Division Director
RIKEN AICS Research Division

The AICS Research Division, which is composed of a number of research teams in computational and computer sciences, aims to be a global center achieving significant advances in science and technology through interdisciplinary collaboration across the two disciplines.

Supercomputers execute an enormous volume of computations using millions of cores simultaneously and in parallel. Developing supercomputers and extracting their full capability require close collaboration between Computational Science, which uses supercomputers, and Computer Science, which develops them. In addition to carrying out frontier research, the research teams pursue cross-disciplinary studies and develop software for advanced usage of the supercomputer K.

With the launch of the post K computer project in 2014, the Research Division is actively collaborating with the project team to carry out the co-design of the post K computer.

Through these activities, the Research Division is making new strides in the development of supercomputers, which have become truly indispensable in broad areas of science and technology ranging from particles and the universe, materials, the global environment, life and medicine, to engineering, along with frontier research in science and technology making full advantage of these powerful machines.
