CSAIL to Help DARPA Develop New Supercomputer

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) launched an initiative this week to fast-track the development of next-generation supercomputers. CSAIL is among four organizations tapped by the newly-founded Ubiquitous High Performance Computing (UHPC) program to help build the new system.

A prototype of an exascale, energy-efficient computer is planned for 2018. DARPA is hoping to far outstrip Moore's Law, which predicts a much more gradual rate of computational development. Other organizations involved include Intel, Nvidia, and Sandia National Laboratory. Click here to read more about the project.
