Learning Machines

How do supercomputers change industry, medicine and the working world? And how can our research support companies in implementing these changes? A video clip about these special machines at the Jülich Supercomputing Center and how they can help shape our digital future.

A computing power equivalent to more than 300,000 modern PCs is provided by the JUWELS supercomputer constructed by Forschungszentrum Jülich and its partners and completed in recent months. This makes JUWELS the fastest computer in Europe. Picture: Forschungszentrum Jülich / Wilhelm-Peter Schneider

How can supercomputers assist us in living and working in the future? How can our research in turn support companies in putting this into practice? This is precisely where the Agency for Cognitive Computing at the Jülich Supercomputing Center (JSC) comes in to help us shape our digital future.

In a video blog post, reporter Johannes Döbbelt takes viewers to the Jülich supercomputers and, in a discussion with Andreas Lintermann from the Institute for Advanced Simulation at JSC, gives them an insight not only into the futuristic giant computers, but also into the possibilities that the concentrated computing power opens up for science.

However, at Jülich one does not only focus on research: as a knowledge incubator and major employer, the FZJ is also interested in shaping the structural change in the Rhineland. With the help of scientific innovations in the three future-oriented fields of information, energy and bioeconomy, the research center wants to contribute to the creation of new value-added chains that will maintain high-quality jobs in the region and at the same time create new jobs. Jülich computer technology can also contribute to this.
