Big Takeaway: The Vesuvius Challenge, launched 10 months ago to solve reading ancient scrolls from Herculaneum that were burned in the 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
The $700,000 grand prize winners used AI and computer vision to successfully read the scrolls, unveiling 15 new columns of 2000-year-old text. Revealing new ancient texts on music, food, and pleasure by the Epicurean philosopher Philodemus.
The text unveiled represents only 5% of one scroll, with ongoing efforts in 2024 including a new $100,000 grand prize for reading at least 90% of all four scanned scrolls.
The grand prize winners used three different model architectures and various validation methods to create readable submissions, making the code publicly available as open source.
Big Takeaway: Nvidia is using AI called ChipNeMo to speed up GPU production amid high demand for its chips to power AI systems.
ChipNeMo leverages large language models to answer chip design questions and generate code to streamline the complex GPU design process.
Since its introduction, ChipNeMo has been instrumental in training junior engineers and summarizing coordination notes across numerous teams.
Meta is reportedly accumulating an extensive GPU inventory, targeting a total of 600,000 units, including Nvidia's A100s and H100, by end of 2024. In a gold rush, own the shovels. In an AI boom, own the computing power. -Me😂
