After six months of celebrations, Indiana University (IU) officially marked its bicentennial on Monday – and it saved the best for last, inaugurating Big Red 200, a new AI-focused supercomputer that joins the ranks of the fastest academic supercomputers in the world.
IU spotlighted a number of applications for Big Red 200 in the earth sciences. “Big Red 200 is a unique opportunity to do some really amazing work and really get high throughput, faster simulations, better simulations, in order to better understand how the climate system works,” said Ben Kravitz, assistant professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at IU. Natasha MacBean, assistant professor of geology at IU, said that Big Red 200 will allow them to “better test the models, constrain uncertainty and test future scenarios of how we use and manage the land.”
