(ORDO NEWS) — The Meta Platforms research team is building the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC) supercomputer with artificial intelligence. They want to complete its construction in the middle of the year.
Meta has developed a supercomputer with artificial intelligence, which itself positions itself as the fastest in the world. Mark Zuckerberg announced this on his Facebook page .
The computer will allow Meta to create better AI models that can improve their skills with trillions of examples. They will be able to use hundreds of languages, in addition, analyze texts, videos, images, and so on. This will determine whether the content complies with existing rules and regulations.
They want to completely build a new computer in the middle of the year. The work done with the help of RSC will pave the way for the creation of technologies for the so-called metaverse, in which AI-driven applications and products will play an important role.
The term “metaverse” refers to shared virtual environments that the user can access from different devices. This includes both traditional personal computers and augmented or virtual reality headsets. We can say that the “prototypes” of the metaverses already exist. Their role is played by platforms such as VRChat or Decentraland.
The concept of the “metaverse” was first coined by writer Neil Stevenson in the science fiction novel Avalanche. By this word, he meant an extremely vast virtual space.
It transformed into a separate “universe” and became the VR successor to the Internet. Subsequently, the term has found application in a variety of games, films and books.
A few years ago, NVIDIA predicted the formation of gaming metaverses. Each of them will be built around one or another popular story. It can be Warcraft, The Witcher or, for example, Call of Duty. The popularity of such metaverses will be facilitated by remote work, which is gaining more and more popularity these days.
Facebook is not the only one responsible for the metaverse, but the company has invested heavily in the concept at various stages of its development.
Recall that last year Facebook changed its name to Meta. Now Meta Platforms acts as the parent organization for the social networks Facebook and Instagram, the WhatsApp service and Oculus, which produces virtual reality headsets. Meta is among the most valuable companies in the world. As of last year, it had over 68,000 employees.
