The maker of the world’s largest chip has made a major AI breakthrough

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Cerebras Systems, maker of the world’s largest processor, has broken the record for the most complex AI model trained using a single device.

Using one CS-2 system, powered by the company’s wafer-sized chip (WSE-2), Cerebras is now able to train AI models with up to 20 billion parameters thanks to new optimizations at the software level.

The firm says the breakthrough will resolve one of the most frustrating problems for AI engineers: the need to partition large-scale models across thousands of GPUs. The result is an opportunity to drastically cut the time it takes to develop and train new models.
