Microsoft has appear a new supercomputer built by the aggregation in affiliation with and for OpenAI to train all-embracing AI models. The Seattle-based aggregation said at its Build appointment for developers that this is one of the top five publically appear supercomputers.

Last year, Microsoft invested $1 billion in OpenAI with a goal to build supercomputers that leverages Azure’s cloud services. Now, that advance is assuming its first results.

In terms of specifications, the new supercomputer packs some absorbing numbers. It a single system with more than 285,000 CPU cores, 10,000 GPUs, and 400 gigabits per second of arrangement connectivity for each GPU server.

Both companies said they want to build multitasking all-embracing AI models to make them accessible for developers and the public to use. Microsoft said that the end goal is to make its large AI models, training access tools, and supercomputing assets accessible through Azure AI casework and GitHub for researchers.

Earlier this year, the tech giant apparent a 17-billion constant accustomed accent bearing model. With this supercomputer and its AI at scale program, Mircosoft aims to create more such all-encompassing models and open-source it.

Microsoft’s Chief Technical Officer, Kevin Scott, said this is about training a model that learns to do a accepted set of things and making it accessible for developers:

By now most people allegedly accept how personal computers are a belvedere you buy one and it’s not like aggregate the computer is ever going to do is built into the device when you pull it out of the box.

That’s absolutely what we mean when we say AI is acceptable a platform. This is about taking a very broad set of data and training a model that learns to do a accepted set of things and making that model accessible for millions of developers to go figure out how to do absorbing and artistic things with.

Since its birth in 2015, it has appear some attention-grabbing projects including GPT-2 text generator and gamer bots that defeated champions in DOTA 2. The aggregation hasn’t made it clear what it intends to do with the astronomic abeyant of this new supercomputer.

Microsoft’s supercomputer on cloud aim is not exceptional of. Amazon offers High-Performance Computing (HPC) through Amazon Web Casework (AWS) already. There is no sign that Microsoft is going to make these solutions accessible for developers though.
