World’s most powerful supercomputer used for coronavirus research

IBM Summit, recognised as the world’s mightiest supercomputer, is being used by researchers to identify chemical compounds that could contribute to the fight against coronavirus.

Researchers were afforded emergency computation time on the machine, which performs analysis at an unrivalled pace. Summit reportedly generated results within 1-2 days, as opposed to the months it would have taken standard computing systems to produce equivalent results.
