The Chinese have created artificial intelligence scale of the human brain

Chinese scientists have created what they call a “human-brain-scale artificial intelligence model” based on one of their latest supercomputers powered by Sunway processors. The scientists say the 174 trillion parameter AI model can be used for applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to scientific research.

The Sunway OceanLight system used is based on 96,000 nodes running on 390-core Sunway SW39010 APUs, with a total of almost 40 million cores. This machine was advertised as one of the world’s first exascale supercomputers.

A Chinese team of researchers from the National Research Center for Parallel Computing and Technology (NRCPC) confirms that the artificial intelligence model they created includes about 174 trillion parameters, which allows it to compete with the number of synapses in the human brain. OceanLight’s actual performance is now claimed to be 5.3 ExaFLOPS with AI, up from 4.4 ExaFLOPS with mixed precision.

Scientists from the NRCPC told the South China Morning Post that in order to achieve decent performance with a brain-scale AI model, they had to implement “hardware in-node optimization” as well as “hybrid parallel strategies” on an unprecedented scale. Considering the fact that OceanLight has 96,000 nodes and almost 40 million cores, optimizing the hardware and software for this system is a very difficult task.

The announcement of the unprecedented AI model comes just weeks after Oak Ridge National Laboratory officially unveiled its Frontier, the world’s first supercomputer with 1,102 FP64 ExaFLOPS performance in the Linpack test. Notably, the NRCPC has not officially published the performance results of its OceanLight in the Top 500 Supercomputers list.

Samsung is spending more on RDor less It all depends

Samsung Electronics’ R&D spending for the first half of this year amounted to $9.19 billion compared to $8.3 billion a year earlier.

Samsung is spending more on R&D...or less?  It all depends on how you count.

Despite this, the investment-to-revenue ratio fell to 7.9%. Moreover, the figure has been steadily declining since 2021. Before that, it was actively growing, increasing from 7.4% in 2018 to 9.8% in 2020.

During the same period, Samsung’s investments in factories and facilities amounted to $15.2 billion, with about 80% of this amount spent on everything related to the company’s semiconductor business, which has been Samsung’s most important in recent years. At the same time, these investments are $2.5 billion less than what the company invested in its facilities in the first half of 2021.

NASA has placed SLS rockets on the launch pad for launch as part of the Artemis 1 mission.

The Americans installed the most powerful launch vehicle in the world at the moment on the launch pad.  SLS is due to make its first flight on August 29

The launch is scheduled for August 29th. The Artemis 1 mission involves testing the Orion spacecraft and launching it to the moon. The mission will last from 39 to 42 days. Among other things, one of the most important moments of the mission will be the return of the ship to Earth. Orion will not just return, but will enter the upper atmosphere twice. The first entry will be partial with a further return to a higher orbit, after which a full re-entry and landing will follow. Thus, NASA will test the ship for strength.

As for the rocket, once launched, the SLS will be the most powerful rocket currently in use. It is capable of launching up to 95 tons of cargo into the reference orbit, and in the future, after modifications, the figure can be increased to 130 tons. It is capable of delivering 27 tons to the moon.

NASA expects that the upcoming launch will attract a huge number of people to the beach near the spaceport. Cocoa Beach city officials estimate that between 100,000 and 200,000 people will come to watch the launch.

SpaceX has won one of its first Starship launch contracts. Despite the fact that she has not yet had a single full-fledged launch, the mission in question is scheduled for 2024.

Starship has never flown before, but SpaceX already has a contract to launch a satellite with this rocket.

Japanese company SKY Perfect JSAT Holdings has chosen Starship to launch its Superbird-9 communications satellite into geosynchronous transfer orbit.

There is no other data on cooperation with SpaceX in the corresponding press release. Including the unknown amount of the contract. As for the satellite, we are talking about the HTS class (High Throughput Satellites) – these are communication satellites with high bandwidth. The company says that the satellite configuration can be flexibly adjusted to the needs of a particular customer.
