To create a bright future we need to solve many global problems. For this, not only must we rely on the industrial innovation we have developed over the years, we also need to gather ideas from all over the world and find the best way to solve global problems quickly and efficiently.

Research must be carried out to scientifically evaluate the causes of these problems and reproduce them on the computer in order to find solutions. This activity, the science of forecasting, is not possible without simulations using a supercomputer.

Riken AICS' top-class supercomputer will be used to resolve challenging issues and achieve scientific and technological breakthroughs which will help strengthen the industrial base. Riken AICS will make a contribution by helping to solve problems common to humanity. The K computer will play an important role in creating our future.
