5. Lumi

Lumi started trial runs in June 2021 and will operate at full capacity from February 2023. It is used jointly by researchers across Europe for collaborative research and is optimized for AI-based work. It is also a "partner" of two quantum computers QAL 9000 and Helmi in Finland. This quantum-classical computing collaboration helps scientists have the best quantum computers combined with supercomputers today.
