Supercomputers to Increase Life Expectancy

SupercomputerProfessor Jean-Christophe Desplat, the director of the Irish Centre for High-End Computing, claims that supercomputers will speed up advances in medical technology, ultimately enabling us to live for a decade longer. More specifically, supercomputers—machines the can process information faster than a general-purpose device—will be able to analyze our genetic code in order to deliver more personalized medicine. These supercomputers, using deep artificial intelligence learning, will also allow doctors to form faster diagnoses and become more accurate over time.
