Mini Lecture

air pollution particles probed by satellites
Lecturer Professor Sonoyo Mukai

The term "PM2.5" became famous after Beijing's air pollution problem in January 2013.The Earth's atmosphere is made up of not only molecules but also aerosols, which are particles less than 1/10,000th of a millimeter in size.Of these, those with a particle diameter of 2.5 micrometers or less are called PM2.5.The smaller the particle size, the greater the risk that it will be taken into the body through the respiratory and circulatory tracts.Atmospheric particles are difficult to analyze because of the contribution of various factors such as natural origin, anthropogenic origin, and a mixture of the two.I will talk about the satellite-based analysis method that is most suitable for understanding these air pollution particles on a global scale.

Mini Lecture

The history and reach of computer system development
Lecturer Professor, Shinji Tomita

The basic principle of today's computers has not changed in the 76 years since von Neumann's proposal for a "built-in program" in 1945.The first electronic computer, the famous ENIAC, was a "wired program system," which was remarkably unversatile.In this mini-lecture, after describing the innovation of the "built-in program method," I will talk about instruction-level parallel processing (instruction pipeline method (a method that incorporates the principle of flow work), random execution method (a method that allows subsequent instructions to finish execution first), and speculative execution method (a method that allows speculative execution of instructions that may or may not actually be executed) .In addition, the performance improvement limit of instruction level parallel processing is clarified, and the speed-up method by the global parallel processing with multi-core/multi-thread is described. The configuration method of "Fugaku" which adopts this method is introduced, and the future prospects are viewed.
