NVIDIA has this week launched its new Cambridge-1 supercomputer making it the United Kingdom’s most powerful supercomputer to date, enabling scientists to use the powerful combination of artificial intelligence and simulation to accelerate their research. The new NVIDIA supercomputer will help the UK bolster the country’s “world-leading life sciences industry” and represents a $1 million investment by NVIDIA, although Cambridge-1 has the potential to create an estimated value of £600 million (about $825 million) over the next 10 years for the company according to a report by Frontier Economics.
The Cambridge-1 supercomputer is NVIDIA’s first projects with AstraZeneca, GSK, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, King’s College London and Oxford Nanopore Technologies. Helping to develop a deeper understanding of brain diseases such as dementia, using AI to design new drugs and improving the accuracy of finding disease-causing variations in human genomes, explains the press release.
“Cambridge-1 brings together decades of NVIDIA’s work in accelerated computing, AI and life sciences, where NVIDIA Clara™ and AI frameworks are optimized to take advantage of the entire system for large-scale research. An NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD™ supercomputing cluster, it ranks among the world’s top 50 fastest computers and is powered by 100 percent renewable energy.”
“Cambridge-1 will empower world-leading researchers in business and academia with the ability to perform their life’s work on the U.K.’s most powerful supercomputer, unlocking clues to disease and treatments at a scale and speed previously impossible in the U.K.,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “The discoveries developed on Cambridge-1 will take shape in the U.K., but the impact will be global, driving groundbreaking research that has the potential to benefit millions around the world.”
