Despite ongoing controversies over privacy and misinformation, on Tuesday Facebook’s parent company Meta stated that it was unveiling the launch of one of the world’s strongest supercomputer in order to boost its data processing capabilities. According to the US computer Scientist, the array of machines could process photos and video almost 20 times faster than their present systems.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) researchers claimed that the supercomputer will be used as a flawless analytics tool, photos, and video together, build innovative features, and much more. They plan to create AI technologies that will enable users speaking multiple languages to comprehend one other in real-time among many other things.
The AI Research Super Cluster (RSC) machine is already among the top five fastest supercomputers and will be the quickest AI machine in the world once fully developed in the coming months.
Platforms such as Facebook and Google have long been chastised for how they handle and use the information they collect from their users. Both companies are currently facing legal action across the European Union, alleging that data transmission from the union to the US is illegal. Furthermore, the AI algorithms that direct Facebook users to enticing messages have been chastised for contributing to the spread of misinformation and hate speech.
Facebook has publicly regretted the negative consequences of its algorithms, and it has long emphasized its expenditure on internet users and other steps to address problematic material. One of the important use cases for its AI development was screening out hazardous content. according to the researchers, High-definition video was driving up the need for processing power while the corporation pushed for AI technologies based on trillions of cases.
The researchers indicated that supercomputers will assist us in developing whole new AI systems that can, for example, enable real-time speech translations for big groups of individuals speaking different languages so that they may participate in a proposed study or play an AR game together. Ultimately, the collaboration with supercomputers will serve as a stepping stone for the development of technologies for the next major computing platform in which AI-driven applications and products will play a key role.
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta has been working harder than his large tech competitors to develop the concept of the virtual world which envisions an immersive 3D internet powered by virtual reality headgear and sensor technology. The placement of Facebook’s supercomputer is about to be confirmed with the company assuring Reporters that the information is classified.
