LLNL, ANL and GSK provide early glimpse into Cerebras AI system performance


AI chip and systems startup Cerebras was one of many AI companies showcased at the AI Hardware Summit which concluded last week. Cerebras invited collaborators from LLNL, Argonne National Laboratory, and GlaxoSmithKline to talk about their early work on Cerebras machines and future plans. Livermore Computing's CTO Bronis de Supinski said, “We have this vision for performing cognitive simulation using what we call a heterogeneous system architecture. Most supercomputers have the same node over and over. That is what the Lassen’s base architecture was. By adding the CS-1, we now have a volume that is specifically tuned and intended for running machine learning models.” Read more at HPCwire.
