Largest single-memory computer

The Machine sounds like something out of an old science fiction movie, like “Colossus: The Forbin Project“.

But The Machine is actually the largest single-memory computer in the world today.  It has 160 TB of data and in the future may scale up to “4,096 yottabytes, or 250,000 times the total store of data in the world today.”

This is a fantastic tool for researchers.  The Machine sounds NEWWorthy.  Let’s just hope the old 1970 movie “Colossus: The Forbin Project” remains fictional, and that The Machine and AI are used for medical, weather, and other non-catastrophic scientific breakthroughs.
