Did you ever wonder how much further AI can scale?

In this session, Nidhi Chappell (Head of Product, Specialized Azure Compute at Microsoft) and Christopher Berner (Head of Compute at OpenAI) share their perspectives and insight about how the Microsoft-OpenAI partnership is taking significant steps to eliminate the barriers of scale to AI processes.

Of specific interest is OpenAI’s new GPT-3 natural language processing model that required 175 billion parameters to train properly.

The rapid evolution of the cloud to support massive computational models across HPC and AI workloads is shifting paradigms giving customers options that were previously only possible with dedicated on-premises solutions or supercomputing centers.

Steve Scott, Technical Fellow and CVP Hardware Architecture at Microsoft Azure, shares his experiences from his first 5 months at Microsoft.
