META CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this week that the tech giant has developed the world’s ‘fastest’ AI supercomputer.
Meta joined the ranks of Microsoft and Nvidia in creating artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputers.
“Meta has developed what we believe is the fastest AI supercomputer in the world,” said Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a statement.
Zuckerberg added: “We call it the RSC for AI Research SuperCluster and it will be completed by the end of the year.
The AI supercomputers created recently by the world’s tech giants are not the traditional supercomputers one might think of.
Instead, this new breed operates at lightning speed and is specifically designed to train machine learning systems.
In Meta’s case, the RSC would be programmed to train a variety of systems across the company’s business practices, including content moderation algorithms (i.e. those used to detect comments). hate speech on Facebook and Instagram) and augmented reality (AR) tools will one day be used in the company’s AR hardware.
“RSC will help Meta AI researchers build new and better AI models that can learn from trillions of examples; work in hundreds of different languages; Meta engineers Kevin Lee and Shubho Sengupta wrote in a blog post.
“We hope RSC will help us build entirely new AI systems that can, for example, provide real-time voice translation for multiple groups of people, each speaking a different language, so they can seamlessly collaborate on a research project or play an AR game. together,” they added.
Furthermore, RSC will also be able to design experiences for the metaverse and potentially Facebook Horizons – a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection.
The company started working on the supercomputer a year and a half ago.
Everything from the machine’s cooling, power, networking and cabling was created entirely from scratch by Meta’s engineering team.
According to Meta researchers, phase one of the supercomputer’s development has been completed and phase two will be implemented before the end of 2022.
