The architecture of a graphics processing unit is uniquely well-suited to performing the computational tasks used for running AI models.  Several years of intense engineering development have resulted in a complete hardware and software platform for AI research, development, and large-scale deployment.  We will look at NVIDIA’s strategy to address the most difficult computing challenges, and the solutions we have developed.  The Cambridge-1 AI supercomputer is a concrete example of the capability.  This system, which will be available for U.K. healthcare researchers to work on pressing problems, is located at Kao Data, a data centre using 100 percent renewable energy. Cambridge-1 would rank among the world’s top three most energy-efficient supercomputers.
