Exec: Sberbank creates Russia’s most powerful computer for AI
MOSCOW, Nov 8 (PRIME) -- Top bank Sberbank has designed Russia’s most powerful computer for artificial intelligence (AI) tasks, Executive Vice President David Rafalovsky said on Friday at the AI Journey conference.
“I’m proud to present you Kristofari. It’s the most powerful computer in Russia,” Rafalovsky said, adding that it is the main component of Sberbank’s AI cloud.
The computer was created in cooperation with U.S. company Nvidia and is on the seventh place by power in Europe and on the 29th in the world. It is named after the first client of Sberbank’s ancestor Sberkassa, Nikolai Kristofari.
Resources of the supercomputer will be available to the users of the bank’s cloud service SberCloud.
Sberbank CEO German Gref also said that the country’s market of cloud technologies is hugely underdeveloped and only 4% of firms use such solutions.
