Meta, Facebook parent company, has said that its newly unveiled artificial intelligence supercomputer will be the fastest in the world by mid-2022. In an official statement on January 24, 2022, Meta said that the company is introducing AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), which is believed to be among the fastest AI Supercomputers running today. It will be the fastest in the world once fully built out in mid-2022.  Earlier in October 2021, the social media company had changed its name to Meta to reflect its focus on metaverse, which will be the successor to the mobile internet.

Meta’s AI Research SuperCluster (RSC): Significance

Meta in a blog post stated that its new AI Research SuperCluster (RSC) will help the company in building better AI models that will be able to learn from the trillions of examples, work across hundreds of languages. It will be able to analyze images, texts, and videos together to determine if the content was harmful.

RSC will also help in building the technologies for the next major computing platform- the metaverse, where AI-driven applications and products will play a significant role.

Meta in a statement has said that AI can currently perform the tasks such as translating texts between languages and can help in identifying the potentially harmful content. However, developing the next generation of AI will require powerful supercomputers that are capable of quintillions of operations per second.

What is Metaverse?

Facebook in October 2021 had announced that it is changing the company name to Meta. The change was announced by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the company’s Connect Virtual Reality Conference.

While explaining the change, Zuckerberg had stated that as the company is seen as a social media company, however, in our DNA we are a firm that builds technology to connect people, and the Metaverse is the next frontier just like social networking was when the company was started.

The metaverse refers to the idea of shared virtual environments which people can access through different devices and where they can play, work and socialize.
