        Are We Ready for Human Brain-Scale AI?

        Targeted at hyperscale data centers, the Prodigy Universal Processor architecture is predicted to out-perform central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), and tensor processing units (TPUs) for data center, artificial intelligence (AI), and high-performance computing (HPC) applications. For example, Prodigy will outperform NVIDIA’s fastest GPU in HPC, as well as AI training and inference tasks (125 HPC Prodigy racks can deliver 32 tensor EXAFLOPS).

        Customer Spotlight: Tachyum’s Universal Processor for Hyperscale Data Centers

        Social media posts and video streaming. E-commerce transactions and e-mail communications. Online gaming and business applications. These are just a few examples of everyday activities that rely on data centers. As data center usage continues to skyrocket to support increased internet traffic, their impact on the planet’s energy usage will need to be mitigated before it all hits a wall. What’s more, there’s opportunity to make better use of existing data center resources, diverting otherwise idle processing capacity toward various practical pursuits.

        Tachyum, with offices in the U.S. and Slovakia, has a solution for this performance plateau: Prodigy, the world’s first universal processor for servers, artificial intelligence (AI), and high-performance computing (HPC).

        Meet Dr. Radoslav Danilak- The Man Behind Tachyum

        Prodigy’s intense computing muscle can help AI use cases in particular. Convolutional neural networks, deep learning AI, symbolic AI, general AI, and bio AI are the disciplines that have emerged in recent years, each with its own set of algorithms and computing criteria. Human brain modeling, meanwhile, is in high demand by R&D ventures due to its promise of extracting information from large data sets. The Tachyum Universal Processor Platform is suitable for projects like the real-time Human Brain Project, which needs more than 1019 Flops (10,000,000,000,000,000,000 floating-point operations per second – 10 exaflops), as well as supplying computing resources for science and engineering solutions that today’s systems cannot offer.

        Tachyum CEO Discusses Benefits of Homogenous Architectures at HPC User Forum

        “Different approaches to HPC workloads provide different pros and cons,” said Danilak. “Rather than make users choose which approach best satisfies their use case and accept the deficiencies that particular method may impose, we are suggesting they implement a solution backed by the Prodigy Universal Processor to enable computing systems that inherently unify CPU, GPGPU HPC, TPU/GPGPU AI inference and training workloads with Explainable, Bio, General, Spiking and Deep Learning AI.”
