A New Chip Cluster Will Make Massive AI Models Possible

The design can run a big neural network more efficiently than banks of GPUs wired together. But manufacturing and running the chip is a challenge, requiring new methods for etching silicon features, a design that includes redundancies to account for manufacturing flaws, and a novel water system to keep the giant chip chilled.

To build a cluster of WSE-2 chips capable of running AI models of record size, Cerebras had to solve another engineering challenge: how to get data in and out of the chip efficiently. Regular chips have their own memory on board, but Cerebras developed an off-chip memory

COMPUTER & TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT | East Grand Forks Public Schools

Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown in their book, A New Culture of Learning, state “the new culture of learning is grounded in a very simple question: what happens to learning when we move from the stable infrastructure of the 20th Century to the fluid infrastructure of the 21st Century, where technology is constantly creating and responding to change?” We recognized that East Grand Forks Schools is at the beginning stages of this journey.

Teachers at the East Grand Forks District strive to design learning experiences that permit student independence and foster lifelong learning, which is our mission in East

The World’s Largest Computer Chip

Deep learning, the artificial-intelligence technology that powers voice assistants, autonomous cars, and Go champions, relies on complicated “neural network” software arranged in layers. A deep-learning system can live on a single computer, but the biggest ones are spread over thousands of machines wired together into “clusters,” which sometimes live at large data centers, like those operated by Google. In a big cluster, as many as forty-eight pizza-box-size servers slide into a rack as tall as a person; these racks stand in rows, filling buildings the size of warehouses. The neural networks in such systems can tackle daunting problems, but they
