[ExI] A New Chip Cluster Will Make Massive AI Models Possible

"Cerebras Systems <https://cerebras.net/>, a startup that has already built
the world’s largest computer chip
<https://www.wired.com/story/power-ai-startup-built-really-big-chip/>, has
now developed technology that lets a cluster of those chips run AI models
that are more than a hundred times bigger than the most gargantuan ones
around today.

Cerebras says it can now run a neural network with 120 trillion
connections, mathematical simulations of the interplay between biological
neurons and synapses. The largest AI models in existence today have about a
trillion connections, and they cost many millions of dollars to build and
train. But Cerebras says its hardware will run calculations in about a 50th
of the time of existing hardware. Its chip cluster, along with power and
cooling requirements, presumably still won’t come cheap, but Cerberas at
least claims its tech will be substantially more efficient."
