After six months of celebrations, Indiana University (IU) officially marked its bicentennial on Monday – and it saved the best for last, inaugurating Big Red 200, a new AI-focused supercomputer that joins the ranks of the fastest academic supercomputers in the world. 

IU celebrated its bicentennial on Monday with a special Day of Commemoration that included the dedication of the Big Red 200 supercomputer, the first ringing of the Arthur R. Metz Bicentennial Grand Carillon, an unveiling of new murals in Franklin Hall and Wright Quadrangle, a lecture from Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis and more.

Big Red 200 is eight times faster than its predecessor, Big Red 2, which at seven years old is obsolete. It's 8,000 times faster than IU's first supercomputer, which came online in 2001.
