RSC, a giant metaverse supercomputer by Meta



Meta, the tech giant previously known as Facebook, revealed Monday that the company built one of the world’s fastest supercomputers. A behemoth called the Research SuperCluster, or RSC. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the system is the fastest for AI activities. In addition with 6,080 graphics processing units packed into 760 Nvidia A100 modules.

The Perlmutter supercomputer, which employs more than 6,000 of the same Nvidia GPUs. Moreover is now the world’s fifth fastest supercomputer, can match that computing power. In a second phase, Meta intends to increase performance by a factor of 2.5 this year by expanding to 16,000 GPUs.



Meta will use RSC for a host of research projects

Meta will use RSC for a number of research projects requiring next-generation performance, including “multimodal” AI. Which draws conclusions from a combination of sound, imagery, and actions rather than just one sort of input data. This could be useful in dealing with the nuances of one of Facebook’s major issues: identifying dangerous content.

Meta, a leading AI researcher, is hoping that the investment will pay off by allowing RSC to assist in the development of the company’s most recent priority. The virtual environment known as the metaverse. RSC could be powerful enough to interpret speech for a big number of people who each speak a different language at the same time.

In a statement, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said; “The experiences we’re designing for the metaverse demand immense compute capacity”. “With RSC, new AI models will be able to learn from billions of samples. Grasp hundreds of languages, and much more.”

According to Meta researchers Kevin Lee and Shubho Sengupta, RSC is around 20 times faster than its prior 2017-era Nvidia machine when it comes to one of the most popular uses of AI: training an AI system to recognize what’s in a photo. It’s nearly three times faster at decoding human speech.

RSC also could help a particularly thorny AI problem that Meta calls self-supervised learning

RSC could also aid with a particularly difficult AI challenge that Meta refers to as self-supervised learning. Most AI models require meticulous tagging. Using stop signs, for example, we can train AI for autonomous vehicles. Moreover the audio is used to train speech recognition AI with transcripts.

Instead, raw, unlabeled data is used in the more difficult process of self-supervised training. So far, humans have the upper hand over computers in this domain.

Meta and other proponents of artificial intelligence have demonstrated that training AI models with greater data sets generates better results. It takes far more computational power to train AI models than it does to run them, which is why iPhones can unlock when they identify your face without having a connection to a data center full of servers.

Supercomputer designers customize their machines by picking the right balance of memory

Designers of supercomputers tailor their machines by balancing memory, GPU performance, CPU performance, power consumption, and internal data paths. The GPU, a type of processor originally developed for accelerated graphics but now utilized for many other computer tasks, is often the star of the show in today’s AI.

The cutting-edge A100 chips from Nvidia are designed for AI and other heavy-duty data center activities. Big firms like Google, as well as a slew of startups, are developing AI processors, some of which are the world’s largest semiconductors.

In combination with Facebook’s own PyTorch AI engine, the A100 GPU foundation is the most productive development environment, according to Facebook.

PandaQ is a new NFT collection



PandaQ refers to a group of 8,888 distinct pandas that are linked to one another by means of the Ethereum blockchain. The assortment will be made available for purchase in the marketplace that can be found on Opensea.

Each Panda is one of a kind due to the fact that it is made up of over two hundred individually crafted parts that, when put together, form a character that is extremely rare and almost never seen. This makes each Panda a one-of-a-kind collectible.

“Joining the Panda community means becoming a part of a fantastic group of people who believe in blockchain technology and a decentralized future,” said one member of the Panda community. “Panda is an open-source blockchain-based digital asset platform.”

Once users have joined the whitelist, they will be eligible for a discount equal to twenty percent off the purchase price and will be able to save money on their monthly gasoline bills

In addition, anyone who participates in the pre-sale will be given the opportunity to purchase one of just ten unique PandaQ NFTs that will be made available. There will be no more than ten of these items available. In addition, anyone who already has two adult Panda NFTs will be eligible to receive a junior Panda NFT at no additional cost if they meet the requirements for this bonus.

At least 80% of the profits made from sales will be contributed to the projects that are still in the planning stages on the Pandaq Launchpad. The ten percent that is left over will be applied toward offsetting some of the costs that are associated with the Launchpad.

The group is comprised of a wide variety of experts in their respective fields, ranging from marketers and technicians to social media and business development specialists and business development specialists. The team’s primary goal is to provide the best possible service to the client. By doing so, they can guarantee that the project will be a resounding and unqualified success.

Mercedes-Benz joins a new metaverse consortium



The Aura blockchain consortium has welcomed Mercedes-Benz as a new member. The German group is the only automaker to join the global blockchain platform for the luxury industry. The platform was formed by industry heavyweights LVMH, Prada, Cartier, part of Richemont, and OTB Group. The German group is the fifth founder member of the network.

Aura Blockchain Consortium is currently comprised of five members, expanding the capabilities of the blockchain platform

The consortium was established in 2017, and it relies on blockchain technology because of the secure digital format it provides. This helps to assure transparency and traceability of products and the sources of those items, which in turn helps to increase customer trust.

With the arrival of the metaverse, the consortium has also intensified its activities in creating its technical roadmap to include a variety of non-fungible token (NFT) solutions. This is consistent with the consortium’s collaborative approach, which is “by luxury brands for luxury brands.”

“Mercedes-Benz comes to us from a sector of the luxury industry that is completely new to us, and we couldn’t be happier to have them as our fifth founding member. This is an actionable step toward our larger aim of welcoming all sub-industries of the luxury industry […] Through the significant opportunities that our solutions offer in relation to our activities related to upstream, downstream, and NFTs, we are confident that the Mercedes-Benz team will make a tremendous contribution to our association and to the development of an innovative and cutting-edge technology. This is something that we are certain of “Daniela Ott, who serves as the Secretary General of the Aura Blockchain Consortium, made this statement.

At a conference, Stefano Rosso, the leader of the BVX (Brave Virtual Xperience) cluster, which was formed by OTB to produce projects and content for the virtual world, also greeted the arrival of the guests.

“Mercedes-Benz is the first automobile manufacturer to sign on with us. They have a high level of technological expertise and will assist us in expanding our horizons within the consortium”, he explained.
