Microsoft has created a highly efficient supercomputer, which will help the artificial intelligence initiatives through its Azure cloud computing service. The super machine is powered with 285000 processor cores and has around 100000 graphic chips for OpenAI. OpenAI works for AI efforts that can be helpful to humans.
Microsoft announced an AI supercomputer.
In the Build Conference for developers, last Tuesday, Microsoft announced the new machine, the Supercomputer, which is the most efficient and most substantial computing machine in the world to date. It can handle the most significant problems like simulating nuclear weapon explosions.
Highly efficient in handling big problems and calculations
The highly capable machine can help predict the earth’s climate and assist in developing drugs for viruses. Microsoft intends to use the Supercomputer to develop AI tools and systems which can be used at different places.

Microsoft partnered with OpenAI for Supercomputer
The tech behemoth had announced multiple years of supercomputer partnership with OpenAI last year with an investment of massive 1 Billion dollars by the tech giant. Supercomputers are listed based on their speed tow times every year in the Top500 project in which the machines are scored based on their Linpack mathematical calculation test speed.
Azure machine highly competitive
As per Microsoft, the Azure machine may score in the Top 5 in the system. However, it has not yet released any scores or design of the system.
Artificial Intelligence ready
Microsoft said that its Supercomputer is great for “AI which learns from examining billions of pages of publicly available text.”
Highly efficient model
The company further added that “This type of model can so deeply absorb the nuances of language, grammar, knowledge, concepts, and context that it can excel at multiple tasks: summarizing a lengthy speech, moderating content in live gaming chats, finding relevant passages across thousands of legal files or even generating code from scouring GitHub.”
