News of Belarus. An office supercomputer, “smart parking” and “Internet of things” – these and other innovations will be presented at specialized exhibition “TIBO”. It will be opened in Minsk on April 18.
Dozens of local and foreign companies will present cutting-edge developments in the area of high technology and connections. About trends of the season before the forum – in the programme News “24 hours” on CTV.
An application will convert any city of Belarus into an open-air museum and will give its user a tour directly while walking: a true guide in a mobile telephone. Young scientists-programmers have what to show at Tibo.
Aliena Kryvaĺcevič, the creator of the mobile application:
Google Maps is embedded in the mobile programme and one can see where one or another object is situated. But in future it is planned that GPS-coordinates are found automatically and the audio guide switches on according to a showplace which is near by it.
And a next showpiece won’t fit into a pocket. An office supercomputer (so the Belarusian development was named) will be carried to Tibo by a special automobile, as its weight is 30 kilos after all. This smart machine is a highlight of the exhibition and a finding for geologists.

Such system unit in which there are 10 computational nodes each of which if say in consumer words presents a server. The supercomputer allows to cipher at a speed of 10 trillion operations in a second.
A whole stand will be dedicated to the electronic government – a project which already has a beginning. Everyone can learn about a biometric passport, an ID-card and state services online.
