Training a 20–Billion Parameter AI Model on a Single Processor

Cerebras has shown off the capabilities of its second–generation wafer–scale engine, announcing it has set the record for the largest AI model ever trained on a single device.

For the first time, a natural language processing network with 20 billion parameters, GPT–NeoX 20B, was trained on a single device. Here’s why that matters.

Why The Cerebras CS-2 Machine is a Big Deal

In my first video talking about AI Hardware on this channel, I talk in detail about an exciting Cerebras CS-2 announcement!

Cerebras just built a big chip that could democratize AI

Chip startup Cerebras has developed a foot-wide piece of silicon, compared to average chips measured in millimeters, that makes training AI cheap, and easy.

How healthcare and pharmaceutical research will accelerate through AI

Deep learning has emerged as our generation’s most critical computing job. Tasks that were once the unique realm of humans are now regularly executed at human or superhuman levels by computers.

Accelerating Discovery: Andrew Feldman, Co-Founder and CEO, Cerebras Systems

New hardware can substantially increase the speed and efficiency of deep neural network training. To guide the development of future hardware architectures, it is pertinent to explore the hardware and machine learning properties of alternative training algorithms.

PSC UPGRADES NEOCORTEX AI SUPERCOMPUTER WITH NEW CEREBRAS ENGINES

If you were going to build an electronic brain in 2022, it might look something like the Neocortex supercomputer at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center at Carnegie Mellon University. That machine, which was only installed last year, has now got a brain transplant of sorts with the upgrading of its two AI hemispheres, which are based on the wafer-scale matrix math engines created by Cerebras Systems.

Cerebras – Eye On AI

Andrew Feldman, one of the founders and CEO of Cerebras Systems, talks about the company's wafer-scale computer chip optimized for machine learning and about the network of chips that company has built that has as much computing power as a human brain.
