IBM has announced that it has teamed up with the White House to form the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium. The working group, which also includes Amazon and Microsoft, was created to bring together an “unprecedented” amount of computing power to help researchers better understand COVID-19, treatments, and cures.  Through the consortium, researchers will have access to 16 systems with more than 330 petaflops, 775,000 CPU cores, and 34,000 GPUs — and growing. The consortium is already accepting and evaluating proposals from researchers and will provide supercomputing access to those efforts that make a difference immediately. Learn More
