Santiago de Compostela, September 21 (EFE).- Xunta President Alfonso Rueda has put Galicia in a war between territories for accommodationfuture headquarters of the State Agency for Supervision of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

During the inaugurationFinisterrae III of the Galician Supercomputing Center (Cesga) in Santiago de Compostela, in which about seven million euros have been invested, Ruedasure there are “very good arguments” and “more than enough reasons” for Galicia to be a candidate to “take a lot of things into account”.

The second most powerful supercomputer in Spain

Cesga is part of the State Supercomputing Network, which has 14 centers and its new computer is the second most powerful in Spain in terms of storage capacity and computing power with 4.36 petaflops, behind Mare Nostrum in Barcelona.

 With about 800 users including companies, researchers and community centers, Finisterrae III is “very competitive” in Europe, though not as much in the world at large, where it’s not in the top 500, according to Cesga director Lois Orosa.

In fact, he noted, access to this club would require an investment of around 35 million euros – estimated for 2020 – to match the center from Finland.

From fighting cancer to predicting the weather

In his talk, Rueda mentioned some of the areas that researchers using the Galician supercomputer are working on, weather forecasting, cancer research, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, industry, fisheries, and the environment, among many others.

The President of Galicia noted that the director of the center himself recalled in his speech that Finisterrae III users are already demanding more power, more services.

“I mean, we open it and it’s already too small… And that’s not bad news,” Rueda said, stressing that Galicia is “in the leading group” of technology that will continue to develop. grow.

Cooperation with CSIC

The CESGA Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to scientific and technological research. Xunta de Galicia and the Superior Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) participate as sole members of the Board of Trustees.

The opening ceremony was also attended by the Vice President of CSIC and the Deputy Director General for Scientific and Technical Facilities of the Ministry of Science and Innovation, highlighting the cooperation between administrations and the importance of the Galician Center for researchers in the country as a whole. .
