The team designing Oak Ridge National Laboratory's new Summit supercomputer predicted the rise of data-centric computing. Summit's architecture – the way its memory is shared between processors and its ability to perform greater volumes of calculations at reduced precision – is particularly suited to deep-learning projects. The 200-petaflop machine runs Red Hat Linux as its OS, and will be fully operational by early next year.
