As the tech lead for the TSUBAME supercomputer at Tokyo Tech, Satoshi became Japan’s leading proponent for using accelerator technology to provide cutting-edge computational performance. One of the first to jump on the GPGPU bandwagon, he believes the new graphics chips will usher in the era of commodity vector processing. For 2010 he is designing the GPU-accelerated TSUBAME2, which is on track to be the first multi-petaflop supercomputer in Japan.
