University in Warsaw launches Cato supercomputer programme

The Cato supercomputer has been launched at the UKSW Digital Science and Technology Center. It is designed to perform high performance computing (HPC), extended with artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance data analysis (HPDA). It will enable the implementation of modeling and simulation of phenomena and processes based on large data sets.

The UKSW supercomputer uses technology that forms the backbone of Summit, one of the fastest supercomputers in the world, powered by IBM POWER9 processors.

One of the ​​pieces of research deploying the supercomputer will be investigating energy systems and how energy production and storage are dispersed. As the university’s prof. Marek Niezgódka said, this is a completely new situation when it comes to data processing.

The supercomputer is part of the research infrastructure financed under the project Multidisciplinary Research Center UKSW from the EU funds of the Regional Operational Programme of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship.
