On 22 June, computer developers in Japan made an important announcement that their computer has reached the top of the world’s fastest computer race. Top500, the site making the list of world’s 500 fastest computers, has considered it the fastest.
Let us tell that America and Germany had set a benchmark on supercomputers. On this basis, computers around the world were measured. Now with this new record of Japan, it is believed that there will be some concrete help in the treatment of this virus.
Fugaku was created by the Riken Scientific Research Center, a Japanese company. Fujitsu also worked with it. Fugaku’s speed can be gauged from the fact that it can calculate 415 quadrillions in a second. It has also found out how water droplets spread through the breath.
Let us know that the highest risk of the virus is from the small drops of water released from the breath, which spread many times even with a mask.
After the year 2011, a computer in Japan has been given the status of supercomputer before that for the whole 9 years, these titles were going to Germany, sometimes America or sometimes. For two years before this, supercomputers of America had this status. His speed is nothing ahead of Fugaku.
According to The Guardian report, the Japanese computer is 2.8 times faster than that. At the same time, Fugaku is 1000 times faster than normal computers, which people like you use.
The government and scientists of Japan were working on this computer for the last 6 years. It worked day and night in Kobe City, Japan. In order to be able to solve the most difficult things in seconds, scientists put 1.5 lakh processing units in it.
Such hard work of scientists in Japan was not only meant to be ahead in any competition, but it was prepared for many special things. Japan is very sensitive to earthquakes. There have been huge losses due to this every now and then.
According to the Japanese newspaper Nikkei, Fugaku has been designed in such a way that it can assess the earthquake as well as calculate the damage caused by it. At the same time, it can suggest how to save people and essential things in the shortest possible time, while giving a proper view of the time of disasters like a tsunami.
Now experts are hoping that Fugaku will get help in the case of viruses as well. Work has also started on this. It is also believed that out of the more than 2000 medicines currently available for the treatment of viral diseases, it will be able to identify which drug is more beneficial. Along with this, those medicines will also be included, whose clinical trials have not been done yet.
By the way, due to the new virus, Scientists are also resorting to supercomputers to bridge the lack of information. American supercomputers started working on it before Japan.
This IBM supercomputer summit finds out through a variety of investigations that the drugs can be controlled or controlled by spreading the virus. In this search, 77 such chemicals have been identified that will stop the virus from wherever. It is believed that with their help the virus vaccine will be ready.
The discovery by science experts ChemRxiv of Oak Ridge National Laboratory has been published. It tells how the virus selects host cells for themselves in the human body and how they spread their infection slowly.
After identifying this host cell, which is being called the spike in the language of science, the supercomputer saw how the drugs are directly connected to that cell so that infection can be spread from the infected cell to other cells. Let me tell you that even before this, supercomputers had made important discoveries towards the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
