Facebook will bring the world's fastest AI supercomputer

Meta, Facebook’s parent company, may make a significant announcement soon. In fact, the company is developing one of the world’s fastest AI supercomputers. The company anticipates completing the project by the end of the year. The AI Research Supercluster (RSC), according to the company, will be the fastest in the world.

What will be unique about this?

The RSC will be comparable to the Perlmutter supercomputer with 6,080 graphics processing units in the 760 Nvidia A100 module. According to CNET, Nvidia uses over 6,000 of the same GPUs and is currently the world’s fifth fastest supercomputer.

For the next generation of artificial intelligence meta keys, RSC acts as an amplifier. It will learn from a large number of examples, work in hundreds of languages, analyse text, images, and videos at the same time, develop new augmented reality tools, and perform a variety of other advanced tasks that require supercomputer-level processing. “Ultimately, the work done with RSC will pave the way for building the technology for the next major computing platform—Metaverse,” according to the Meta AI blog, “where applications and products that run on AI will play a key role.”

The new computing infrastructure, which has been in development since 2020, will allow users to learn the model more quickly for critical tasks like identifying incorrect content (required for social media channels). From a Natural Language Processing (NLP) and computer standpoint, researchers have begun to use RSCs to train large models.

“This research will not only help keep people safe today, but will also help build the metaverse that we build in the future,” the company claims. Also, as RSC progresses to the next level, we will continue to expand its worlds.” As we begin to lay the groundwork for the metaverse, we’ll work on becoming more powerful.”

This includes AI systems that can power real-time voice translation for large groups of people working on a project or playing AR games together, for example.
