Fugaku is the state-of-the-art CPU-based supercomputer for driving AI-for-Science. In this talk we highlight how Fugaku is becoming a pillar for the convergence of HPC and AI, namely high-performance systems, software, and algorithms research for artificial intelligence/machine learning. In collaboration with other research institutes working in HPC and AI-related areas in Japan, as well as globally, we are developing next-generation AI technology that will utilize state-of-the-art HPC facilities, including Fugaku.
