Supercomputer to Be Built in Bulgaria by 2020

Supercomputer to Be Built in Bulgaria by 2020

17.6.2019
June 17 (BTA) - A supercomputer will be built in Bulgaria, said here on Monday European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Digital Society Maria Gabriel during a news conference after meeting with Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and the Director General of DG CONNECT (Directorate General of Communication, Networks, Content and Technology) at the European Commission (EC), Roberto Viola. This will make Bulgaria one of eight countries with such a European supercomputer, the EU Commissioner explained. Gabriel said that the total investments adds up to 1 billion euro, of which 486 million euro are provided by the EC. The remainder will come from Member States and private partnerships. The project in Bulgaria costs 18 million euro, 12 million of which will come from Bulgaria and the remaining 6 million euro - from the EC, she said, adding that this supercomputer should be up and running by 2020. Roberto Viola noted that this is the largest EU investment in Bulgaria related to scientific infrastructure. According to him, the computer to be built in this country will be as powerful as the one in NASA's centre. "This will be the most powerful supercomputer in Eastern Europe," he added. There will be an opportunity to introduce artificial intelligence, which could be used to predict tornadoes, thunderstorms and earthquakes. The Bulgarian supercomputer will be connected to a network between all the European computers. Boyko Borissov added that this centre will be predominantly staffed by Bulgarians and will be built in Sofia's Tech Park. The Prime Minister commented that this supercomputer will offer Bulgaria huge opportunities and allow for the testing of car parts, bridges and buildings. It will work round-the-clock, he said. Borissov noted that no such machines currently exist in Eastern Europe, which puts Bulgaria in a completely different role in the field of innovations, science and high technology.
