Russian Nuclear scientists have been arrested after using a supercomputer to mine

Don't use company/national assets for personal gain (especially in Russia).



Read more about the Russian scientists who have attempted to use a supercomputer to mine cryptocurrencies.

Not sure they would care... they could rake in tons of cash with that amount of computational power.

What do you think our weather men are doing with their super computers as they never get their forecasts right.

Knew it !

When they were talking of a heatwave in January they were talking about their GPU racks not the actual weather !!!

To be fair it takes a massive amount of Computer power to actually predict things like that. They even say our current super computers are barely enough and to predict a 7 day span is challenging. Which is why it updates to something else everyday.

Quantum Computing would really help solve that problem though

They probably couldn't care less about them making money from it, just more concerned it would allow a back door entry into their networks...

Secure it more then. Honestly it's worth it and to be fair there's always a way to hack something.

If they were that worried then seperate their networks

Cyka Blyat! While genius for using a super computer, pure idiots for using one that handles classified information and nuclear information at that.
