Very interesting chip -

"Cerebras is a computer systems company dedicated to accelerating deep learning.

The Cerebras Wafer-Scale Engine (WSE) is the largest chip ever built. It is the heart of our deep learning system.

56x larger than any other chip, the WSE delivers more compute, more memory, and more communication bandwidth. This enables AI research at previously-impossible speeds and scale.

The Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine 46,225 mm2 with 1.2 Trillion transistors and 400,000 AI-optimized cores.

By comparison, the largest Graphics Processing Unit is 815 mm2 and has 21.1 Billion transistors.


I'm putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all, I think, that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
