Fujitsu Ltd. President Masami Yamamoto said Monday the company is developing a new supercomputer to succeed K, the supercomputer it built with state-backed major research institute Riken, now that a U.S. machine has stolen its computing speed crown.

Yamamoto told a shareholders’ meeting in Yokohama he hopes to regain the top slot in the world rankings in a few years, after Japan dropped to second after winning the previous two rankings, according to the announcement by the U.S.-European TOP500 project.
