Codeplay wins key US contract for AI software
Charles Macfarlane: pioneering technology
Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technology company Codeplay has won a second key contract with the US Government.
The Edinburgh-based business, already a world-leader in the AI technology used in devices such as self-driving vehicles and drones, has been selected by the US Department of Energy’s (DoE) National Labs to supply its software to a second supercomputer called Frontier, one of the highest performance computers in the world.
Frontier will be used by researchers working in diverse areas such as medicine, alternative energy, environment, high-energy and nuclear physics, advanced computing, materials science and chemistry.
On the back of this success, and strong demand from some of the largest tech companies in the world, Codeplay is expecting to add 20 software developers and computer scientists to its current payroll of 80 over the next year.
