In the United States created the world’s most powerful supercomputer, Summit

"Summit is fast, but what Summit means is even more remarkable", NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang said at Summit's debut.

Summit will be used, in part, to invigorate research on artificial intelligence, astronomy and health care.

Now, through the efforts of International Business Machines and the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the supercomputer elevates its ranking to the top of the list. If a stadium built for 100,000 people was full, and everyone in it had a modern laptop, it would take 20 stadiums to match the computing firepower of Summit.

Trump, Kim set to make history
The official said Trump and Kim would hold a one-on-one meeting on Tuesday that could last up to two hours. Kim is now scheduled to leave Singapore around 2pm on Tuesday with Trump departing on Wednesday morning.

Although the brag has come to be acknowledged as merely symbolic, the location of the world's fastest supercomputer has always been a topic of national pride among a certain kind of politically-motivated tech nerd, as well as a jumping-off point for dark predictions of machine hegemony through the use or abuse of artificial intelligence and surveillance-based data gathering. "It's going to have a profound impact in energy research, scientific discovery, economic competitiveness and national security", Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said in a statement.

Summit uses as much power as required to run 8,100 homes. Supercomputers that are five times faster - 1,000 petaflops, or an exaflop - are in the works.

Summit can perform 200 quadrillion floating-point operations per second (FLOPS), making it the "most powerful and smartest scientific supercomputer", said Dave Turek, vice president of high-performance computing and cognitive systems at IBM. However, ORNL's Titan supercomputer was 200,000 times more powerful than a desktop computer, so why make one eight times more powerful than that?

(US-NK summit) Expectations running high for successful outcomes
But last month, Trump abruptly cancelled the Singapore summit, citing the "tremendous anger and open hostility" by Pyongyang. North Korea's Kim landed Singapore's Changi Airport earlier on Sunday, in his longest trip overseas as head of state.

US lawmakers who are anxious about the amount that China is spending on AI and quantum computing, will see the supercomputer as move towards technological supremacy, especially as Beijing has vowed to strengthen its defense ties with Russian Federation as a foil to American military might. According to Tech Crunch, the computer will feature 4,608 compute servers, 22 IBM Power9 chips andsix Nvidia Tesla V100 GPUs each. Summit has begun ingesting and processing data generated by the Million Veteran Program. It will be used for research in energy, advanced materials, and artificial intelligence, among other domains, the Department of Energy said. "Summit is enabling a whole new range of science that was simply not possible before it arrived".

For IBM it is a big step forward unveiled at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. DOE's Office of Science is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
