Prof. Dr. Yutaka IshikawaProfessor, University of Tokyo & Leader of System Software Research Team, RIKEN AICS
Yutaka Ishikawa is a professor of the University of Tokyo, director of Information Technology Center at the University of Tokyo, and the leader of System Software Team at Riken AICS(Advanced Institute for Computational Science).
Ishikawa received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Keio University. From 1987 to 2001, he was a member of AIST (former Electrotechnical Laboratory), METI. From 1993 to 2001, he was the chief of Parallel and Distributed System Software Laboratory at Real World Computing Partnership.
Were he led development of cluster system software called SCore, which was used in several large PC cluster systems around 2004.
From 2006 to 2008, he led the project to design a commodity-based supercomputer called T2K open supercomputer. As a result, three universities, Tsukuba, Tokyo, and Kyoto, obtained each supercomputer based on the specification.
His group is now designing the post T2K open supercomputer based on manycore architectures.
