Facebook’s Fastest Supercomputer Ready for Metavers

Technology company Meta, formerly known as Facebook, revealed on January 24 that it has developed one of the world’s fastest supercomputers, dubbed the Research Super Cluster or RCS.

Equipped with 6080 graphics processing units, this computer has 760 Nvidia A100 modules.

According to Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive of Meta, this is the fastest machine for tasks based on artificial intelligence.

Its processing power is the same as that of the world’s 5 fastest supercomputer polymotor supercomputer.

In the second phase, during 2022, Meta will add 16,000 GPUs to the machine to further improve its performance.

RCS will be used by Meta for a variety of research projects that will require excellent performance, such as multimodal AI, a combination of sound, imagery and action.

The company hopes that in this way it will be able to overcome one of the biggest problems of Facebook, the harmful content.

Meta also expects to be able to use the RCS to build the company’s new priority Metavers virtual world.

RCS is such a powerful computer that it can simultaneously translate a large number of words of people speaking different languages.

According to Mark Zuckerberg, we need a lot of computing power to build Metavers, RCS will enable new AI models that can learn trillions of examples, understand hundreds of languages ​​and much more.

According to a blog post on Meta

“We hope RSC will help us build entirely new AI systems that can, for example, provide real-time voice translations to large groups of people, each speaking a different language, so they can collaborate in a meaningful way. transparency about a research project or playing an augmented reality game together

The AI ​​system that trains this computer for image recognition is 20 times faster than the world’s 5th supercomputer and 3 times faster for translating human speech.
