May 20, Tianjin, China – Today Graphcore officially participated in the 5th World Intelligence Conference held in Tianjin, and focused on displaying the MK2 full line of products based on the second-generation IPU (MK2 IPU). This is also the first appearance of the above products in China, allowing Chinese innovators to experience the powerful AI computing brought by the IPU up close. At the same time, Nigel Toon, co-founder and CEO of Graphcore, and Lu Tao, senior vice president and general manager of Graphcore in China, will speak at the summit of this conference and the 3rd Industrial Internet-Intelligent Connected Vehicle Industry-City Collaborative Development Summit Forum. speech.
The Graphcore booth is located at No. N3-B02, Hall N3, Tianjin Meijiang Convention and Exhibition Center. The booth focused on cutting-edge AI computing, and focused on displaying the full line of MK2 products including IPU-Machine: M2000 (IPU-M2000) and IPU-POD system. The MK2 IPU is the most sophisticated processor in the world, integrating 59.4 billion transistors on a 7-nanometer chip with 1,472 truly independent processor cores. The IPU-M2000 is a plug-and-play machine intelligence blade computing unit that integrates 4 MK2 IPUs to provide 1 petaFLOPS of machine intelligence computing.
IPU-M2000, a slim 1U blade machine with easy expansion flexibility and outstanding ease of use, can be flexibly matched with Graphcore-certified host servers provided by server OEMs such as Dell and Inspur according to workload requirements. The proportions of which constitute the IPU-POD system. With the support of Poplar software supporting the IPU, this system has the potential of tens of billions of computing power, which can accelerate the application of IPU in various fields such as cloud and data center, Internet, finance, medical and life science, automobile, education, smart retail, etc. Innovations and applications in the field of AI.
Graphcore’s MK2 product is one of the few processor products in the world that can train BERT-Large models. Graphcore will demonstrate the operation of the BERT-Large model on the IPU-POD system live at the booth. The IPU accelerates the training and inference speed of the BERT-Large model, providing shorter training time and higher throughput with very low inference latency. Graphcore technical experts will also interact with visitors at the booth, showing visitors how Graphcore continues to develop the IPU ecosystem with the support of partners such as Kingsoft Cloud, and helps Chinese innovators break the shackles of traditional hardware architecture with advantages such as low migration costs. Achieve breakthrough technology innovation.
Nigel Toon, co-founder and CEO of Graphcore, said: “Technology has become an important driver of China’s economic development, and China is the fastest growing market for Graphcore’s AI computing technology. Chinese innovators are working with leading technical talents around the world to use the Graphcore system. Accelerate AI innovation and continuously unleash the development potential of AI technology. Graphcore has always been fulfilling its firm commitment to the Chinese market, supporting Chinese innovators to easily obtain IPU resources, and helping innovative talents achieve new technological breakthroughs in the field of machine intelligence.”
Lu Tao, senior vice president and general manager of China, Graphcore, said: “We are very happy to participate in the World Intelligence Conference, a technology event, and make full use of this platform to communicate with industry elites in various fields. In this vibrant innovation hot spot in China Graphcore continues to enrich local technical support, vigorously develop local channels, and support the vigorous development of local ecosystems. We hope to continue to explore the AI application scenarios of IPU in China, enable efficient AI computing through IPU, and release the potential of new AI technologies. Support Chinese innovators as they continue to push the boundaries of machine intelligence.”
At the summit of this conference, Graphcore co-founder and CEO Nigel Toon will share profound insights on the AI industry and Graphcore’s firm commitment to the Chinese market. At the same time, Lu Tao, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Graphcore China, will also attend the 3rd Industrial Internet-Intelligent Connected Vehicle Industry-City Humanities Collaborative Development Summit Forum in this conference. Leaders from all walks of life discussed the development trend of the AI industry and how to promote the implementation of AI technology in vertical fields and accelerate intelligent transformation.
