    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

    The lack of size diverse models in online shopping is costing the planet, here’s why

    Unpacking the real cost of online returns. Don’t you just love it when retailers make it super simple (and guilt-free) to return things? It takes away the risk and means you can try out those things you like, without being stuck with them if they don’t look quite like they did on the website. Some retailers have made it so easy to return, that many people I know will buy an item in three sizes, fully aware they’ll return at least two. Others I know will buy 10 things and only keep the best of the batch. For more sustainable
