Meta leaps into the supercomputer game with its AI Research SuperCluster


There’s a global competition to build the biggest, most powerful computers on the planet, and Meta (AKA Facebook) is about to jump into the melee with the “AI Research SuperCluster,” or RSC. Once fully operational it may well sit in the top ten fastest supercomputers in the world, which it will use for the massive number crunching needed for language and computer vision modeling.
Large AI models, of which OpenAI’s GPT-3 is probably the best known, don’t get put together on laptops and desktops; they’re the final product of weeks and months of sustained calculations by high performance computing systems that dwarf even the most cutting-edge gaming rig. And the faster you can co …
