For the first time in Lebanon, researchers, engineers and university students will be able to benefit from a high-performance computing facility HPC4L known as “Super Computer”, which recently arrived in Beirut as a gift from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland, and donors and supporters.
According to what university professors revealed to “Sky News Arabia”, the “Super Computer” project is one of the largest facilities for high-performance computing in the Middle East, and aims to enhance research and development and provide the means for Lebanese universities and institutes to take full advantage of the 3,452 computing cores that are now at their disposal. .
The project will also allow the preparation of doctoral programs in Lebanon, and will enhance opportunities for scientific and technological breakthroughs, in addition to bridging the gap between Lebanon and other developed countries in research fields.
Ogero, the executive arm of the Ministry of Communications in Lebanon, hosted the data center for the project, at its headquarters in Beirut.
Regarding the importance of the project, Imad Kreidieh, Director General of Ogero, said in an interview with Sky News Arabia, that this project is “a pivotal one for universities and education as a whole, because it gives the Lebanese an opportunity to develop their research in the fields of mathematics, physics, biology and information, to get them to a place where they can be found.” It can produce from educational institutions people who will be future makers in their fields.”
Martin Gastal, a consultant for the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland for the Middle East and North Africa, told Sky News Arabia, “The HPC4L project provides ways for researchers in Lebanon to locally carry out the necessary simulation and analysis of their research, which helps scientific talents to stay in the country, It puts Lebanon on the map like many other countries when it comes to computer hubs that support data analysis.”
Gastal pointed out that the European Organization for Nuclear Research, due to the many problems faced by the Lebanese economy, has set up donation campaigns to deliver this program abroad and to secure support for shipping the facility to Lebanon, revealing that Lebanese experts have been trained to use this facility.
For his part, the Executive Director of Innovation and Transformation at the American University of Beirut, Dr. Youssef Asfour, commented on the importance of the project, saying that the “super computer” would help those in charge of conducting research in physics and health, and would encourage collective cooperation between researchers, students, universities and research centers, in addition to facilitating cooperation. With researchers all over the world.
