Launch of Cambridge-1: British, green and ultra-powerful supercomputer

(ETX Daily Up) – The Cambridge-1 Supercomputer, the UK’s most powerful supercomputer, was unveiled in Harlow, UK on Wednesday, July 7. Powered by completely renewable energies, this artificial health intelligence is fundamentally dedicated to researching new drugs, therapies and packages of clinical imaging, and genetic analysis.

Nvidia today unveiled its first Cambridge-1 supercomputer, an artificial intelligence dedicated to health. The 42nd most powerful supercomputer in the world (Top 500), the third European AI, this machine will deliver a system capacity of 400 betaflops with artificial intelligence performance and 8 petaflops of lineback performance (linear solution of equations). Fully powered by renewable energy, it is one of the 5 most powerful supercomputers.

“The impact of Cambridge-1 will be global, which will boost underground research that could benefit millions of people,” said Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. Growing up in the UK, healthcare can be of great help to AI patients, especially those with large data and IT needs. Although traditional medicine development is long, expensive, and highly uncertain, Cambridge-1 will help with research. Similarly, in the field of immuno-oncology, the machine may play an important role in determining the best treatment for the patient.

The Covid-19 crisis highlights the value of combining high-performance computing with medical research. “In the face of the advent of variation, supercomputing will allow vaccines to be rapidly adapted,” said Craig Rhodes, Nvidia’s head of artificial intelligence for health and biology in industry in Europe, the Middle East, the East and Africa.
