Meet: Meta's innovative supercomputer (meta)
Meta (formerly Facebook) today (Monday) unveiled the supercomputer - the largest, fastest and most advanced computer in the world it has built - the SuperClust (RSC) that can run unprecedented calculations, process trillions of parameters in a matter of seconds, and train models of artificial intelligence on an unprecedented scale Looks like the industry.
The computer (imagine a huge structure that is entirely a processor), whose construction began in 2020 and will be completed during the year, will be able to run quintillion (18 zeros) tasks, train artificial intelligence in unprecedented amounts of data, and form the basis for computer vision, natural language processing and speech recognition. Uses - for example, simultaneous real-time translation of large groups of people in hundreds of different languages or the development of the next generation of AR experiences - will lead to technological breakthroughs in many fields, from scientific research to gaming.

Paves the way for building technologies for the Meteors
According to the company, the Metavers vision will be based on advanced systems of artificial intelligence, which the entire industry will need to develop from the ground up.
The SuperCluster is the first project of its kind in the world, which has not been tested in the industry so far due to its technological complexity, and work on it began a year and a half ago by teams working remotely due to the Corona epidemic.
Upon completion of its construction during the year, the supercomputer will allow the company's AI researchers to build improved and more accurate models that know how to process information from trillions of examples, operate in hundreds of languages, analyze text, video and images at once, develop new augmented reality (AR) tools and more.

Thus, it will allow the meta to develop not only sophisticated models of artificial intelligence for existing services, but also to build entirely new user experiences for the Matevers.
Meta's artificial intelligence teams have already begun training huge models for supercomputer research needs, and they continue to invest in developing the field of self-supervised learning in an effort to advance the entire artificial intelligence industry.
