RSC, a giant metaverse supercomputer by Meta



Meta, the tech giant previously known as Facebook, revealed Monday that the company built one of the world’s fastest supercomputers. A behemoth called the Research SuperCluster, or RSC. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the system is the fastest for AI activities. In addition with 6,080 graphics processing units packed into 760 Nvidia A100 modules.

The Perlmutter supercomputer, which employs more than 6,000 of the same Nvidia GPUs. Moreover is now the world’s fifth fastest supercomputer, can match that computing power. In a second phase, Meta intends to increase performance by a factor of 2.5 this year by expanding to 16,000 GPUs.



Meta will use RSC for a host of research projects

Meta will use RSC for a number of research projects requiring next-generation performance, including “multimodal” AI. Which draws conclusions from a combination of sound, imagery, and actions rather than just one sort of input data. This could be useful in dealing with the nuances of one of Facebook’s major issues: identifying dangerous content.

Meta, a leading AI researcher, is hoping that the investment will pay off by allowing RSC to assist in the development of the company’s most recent priority. The virtual environment known as the metaverse. RSC could be powerful enough to interpret speech for a big number of people who each speak a different language at the same time.

In a statement, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said; “The experiences we’re designing for the metaverse demand immense compute capacity”. “With RSC, new AI models will be able to learn from billions of samples. Grasp hundreds of languages, and much more.”

According to Meta researchers Kevin Lee and Shubho Sengupta, RSC is around 20 times faster than its prior 2017-era Nvidia machine when it comes to one of the most popular uses of AI: training an AI system to recognize what’s in a photo. It’s nearly three times faster at decoding human speech.

RSC also could help a particularly thorny AI problem that Meta calls self-supervised learning

RSC could also aid with a particularly difficult AI challenge that Meta refers to as self-supervised learning. Most AI models require meticulous tagging. Using stop signs, for example, we can train AI for autonomous vehicles. Moreover the audio is used to train speech recognition AI with transcripts.

Instead, raw, unlabeled data is used in the more difficult process of self-supervised training. So far, humans have the upper hand over computers in this domain.

Meta and other proponents of artificial intelligence have demonstrated that training AI models with greater data sets generates better results. It takes far more computational power to train AI models than it does to run them, which is why iPhones can unlock when they identify your face without having a connection to a data center full of servers.

Supercomputer designers customize their machines by picking the right balance of memory

Designers of supercomputers tailor their machines by balancing memory, GPU performance, CPU performance, power consumption, and internal data paths. The GPU, a type of processor originally developed for accelerated graphics but now utilized for many other computer tasks, is often the star of the show in today’s AI.

The cutting-edge A100 chips from Nvidia are designed for AI and other heavy-duty data center activities. Big firms like Google, as well as a slew of startups, are developing AI processors, some of which are the world’s largest semiconductors.

In combination with Facebook’s own PyTorch AI engine, the A100 GPU foundation is the most productive development environment, according to Facebook.

New Salvador Dali art expo in the metaverse



Before the internet, Salvador Dali conquered the world. Art fans will now be able to communicate with him in the metaverse. Thanks to the famous painter’s recent incursion into the metaverse, millions of art fans may now be able to enjoy the works of Salvador Dali without ever leaving their homes.

A digital art exhibition of Spanish plastic artist Salvador Dal will open in Barcelona, Spain on September 20. The exhibition, dubbed “DAL CIBERNTIC” or “Cyber Dali for the English-speaking audience,” will showcase more than 200 of the artist’s works through the metaverse.

Visitors will be able to enjoy an immersive experience using virtual reality glasses, entering a metaverse where they will be able to create their own avatars and walk freely inside the paintings

Exhibition Hub, a company in charge of curating, producing, and distributing major exhibitions around the world, and Layers of Reality, an audiovisual production company specializing in creating immersive content, collaborated on the project. The digital interaction with the painter, who will use his voice to guide attendees throughout the journey, is one of the most realistic features offered by this exhibition. This new model of digital galleries offers something truly unique.

Jordi Sellas, executive director of the IDEAL Digital Arts Center in Barcelona, stated that the goal of the Digital Arts Center from the beginning was to create an exhibition that would be comparable to the “great Salvador Dali.” A dream that they may be able to realize with a project of this magnitude.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for art lovers, as they will be able to walk through Dal’s universe’s four spaces, which include the sea, the sky, the void, and the desert, immersing themselves for 15 minutes in his most striking works.

Although it is currently unknown which metaverse will host this project, it is without a doubt the first to “digitalize” the works of one of the world’s most important painters. We’ve already reached the point where art and the metaverse collide. Perhaps, in the future, the world’s top museums will be housed on the blockchain, democratizing access to world-class art to a wider audience.

NFSeed is a innovative NFT project



The Sherwood Project’s first NFT is an acorn, the Oak tree’s fruit and a container for its seeds. The acorn is an united emblem of The Sherwood Project’s goal, radiating color against the background of a question. The Sherwood Project’s NFT, or NFSeed, will sprout like a genuine acorn.

Only 8333 NFSeeds are available. Holders may turn their NFSeed into a new, one-of-a-kind NFT, an NFTree, designed by an as-yet-undiscovered visionary. As NFSeed holders, they will have the ability to help choose the visionary, have a say in the creation of an NFT, have an effect on a film, and have unique access to NFT ideas hatched via The Treehouse program.

This NFT project’s NFSeed is not its final form. For holders, the NFTree visionaries, it is the initial step, the seed of a concept, a blank canvas

Every NFSeed has the potential to become an NFTree, a new NFT designed and created by a budding artist. The holder must determine whether or not to turn their NFSeed into an NFTree. In Q4 2022, the NFTree will be introduced.

The proceeds from the public sale of The Sherwood Project’s first NFT will be used to make a film. The documentary feature-length film, co-directed by The Sherwood Project’s creators, filmmakers Luke Dale and Matt Silverman, will capture every facet of The Sherwood Project’s DNA, from the hunt and finding of an NFT visionary through the Treehouse incubation program and the NFT ecosystem at large.

The film’s modest beginnings will be juxtaposed against the cultural pillars of web3, NFTs, cryptography, and art, providing as a definitive picture, a cinematic Polaroid, of this once-in-a-lifetime meeting of technology and culture.

The Treehouse is a project incubator for Web3 and NFT applications. For chosen NFT initiatives, The Treehouse will offer funds, coaching, and a built-in network of customers and supporters. Only The Sherwood Project NFT holders are eligible to apply to join The Treehouse.

Holders of the Sherwood Project NFT will get immediate pre-sale list placement on all Treehouse NFT projects, as well as airdrops, discounts, and other special offers.

Pacsun unveils new metaverse store



Pacsun‘s participation in the ComplexLand 3.0 event is a continuation of their continuing metaverse and blockchain experiments. The garment business started taking Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, and Litecoin through Bitpay in October 2017 to cater to Gen Z customers interested in digital assets.

Brie Olson, president of Pacsun, said in a statement, “Being a part of ComplexLand 3.0 is a huge milestone for us in the metaverse, coming over a year after we released our initial offering of Pacsun-branded products on Roblox.” “There is no denying that the metaverse as a whole has an extraordinary network effort. In addition to customers finding community in the area, we as a brand are able to interact with them in a genuine manner and eventually develop our Pac Community in both the digital and physical realms.”

Diverse brands and businesses, including Forever 21, Crate & Barrel, Tommy Hilfiger, DKNY, and Walmart, have shifted their focus to the metaverse

According to a Gartner assessment, firms shouldn’t spend an excessive amount of resources to a single metaverse component since the adoption of the technologies in this field is early and unconnected.

As companies such as Pacsun explore the metaverse and cryptocurrencies, it is unknown to what degree customers, particularly younger consumers, are interested in these technologies. A research published in April revealed that more than half of Gen Z gamers want to earn money in the metaverse, and a third want to develop careers in the field. However, according to a poll 48% of adolescents were unaware of or disinterested in the metaverse. In the meanwhile, another poll indicated that although 74% of respondents had heard of the metaverse, just 15% felt confident in their ability to describe it to others.

Pacsun is targeting younger clients online and offline. Pacsun released a gender-neutral apparel range for kids aged 4 to 14 last year at Nordstrom, its website, and pop-up shops. PS Reserve, launched in July 2016, provides verified clothing, shoes, and accessories. Pacsun Kids opened its first store in the Mall of America in November and aims to open five more this year.
