Katsuki Fujisawa has been a Full Professor at the Institute of Mathematics for Industry (IMI) of Kyushu University, Japan. He has also been a joint appointed fellow of Artificial Intelligence Research Center (AIRC), AIST, Japan. He received his Ph. D. from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1998.
The major objective of our project is to develop an advanced computing and optimization infrastructure for extremely large-scale graphs on exa-scale supercomputers.
His project team has challenged the Graph500 benchmark, which is designed to measure the performance of a computer system for applications that require irregular memory and network access patterns. In 2014 to 2020, his project team was a winner at the eighth, 10th to 18th, and 20th Graph500 benchmark. In 2017, He received the Prize for Science and Technology (Research Category), Commendation for Science and Technology by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan.
