Mark Zuckerberg's Meta has built a giant AI supercomputer that could control the metaverse

META CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this week that the tech giant has developed the world's 'fastest' AI supercomputer.

Meta has joined the ranks of Microsoft and Nvidia in creating artificial intelligence (AI) supercomputers.

“Meta has developed what we believe is the world’s fastest AI supercomputer,” said Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a statement.

“We’re calling it RSC for AI Research SuperCluster and it’ll be complete later this year,” Zuckerberg added.

The AI supercomputers recently created by the world's tech giants are not the traditional supercomputers one may think of.

Instead, this new breed functions at an extremely high speed and is designed specifically to train machine learning systems.

In Meta's case, RSC will be programmed to train an array of systems across the company's businesses, including content moderation algorithms (i.e. those used to detect hate speech on Facebook and Instagram), and augmented reality(AR) tool that will one day be utilized in the company’s AR hardware.

“RSC will help Meta’s AI researchers build new and better AI models that can learn from trillions of examples; work across hundreds of different languages; seamlessly analyze text, images, and video together… and much more,” Meta engineers Kevin Lee and Shubho Sengupta wrote in a blog post.

“We hope RSC will help us build entirely new AI systems that can, for example, power real-time voice translations to large groups of people, each speaking a different language, so they can seamlessly collaborate on a research project or play an AR game together,” they added.

Furthermore, RSC will also be able to design experiences for the metaverse and, likely, Facebook Horizons – a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection.

The company began working on the supercomputer a year and a half ago.

Everything from the machine's cooling, power, networking, and cabling was created entirely from scratch by Meta's engineering team.

Phase one of developing the supercomputer is complete and Phase two should be done before the end of 2022, Meta researchers said.
