Santiago de Compostela, Sep 21 (EFE).- The president of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, has placed Galicia in the interterritorial war to host thefuture headquarters of the National Agency for the Surveillance of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

During the inaugurationFinisterrae III, the Galician Supercomputing Center (Cesga), in Santiago de Compostela, which benefited from public investment of nearly seven million euros, Rueda has assure that there are “very solid arguments” and “more than enough reasons” for Galicia to be a candidate to be taken “completely into account”.

Second most powerful supercomputer in Spain

The Cesga is part of the State Supercomputing Network, which has 14 centers, and its new computer is the second most powerful in Spain in terms of storage capacity and computing power, with 4.36 petaFlops, after the Mare Nostrum, of Barcelona.

 According to Cesga director Lois Orosa, Finisterrae III, which has around 800 users including companies, researchers and public centers, is “very competitive” in Europe, but not so much in the world as a whole, where it does not is not among the top 500.

In fact, he pointed out, to gain access to this club, an investment of around 35 million euros would be necessary – according to 2020 calculations – to match a Finnish center.

From the fight against cancer to weather forecasting

In his speech, Rueda recalled some of the areas in which researchers using the Galician supercomputer work, weather forecasting, cancer research, biotechnology, pharmacy, industry, fisheries and the environment, among others.

The Galician president pointed out that the director of the center himself recalled in his speech that the users of Finisterrae III are already asking for more capacity, more services.

“That is to say, we are inaugurating it and it is already too small… And that is not bad news,” said Rueda, who pointed out that Galicia is “in the group of head” of a technology that will continue to grow.

Collaboration with the CSIC

The CESGA Foundation is a non-profit association serving scientific and technological research. The Xunta de Galicia and the Superior Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) participate as the only members of the Board of Directors.

The Vice President of CSIC and the Deputy Director General of Scientific and Technical Facilities of the Ministry of Science and Innovation also participated in the opening ceremony, highlighting the collaboration between the administrations and the importance of the Galician center for researchers across the country. .
