NOVOVORONEZH, November 20 (Itar-Tass) --Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed to continue development of super computers.
At a meeting of the Presidium of the Presidential Council on modernization of the economy and innovational development on Tuesday Rosatom Chief Sergei Kiriyenko asked the prime minister to issue instructions on the development of super computers."I will be sorry if the project is dropped," Kiriyenko said.
In reply, Medvedev said that he was prepared to give the necessary instructions in part of the federal program which requires correction so as to attract non-budgetary funds and develop super-computer technologies."I have looked into the idea, it seems quite promising,"Medvedev said.
Medvedev said that a few portable super computers had been built already which differ just little from standard computers fit for households. But the production capacity of such computers is much higher and they are faster than ordinary computers and, consequently, they have been used by big companies to prepare complicated projects which need rather sophisticated digitizing, Medvedev said.
"This is a good project which has yielded a result", Medvedev said." Go on the work," the prime minister added.
