If we talk about the world's fastest supercomputer then then there are two countries are on the top five list. China owns the top two spots, with the U.S. holding the third, fourth, and fifth places on the list. Now, The international supercomputer race may soon have a new contender: Japan is reportedly eyeing the world's fastest-ever machine.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will spend 19.5 billion yen ($173 million) on the previously unreported project, a budget breakdown shows, as part of a government policy to get back Japan’s mojo in the world of technology. The country's engineers will be tasked with building the machine as early as next year, sources told Reuters.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wants companies and politicians to work more closely so Japan can win in areas such as artificial intelligence. 'As far as we know, there is nothing out there that is as fast,' said Satoshi Sekiguchi, from Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, where the computer will be built.

Applications include helping companies improve driverless vehicles by allowing them to analyze huge troves of visual traffic data, or it could help factories improve automation.
