Next Generation High Performance Architecture Research Team
RIKEN Center for Computational Science
(Team Leader: Masaaki Kondo)

[Research Field]
RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS), led by Center Director Satoshi Matsuoka, is an international research center in high performance computing and computational science in Japan. Our objectives are to investigate "the Science of (high performance) computing, by computing, and for computing", to research and develop our technologies (R-CCS technology) and software (R-CCS software), which we consider our core competence, in order to produce world-leading scientific and engineering results for use in Japan as well as globally.

Also, R-CCS started operating Japan's national flagship supercomputer, the K computer, as a shared national facility to support a wide range of research activities in 2011. Following K's success, development work on its successor, Supercomputer Fugaku, was launched in April 2014.

For the purposes of enhancing utilization of the K supercomputer and the Fugaku supercomputer as well as advancing future parallel computing technologies, the Next Generation High Performance Architecture team is intended to tackle the following research agendas:

1.Ultra high-bandwidth architecture based on novel technologies such as next generation non-volatile memory, stacked 3-D memory, as well as advanced optical interconnect

2.Re-evaluation of non von Neumann architectures such as dataflow and systolic arrays based on latest advances in device technologies

3.Acceleration of machine learning and neuromorphic computing as well as advancement of scientific simulations utilizing those technologies

4.Next generation ultra power-efficient architectures based on the integration of various types of accelerators and general purpose processors

5.Hybrid computing architectures that combine the benefits of quantum computing and classical computing

6.Next generation ultra-fast optical interconnect and optical switches

7.Detailed co-design evaluation of next generation architectures above as well as the algorithms taking advantage of them on the Fugaku
