Microsoft announces dedicated Cloud for healthcare industry

Microsoft builds massive AI supercomputer for OpenAI

In July last year, Microsoft invested $1 billion (Dh3.67bn) in OpenAI and announced a multi-year partnership to develop supercomputing technologies. Microsoft claims that this new supercomputer developed with OpenAI is among the top five supercomputers listed in the TOP500 in the world. The supercomputer consists of "a single system with more than 285,000 CPU cores, 10,000 GPUs and 400 gigabits per second of network connectivity for each GPU server".

While we don't have measurements of its raw computing power, Microsoft was happy to talk about all the hardware inside its new supercomputer.

The tools aim to help developers understand, protect and control their models throughout the machine learning lifecycle to ensure that their models are behaving fairly. Microsoft's Turing models refer to a family of large AI models the company uses to improve language understanding across Office, Bing, Dynamics and other products. The model has been used to boost Microsoft's Bing, Office, and Dynamics software, the USA super-corp said. "For this reason, Microsoft will be making the Fluid Framework open source, allowing developers and creators to use key infrastructure from Fluid Framework in their own applications". Deepspeed is a Python library that speeds up the process of training large machine-learning models across multiple compute nodes.

"This has enabled things that were seemingly impossible with smaller models", said Luis Vargas, a Microsoft partner technical advisor who is spearheading the company's AI at Scale initiative.

Trudeau said one of the challenges with the apps so far is that the app has to be open on your phone to work, draining battery. Tam said initially it was believed the novel coronavirus was only spreading from people showing symptoms.

While Microsoft is known for general productivity software such as Outlook and the chat app Teams, it also makes more specialized business software such as programs used by customer service agents and artificial intelligence tools that software developers can use to make chat bots. Now, it's planning to open source its various Microsoft Turing models along with instructions on how to train it all for specific tasks in its Azure cloud platform.

One of those is interpretML, which Microsoft launched a while ago, but also the Fairlearn toolkit, which can be used to assess the fairness of ML models, and which is now available as an open-source tool and which will be built into Azure Machine Learning next month. Based on the feedback and excitement of all the customers in the private preview, we are able to deliver Azure Arc enabled Kubernetes in preview to our customers.

Microsoft has also promised to stream coding workshops live on Twitch, but the company has yet to share details on which Twitch channel they will be hosting.
