Meta, the parent company of Facebook, says that their recently announced AI supercomputer will be the fastest in the world by the middle of next year. Meta is the largest social media corporation in the world. ‘We’re unveiling the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC),’ Meta stated in a statement on Monday. “We believe it is among the world’s fastest AI supercomputers running now and that it will be the world’s fastest once it is fully built out in mid-2022,” Meta added in the statement.
While artificial intelligence can currently perform tasks such as translating text between languages and assisting in detecting potentially dangerous information, the report notes that “building the next generation of AI will necessitate the development of powerful supercomputers capable of performing quintillions of operations per second. “
According to the company, supercomputers capable of processing “quintillions of operations per second” would be required to develop the next generation of artificial intelligence. According to the company, RSC will allow for the creation of new and upgraded artificial intelligence models and the potential to work in hundreds of various language combinations. Smart glasses, virtual reality (VR) headsets, and augmented reality (AR) glasses will be utilized in the future to access the social media network in the metaverse, according to the company.
According to the company’s statement, the work done with RSC will pave the way for building technologies for the next central computer platform — the metaverse — in which artificial intelligence-driven applications and goods will play a crucial role.
As a result, new artificial intelligence systems may be developed to deliver real-time voice translations to large groups of persons in the metaverse who speak different languages, enabling them to collaborate on a research project or play an augmented reality game together.
