Akira Oyama Biography: Akira Oyama is associate professor at Institute of Space and Astronautical Science, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and University of Tokyo in Japan. He received his Ph.D. in aerospace engineering at Tohoku University in Japan in 2000. After that he worked for NASA Glenn research center in the U.S. from 2000 to 2003. His research interests include aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, multiobjective design optimization in space engineering. He is the leader of “design innovation with multiobjective design exploration”, one of the R&D topics of Japanese national supercomputer project “HPCI Strategic Programs for Innovative Research Field 4: Design Innovation” since 2010. He has published 265 conference papers and 33 refereed journal articles.

Title: Evolutionary Computation on Supercomputer K

Abstract:In Japan, supercomputer K is in use from 2000, which consists of 82944 CPUs (each CPU has 8 cores) and has peak performance of 10.62 Peta Flops. “Design innovation with multiobjective design exploration”, one of the R&D topics of Japanese national supercomputer project “HPCI Strategic Programs for Innovative Research Field 4: Design Innovation,” aims to show possibility of multiobjective design exploration on supercomputer K for design innovation. Supercomputer enables (1) evolutionary computation with extremely expensive objective/constraint functions and (2) evolutionary computation with extremely large population to capture Pareto-front of many-objective optimization problem. This presentation overviews this project and shows some of its outcomes.
