Nvidia Built Its Selene Supercomputer for Coronavirus Research in Just Three Weeks

Nvidia Corp., an artificial intelligence company co-founded by UF’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering alumnus Chris Malachowsky, managed to build Selene, the world’s seventh-fastest supercomputer, in just under three weeks.

Selene is based on the DGX A100 systems also used by the Argonne National Laboratory to research ways to stop the coronavirus. The Selene supercomputer has been deployed to tackle problems around concepts such as protein docking and quantum chemistry, which are key to developing an understanding of the coronavirus and a potential cure for the COVID-19 disease.
