The Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award is presented to individuals who have innovatively contributed to the development of high-performance computing systems.
Miura received the Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award "for leadership in developing groundbreaking vector supercomputing hardware and software."
The Seymour Cray Computer Engineering Award was established in honor of Seymour Cray, a pioneer in supercomputer development.
never completed its last project, the Cray-4, because it filed for bankruptcy in 1995.
The teraflops boundary is no different than advances that created electronic calculators (kiloflops), Cray computers
(megaflops), and last-generation vector supercomputers (Gflops).
Not surprisingly, Cray Computer
's Neil Davenport takes exception to the report's emphasis on massively parallel systems and calls the technology's predicted rate of acceptance highly optimistic considering the slow rate at which general-purpose software is progressing for these machines.
It took a supercomputer--a Cray computer

Seymour Cray, founder of Control Data Corporation, Cray Research, Inc., and Cray Computer
Corporation, is the 1989 recipient of the Eckert-Mauchly Award.
For a system of hundreds of particles this could take an hour's time on the Cray Computer
