Post-K Co-Design and Applications
Scientific Software Development
TimeMonday, June 17th4:40pm - 5pm
DescriptionDuring development the Post-K computer, highest priority will be given to creating a system capable of contributing to the solution of various scientific and societal issues. For this, the hardware and software will be developed in a coordinated way (Co-design), with the aim to make it usable in a variety of fields. Nine social and scientific priority issues to be tackled by using the Post-K computer are, (a) Achievement of a society that provides health and longevity (1. Innovative drug discovery infrastructure through functional control of biomolecular systems, 2. Integrated computational life science to support personalized and preventive medicine), (b) Disaster prevention and global climate problems (3. Development of integrated simulation systems for hazards and disasters induced by earthquakes and tsunamis, 4. Advancement of meteorological and global environmental predictions utilizing observational “Big Data”), (c) Energy problems (5. Development of new fundamental technologies for high-efficiency energy creation, conversion/storage and use, 6. Accelerated development of innovative clean energy systems), (d) Enhancement of industrial competitiveness (7. Creation of new functional devices and high-performance materials to support next-generation industries（CDMSI）, 8. Development of innovative design and production processes that lead the way for the manufacturing industry in the near future) and (e) Development of basic science (9. Elucidation of the fundamental laws and evolution of the universe). In this talk, achievements of these 9 priority issues and efforts towards Co-design will be described.
