It’s shiny, fast and ultrapowerful. But it’s not the latest Alpha Romeo. A physics laboratory in Tennessee just unveiled Summit, likely to be named the world’s speediest and smartest supercomputer.
Perhaps most exciting for the U.S.? It’s faster than China’s.
The supercomputer — which fills a server room the size of two tennis courts — can spit out answers to 200 quadrillion (or 200 with 15 zeros) calculations per second, or 200 petaflops, according to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where the supercomputer resides.
“If every person on Earth completed one calculation per second, it would take the world population 305 days to do what Summit can do in 1 second,” according to an ORNL statement.
Put another way, if one person were to run the calculations, hypothetically, it would take 2.3 trillion days, or 6.35 billion years. [9 Super-Cool Uses for Supercomputers]
The former “world’s fastest supercomputer,” called Sunway TaihuLight, can perform 93,000 calculations a second (93 petaflops), while humming away inside China’s National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi.
So, how did Summit become such a giant?
The supercomputer is an IBM AC922 system that’s made up of 4,608 computer servers — each comprising processors (the brains of the computer). But what’s actually going on inside these processors is what makes the difference.
“Summit’s computer architecture is quite different from what we have had before,” Daniel Jacobson, a computational biologist at ORNL, who is working on Summit, told Live Science. For one thing, the computer uses the new Tensor Core feature in its graphics cards (made by Nvidia), which is designed specifically for applications focusing on machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), and to be fast.
Basically, unlike older computer chips, these chips are optimized for a special type of mathematical operation on matrices — or rectangles filled with numbers with rules for adding, subtracting and multiplying the different rows and columns. Computers equipped with AI programs often learn using so-called neural networks, which have several layers in which lower calculations feed into higher ones. And this process requires the heavy use of matrices.
“This is a brand-new feature that has allowed us to break the exascale barrier,” Jacobson said, referring to a processing speed that’s over a billion billion calculations per second.
In addition, Summit has loads of superfast memory (RAM) available on each of its nodes, where localized calculations can take place.
“Each node on Summit has 512 Gb [gigabytes] of RAM and the network that communicates between nodes uses adaptive routing, and is thus incredibly fast, which helps us scale the calculation across all the nodes very efficiently,” Jacobson said. So-called adaptive routing means Summit has some flexibility in how it runs calculations — sort of like networks of brain cells connected to synapses.
And though pricey — a New York Times report puts the cost at $200 million — Summit could deliver big for science: The supercomputer is built to integrate artificial intelligence into its computing, which could make Summit a formidable foe in the battle for answers to some of the world’s most complex mysteries.
“There are many, many scientific uses of this sort of supercomputing capacity,” he said. “Whether this is for new discoveries for bioenergy or new discoveries for precision medicine, many things are now possible that simply weren’t before.”
For instance, just as artificial intelligence programs are being co-opted to learn to pick out cats from images, said Jack Wells, the director of science at ORNL, these AI programs running on Summit could learn to pick out and categorize all kinds of data, ranging from those in biological sciences to physics, such as detections of neutrinos and other particles.

Human rights activist and renowned lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) has dared the Muslims Rights Concern, MURIC, to sue his rapper son, Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz, if they are aggrieved by his trending ‘This is Nigeria’ video.
Recall that the group during the week released a statement, ordering Falz to take down “This is Nigeria” video which, according to them, ridicules their religion because some girls were seen in the footage wearing hijab and dancing Shaku Shaku.
They also threatened to take a legal action against the rapper after the expiration of the ultimatum given to him.
But reacting to the threat, the renowned lawyer told Vanguard that in as much as freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed in the country, nobody has the right to threaten another person.
According to him, the video in question contains a lot of messages and desired to be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of this country at heart.
Speaking further, Falana said he has confirmed that his son, who’s also a lawyer by profession is handling the threat within the ambit of the law.
“My son is a lawyer and I have confirmed that he’s handling the threat within the ambit of the law. The video in question contains a lot of messages and it should be encouraged by anybody who has the interest of our country at heart.
“Since the group has threatened to sue him or threatening to sue him. My son has promised that he would meet them in court. I support that decision.
“We all belong to this country, nobody can threaten another person. Freedom of speech is constitutionally guaranteed.
“If you are aggrieved as a result of any publication or record, the appropriate thing for you to do is to go to court. I’d hope that they will go to court at the expiration of the ultimatum given to my son,” said the renowned lawyer.
University Of Lagos (UNILAG) To Establish Refineries.
The University of Lagos, UNILAG, have announced it would soon set up conventional and standard locally-built refineries to boost the nation’s refinery capacity.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, made this known at the 1st Annual General Meeting, AGM, and 2nd Alumni Lecture of the UNILAG Faculty of Engineering Alumni Association.
According to Ogundipe, the students of the school needed to be exposed to refining process as an institution that produced graduates in Chemical Engineering.
According to him, “Committee has been set up to under-study the process from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
“If you go to some of the universities in Texas, when their students graduate, because they have refineries in their universities they do not need to do certain courses when it comes to professional courses. Engineering has left that level of just setting down and starts computing.
“It is now about turning ideas to realities. It is about producing entrepreneurial skills and developing the skills in the life our students.
“We need to develop our students, all of them have skills that are unique to them, and the skills can help them set up their own businesses in future.
“Most of our students can develop application while some are with different skills. As a Vice Chancellor, faculty by faculty I am going to interact with students to encourage them, to develop their skills and we have already gotten the commitment of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and Bank of Industry, BOI for funds.”
A mystery snake is said to have sneaked into the accounts office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in Makurdi, the Benue State capital and made away with N36 million cash.
Before now, JAMB candidates purchased scratch cards from JAMB state offices and other designated centers, to gain access to the Board’s website for either registration or to check their admission status but the reforms introduced by JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, recommended an end to the use of scratch cards.
A team of auditors was dispatched to different state offices of JAMB to take inventory of the sold and unsold scratch cards and recover whatever money that might have either been generated or mismanaged during the period of the sale of scratch cards.
On their visit to Makurdi office of JAMB, a sales clerk, Philomina Chieshe, told JAMB registrar and his team that she could not account for N36 million she made in previous years before the abolition of scratch cards.
In the course of interrogation, Philomena confessed that it was her housemaid that connived with another JAMB staff, Joan Asen, to “spiritually” steal the money from the vault in the accounts office.
She said: “I was one of the four sales clerks attached to JAMB office in Makurdi. My responsibility was to sell scratch cards to candidates and not involved in handling the revenues. It was the responsibility of Joan Asen and my other senior colleagues. I only remit money when am done selling the cards.
“Few months ago, there was issue of fraud in the Makurdi office. Auditors were sent from Abuja to carefully flip the record books of the office, to perhaps, ascertain the current state of affairs.
“The state Coordinator, Obilo, was not around when the audit team came. But in the course of the audit, N36 million was discovered to have been missing from the account. An investigation was launched. In the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Joan Asen, who is account staff and a lady outside JAMB have connived to steal the money.”
Philomina in her confessional statement said that Joan Asen and her accomplices confessed that they have been stealing the money “spiritually” through a mysterious snake that always sneak into the office to swallow the money from the vault.
According to her “It was a mystery to me too. I have been saving the money in the bank, but I found it difficult to account for it. So I started saving it in a vault in the office. But each time I open the vault, I will find nothing. I became worried and surprised how the millions of Naira could be disappearing from the vault. I began to interrogate everybody in the house and office, and no one could agree on what might have happened to the money. I continued to press until my housemaid confessed. She said that the money disappeared “spiritually”. She said that a “mysterious snake” sneaked into the house and swallowed the money in the vault.”
Lagos – A 42-year-old housewife, Fatimot Abiola, on Wednesday in Lagos lost her 22 -year-old marriage to her husband, Rasheed, for wearing trousers against her husband’s wish.
Delivering the judgment, the President of Igando Customary Court, Lagos, Mr Akin Akinniyi said that it appeared that the estranged couple was tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile both parties had failed.
Petition for marriage divorce
“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court pronounced the marriage between Mr Rasheed Abiola and Mrs Fatimot dissolved, both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrance and molestation,” Akinniyi ruled.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Abiola had earlier told the court that his wife wears trousers which he had warned her severally to desist but she refused.
“My mother and I had warned Fatimot severally to stop wearing trouser but she will not listen, I can no longer cope with her way of life and her deviant attitude,” he said.
The 47-year-old custom officer said that his wife was threatening him from marrying another wife.
“Fatimot is threatening to harm me if I make any attempt to marry another woman.
“But Fatimot and I have not been sleeping together as husband and wife for years,” he said.
“She once left the house and never return until after a year,” the estranged husband said.
According to him, he is experiencing depression because he does not have peace of mind.
He begged the court to dissolve the union that he did not love her again, he wants to move on with his life.
However, Fatimot said that her husband kicked against her wearing trouser claiming she wanted to be trading in prostitution.
She said that she never threatened him not to marry another wife.
The mother of three children urged the court to grant her husband’s wish. (NAN)
A former lecturer at the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture, Kwara State University, Malete, Dr. Solomon Osunlola, committed suicide yesterday Friday, November 17th.
According to reports, the registrar of KWASU had written to inform him of his conversion to a contract staff from a full-time appointment. This reportedly got the deceased so depressed that some of his friends had to seek spiritual help because it became a serious case.
The deceased had lost his wife three months ago. One of his friends had offered to assist him with a job at Landmark University but Osunlola declined and refused to submit his credentials.
Yesterday, his family members had to force his room door open after he did not step out in the morning. Sadly, they discovered that he had committed suicide.
Confirming his death, the director, Public Relations, KWASU, Dr. Isiaka Aliagan, said
“The Management of KWASU, Malete, would like to clarify that the late Dr. Oluremi Solomon Osunlola, was a Lecturer 1 in the Department of Crop Production, College of Agriculture. He joined the services of the Institution on a full-time appointment in 2010. However, during staff verification, it was discovered that the late Osunlola had already retired from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Kwara Office, before taking up a full-time appointment with KWASU.
Despite the fact that the deceased violated the rule of his engagement, the university, in August, 2017, converted his appointment to contract on compassionate grounds. This is all we can say about the late Osunlola.”
His remains have been deposited at the morgue.
You would be wondering what other satisfaction will a married man with 7 children want from an infant, as minor as a three year old. Well, just not too long ago, a father of seven, Abdullahi Sani, was on Thursday docked at a Senior Magistrate court in Kastina for allegedly raping a three year old girl to death.
The 50-year-old resident of Jabiri Quarters, Fantua, was alleged to have committed the offence on October 12.
Sani is now facing rape and culpable homicide charges, which the Police said are in accordance with Section 283 and 221 of Penal Code Law.
While reading the First information Report (FIR), the police persecutor, Inspector Sani Ado stated that, Sani had called the victim who was of the same address, took her to an uncompleted building, covered her mouth and raped her.
“In the process, she died instantly”, he said.
The Police prosecutor however said investigation on the case was ongoing and requested that the case be adjourned to another date.
Abdulkadiri Umar, the Senior Magistrate directed that Sani be remanded in prison custody till December 18, when the case is to come up for mention before Senior Magistrate Falile Dikko.

It’s not so much of a new news, hearing Lecturers having affairs with students, most especially as a consideration for academic marks/privileges. Same was the story in Cross river State were a married lecturer was arrested yesterday for inviting a female student he was assigned to supervise her final year project to a hidden hotel in barracks road, Igoli Ogoja, Cross River state.
In a video gone viral on social media, the lecturer was caught asking the student, “Have I done any wrong? Then he turned to explained to the officers that he was set for his promotion interview before the female student called him.
The officers then ordered him to their vehicle.
From the video, the man was seen begging to be allowed to go for his promotional interview which he missed due to the arrest.
The lecturer is alleged to be working at the College of Health Technology, Iboko, Yala LGA of Cross River State.
He’s also the HOD of the Laboratory Services Department of General Hospital Ogoja Cross River State.

I have been trying to research about the person that introduced the night class tradition, buh the research has been futile.
Well the person has really helped lot’s of people as well as frustrated others. Ever since its inception, people have adultrated it to fit their lifestyle, from making friends to stealing and so on.
So today, I’ll be sharing with you, 10 types of people to expect when you go for night class.
1. The thieves;
Yes, Istarted with these people, because you really need to look out for them, they really didn’t come to read, they are there just to move things.
They seize opportunities like interuption of power supply or negligence (maybe a reader falls asleep) to perform wonders. Beware of them.
2. The destiny changers:
Funny as it may sound, they exist, and these set have more of the girls, their job is to confuse you that jejely came to read, they don’t only spray perf or make up, but they go to the extent of opening their cleavages and wearing short skirts that the cool guy beside them will sit confused for the rest of the night.
Please if you come across these people, i advise you change seats. And to those in this category, receive sense.
3. The fashionistas ;
They really didn’t come to confuse you, their main aim is just to show off their wardrobe.
I magine a guy wearing shades, fez cap, vintage clothings and chains or a girl wearing a fresh make up or Christmas cloths to night class??
4. The posers/fakers:
I like these people, they are the best.
Imagine someone coming to night class with about two big textbooks, 5 photocopied materials, and 8 notebooks, haba! For one night?
And the funny thing about them is that, 20min into reading, they’ll tap you and say bro please wake me up in 1hr time, don’t just bother waking them up ‘cos when you do, they will continue postponing it to the nexy hour.
I pity them cos when they get to the hostel in the morning, their roomies start shouting JACKOOOO! not knowing they slept through out.
5. The confused;
This amazing set of people will be reading one page of a material for more than 2hrs, then go to the next page and return to the previous page, and you’ll always see them murmuring..
I still think its either they just broke up, are hungry or have village problems.
6. The teachers/scholars:
There are mostly boys in this category, you’ll see them come with someone to teach (mostly the opposite sex) and be teaching what they dont even know, with hopes of making the baes fall for them (some are genuine tho).
Have you noticed that the people they teach end up scoring higher than them?
7. The socializers :
The guys also come first in this set of people, all they came to do in night class is to make friends and catch up with other friends, they know virtually everyone in agric and basement, you see them hailing anyone that just enters LT1, jacko, baddo, baby and so on.
They only come with jotters, to collect numbers.
8. The preachers;
Oh you thought i would forget them? They are supposed to top the list sef, everyone knows their official statement,
“Please spare me five minutes of your time“
Research has it that the least time they spend is 30mins. And the painful part it that up to five of them come up in one night, do the maths.
9. The serious ones :
Now these are the set of people night class was really meant for, they come, greet some friends, read and if need be go out and buy something and continue reading..
P.s, I’m in this category ooo.
10. The nocturnal lovers:
This list won’t the complete without these people. They are the romeo and Juliets, they just come to night class to hook up and cuddle up.
All they do is meet at hall2 car park, goto agric, discuss for a while then to orchard or law (to cuddle) and then to june 12 to flex.. The funny thing is most of them haven’t ever met during the day.

A professor in Tennessee has a solution for a student who missed class after she couldn’t find someone to babysit her 3-year-old girl: Just bring the child to class.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Professor Sally Hunter at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville emailed Morgan King that she would be “absolutely delighted” to hold King’s daughter, Korbin, while teaching class.
“I’m very serious with this offer— just bring Korbyn with you!” the professor wrote, excusing the student for missing a class.
King later posted on Twitter that she cried with gratitude. And her professor’s email wound up being shared widely on social media, even by Chancellor Beverly Davenport.
Wrote Davenport: “Morgan, thanks for showing us challenges college students face. Prof Hunter, thanks for being part of the solution.”
Federal University of Technology (FUT) Minna, has donated 148 titles with 458 volumes of books to the University of Jos which library was gutted by fire late last year.
Vice Chancellor of FUT, Prof Musbau Akanji, said the books were donated because the colossal loss of books and equipment in UniJos was a national calamity.
“A library is a centre of civilisation of all cultures because it is a custodian of knowledge. When a library is burnt, it is like a culture is destroyed. It is not easy to re-build a lost library,” the VC noted.
Responding, the Vice Chancellor of UniJos, Prof. Seddi Sebastian Maimako, applauded FUT Minna for coming to the aid of the institution, adding that the university was encouraged by the kind gesture.
Prof. Maimako, who was represented by the University Librarian, Dr. Stephen Akintunde, assured FUT Minna that the books would be properly channeled and classified for the use of the students.
Prof. Maimako further revealed that the university library was host to six faculties, stating that the institution lost over 60 per cent of its books and equipment to the fire.
He disclosed that the Federal Government, through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), approved N729 million for the renovation of the library and that construction work would soon commence after the bidding process.
