With its new computer, Facebook will gain speed on the way to the metaverse.
The new computer, dubbed the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), will be the world’s fastest supercomputer when fully built in mid-2022, according to the tech giant.
RSC will pave the way to building technology for metadata storage, the next major computing platform.
Kevin Lee, Meta’s director of product management, and Shubho Sengupta, a software engineer for AI Research, said the new supercomputer is already partially operational but will be fully built by the middle of this year.
In Meta, people of different languages will be able to communicate without any problems.
In the future, the social media platform will be accessible from the metadata using virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets and smart glasses.
According to Meta, RSC will help its researchers build better AI models that can work in hundreds of different languages, develop new AR tools, and seamlessly analyze text, images, and video simultaneously.
This will enable new AI systems that can provide real-time voice translations to large groups of people in the metadata, each speaking a different language.
This will help them seamlessly collaborate on a research project or play an AR game together.
