The creators of the Chinese supercomputer Tianhe-1A , one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world are planning to use it not only to perform common computing tasks, but also for the construction planning of future cities.
As reported by the developers, Tianhe-1A can perform planning, design and manage the construction of buildings in the city. In addition, with the help of a supercomputer simulation can accurately calculate the amount of building materials needed for the construction of buildings, according to the resource peopledaily.com.cn.
“The use of the supercomputer Tianhe-1A in the development of the city subway can reduce production costs by 10-20%,” – says the head of the use of a supercomputer.
According to the creators, given the computational power of a supercomputer in 2,507,000,000,000,000 operations per second in the future, Tianhe-1A will be of immense benefit in the field of urban planning, weather forecasting, creating biomedical and other sophisticated equipment.
Recall that not only supercomputer Tianhe-1A goes beyond the “usual” he calculations. For example, a supercomputer Watson will generate recipes for cooks .
