Collaborating On "Exascale Computers" 30 Times More Powerful Than Super Computers

-A +A

TÜBİTAK BİLGEM and UNIZG-FER (University of Zagreb) will take part in the European Union (EU) supported MEEP (The MareNostrum Experimental Exascale Platform) project, which started on January 1, 2020 and will be coordinated by BSC (Barcelona Supercomputing Center).

The MEEP project is a project integrated into the EU program EuroHPC's future exascale (at least 30 times stronger than supercomputers) supercomputers and shaped to create competitive European technology in this regard. In particular, it aims to develop a supercomputing infrastructure for the development, integration, testing and common design of various technologies that can form part of the intellectual property (IP) based exascale systems developed by Europe. The ultimate goal is to create an open source full-stack (software and hardware) ecosystem that can form the basis of many European systems, both high performance and embedded computing.

With the project to which TÜBİTAK BİLGEM will contribute on digital design and computer architecture technologies, it is planned to enable the development of software for current and future HPC applications, including artificial intelligence workloads that occur among many sectors from medicine to automobile, and is of great importance in this regard.

The MEEP project has received funding from the European High Performance Computing Joint Venture (JU) under the grant agreement No. 946002.
