Brown-IBM Supercomputing Partnership
In 2009, Brown and long-time partner IBM opened a multimillion-dollar supercomputer at Brown’s Center for Computation and Visualization. The supercomputer could perform 14 trillion calculations per second, making it the most powerful computational system in Rhode Island. Faculty and student researchers would use the machine to tackle “grand challenges” in climate change, energy, education and health.
