Prof. Mark Parsons, Director of EPCC at the University of Edinburgh, and Andy Hock, VP of Product at Cerebras, will announce a new state-of-the-art 'as a Service' offering for natural language processing (NLP) models at a webinar on 10 June.
EPCC recently acquired the first Cerebras CS-1 system in Europe for the Edinburgh International Data Facility of the Edinburgh & South East Scotland City Region Deal. This leading-edge AI deployment enables the next wave of NLP and data science research for public, private and academic sectors across the City Region and the UK.
The Cerebras CS-1 system uses the largest processor ever built to greatly reduce training time for the largest models today: 100x+ faster than a traditional GPU. The speakers will discuss Cerebras’ distinct advantages over traditional training infrastructure, relevant use cases, and opportunities to apply for early testing and access.
