莫斯科大学校长Viktor Sadovnichy在2月8日的总统科学和教育委员会上说,在俄罗斯建立国家超级计算机基础设施尤为重要。

他补充说,俄罗斯科学和高等教育部已经批准设立工作小组,对该基础设施的概念进行研究论证。

他说:“在超级计算机整体性能方面,目前俄罗斯列全球第18位。只有两台俄罗斯超级计算机被列入年度500强名单。因此,推进超级计算机基础设施研发尤为重要。”

他说,开发超级计算机基础设施的概念是在2020年4月的总统指令中提出,要求制定改进俄罗斯超级计算机能力的方案,工作小组专门列出需要使用超级计算机的700项任务领域。


Russia must develop national supercomputer infrastructure — Moscow State University rector

NOVO-OGARYOVO, February 8. /TASS/. It is very important to create a national supercomputer infrastructure in Russia, Moscow State University Rector Viktor Sadovnichy said at a meeting of the Presidential Council for Science and Education Monday, adding that a working group had already developed the concept for such infrastructure, as approved by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

“In terms of total [supercomputer] performance Russia is in 18th place in the world. This is not high. Only two our supercomputers remain in the annual Top 500 list. […] Therefore, it is very important to implement this concept of the supercomputer infrastructure development,” Sadovnichy said.

He pointed out that the development of this concept is based on the April 2020 presidential order on working out proposals for improvement of Russian supercomputer capabilities, including those in the regions. In particular, the working group outlined 700 tasks that require the use of a supercomputer.

Commenting on development of interdisciplinary studies, the rector mentioned the COVID-19 situation. “[We must] not only evaluate social and economic losses, but, of course, develop models for prevention of similar catastrophes. […] We must improve our skills of working with big data and boost interdisciplinary studies in humanitarian sciences, employing mathematical modeling methods. It is needed, among other, for […] coordination of all national scientific projects,” he said.
