NVIDIA Delivers AI Supercomputer to Berkeley NVIDIA Blog


NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang earlier this year delivered our NVIDIA DGX-1 AI supercomputer in a box to the University of California, Berkeley's Berkeley AI Research Lab (BAIR). BAIR's over two dozen faculty and more than 100 graduate students are at the cutting edge of multi-modal deep learning, human-compatible AI and connecting AI with other scientific disciplines and the humanities. "I'm delighted to deliver one of the first ones to you," Jen-Hsun told a group of researchers at BAIR celebrating the arrival of their DGX-1. The team at BAIR are working on a dazzling array of AI problems across a huge array of fields -- and they're eager to experiment with as many different approaches as possible. To do that, they need speed, explains Pieter Abbeel, an associate professor at UC Berkeley's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
