China News Service, Jiaxing, September 25 (Shi Zinan) Zhejiang Province's first large-scale supercomputing center-Zhejiang (Yangtze River Delta) new generation of full-featured intelligent supercomputing center (hereinafter referred to as "Wuzhen Light" supercomputing center) officially on the 25th Completed and activated.
In November 2020, with the help of the World Internet Conference and Internet Development Forum, the "Light of Wuzhen" and the project of an intelligent manufacturing base with an annual output of 200,000 high-end servers started construction.
After 10 months, Zhejiang's "most powerful brain" finally unveiled the mystery.
In 2020, the total operating income of the artificial intelligence industry in Zhejiang Province is 269.343 billion yuan, an increase of 11.99% over the previous year. Among them, the first-mover advantage of key industries has increased, and it is in the forefront of the country in smart security, smart retail, and smart manufacturing. The "new infrastructure" support capacity represented by the Supercomputing Center puts forward higher requirements.
It is reported that the computing capacity of the "Wuzhen Light" supercomputing center has reached the international first-class level in the same period, filling the gap in Zhejiang Province's large supercomputing center.
The center will provide computing power support for users such as national and provincial key laboratories, scientific research institutions, universities, party and government agencies, and serve scientific and technological innovation, industrial transformation and upgrading, and urban social development.
Wang Qinmin, vice chairman of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, said that the completion of the “Wuzhen Light” supercomputing center directly responded to the major strategic development needs of Zhejiang and even the Yangtze River Delta region, and was the foundation for applications in life sciences, medical health, and air pollution prevention and control. Research and high-performance computing provide computing power support.
"I hope to maximize the role of the supercomputing platform, expand the radiation range and influence of the supercomputing platform, and build it into a magnetic field for gathering talents and talents and a booster for high-quality development, and plugging in the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta Soaring wings." Wang Qinmin said.
Qi Li, secretary of the Tongxiang Municipal Party Committee of the Communist Party of China, also stated that, relying on the “Wuzhen Light” Supercomputing Center, which is worthy of the name “Zhejiang’s Most Powerful Brain”, Tongxiang will work hard to build a “Zhejiang Hashing Power Town”, which will gather supercomputing and artificial intelligence computing. This kind of computing power resources, actively introduce related industries such as chip and server R&D and manufacturing, biomedicine, intelligent driving, etc., to form a rich and diversified intelligent computing industry ecology.
