The Permutter supercomputer at the US National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) will deliver approximately four exaflops of AI performance, according to GPU supplier Nvidia, making it the world's fastest on this measure.
Australian technology company GreyScan is partnering with the University of Tasmania to develop a mobile trace detection tool to "rapidly and accurately detect" coronavirus and other surface viruses in the environment.
Chinese tech giant Alibaba Group has unveiled its first AI inference chip developed by T-Head under the Alibaba DAMO Academy, an initiative it says will accelerate the speed of machine learning tasks – and lead technology development and scientific research.
Australia’s Academic and Research Network AARNet has appointed 20-year scientific research and ICT veteran Dr Carina Kemp as the new director, eResearch.
The CSIRO says it has secured access to one of the world's most sophisticated high-performance satellites, giving Australian scientists direct control over which data the satellite collects over the region, and putting the national science agency at the forefront of Australia's civilian space science sector.
A group of international researchers, including a leading research from the University of Sydney, has made a breakthrough discovery, making a conducting carbon material that they demonstrated could be used to perform quantum computing at room temperature, rather than near absolute zero (-273°C).
Collaborative research by the CSIRO, Victoria’s RMIT University and the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has paved the way for next-generation batteries with a longer-life and boosted performance.
Data generated on Australia’s most powerful supercomputer, Raijin, has allowed scientific researchers to produce detailed animations of the movement of the densest and coldest water in the world, Antarctica.
Scientists at the Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC) in Denmark have used advanced genetic algorithims processed on a SGI supercomputer to discover how genetic diseases such as cancer systematically attack the networks controlling human cells.
Storage vendor Seagate Technology has partnered with the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, CERN openlab, to collaborate on the development of its ‘’breakthrough” Kinetic Open Storage platform.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a former research scientist in her own right, is to visit the NICTA research centre of excellence while in Australia for the G20 summit.
Australian organisations have been warned they may be placed at risk of litigation through compliance breaches due to the increasing cost of collecting and analysing business data, and that the problem could negatively impact their competitive potential in the wider market.
University of Sydney scientists say they have developed a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) that can not only increase Internet networks speeds making them 60 times faster but can act as traffic monitors to keep the speed high and error-free.

No, you do not. I have not linked to any source. Some random quote is irrelevant to this story.
Why wasn't it sent to us? It was sent to some small outlets that are definitely not mainstream. How can[…]
