Data Centre & ML hub

“Recently we announced plans to invest USD 9.5 billion in data centers and offices across the US. One of our state-of-the-art data centers is in Mayes County, Oklahoma. I’m excited to announce that, there, we are launching the world’s largest, publicly-available machine learning hub for our Google Cloud customers,” Sundar Pichai said.

Powered by Cloud TPU v4 Pods, Google Cloud’s ML cluster enmpoers researchers and developers to make breakthroughs at the forefront of AI, allowing them to train increasingly sophisticated models to power workloads such as large-scale natural language processing, recommendation systems, and computer vision algorithms. At 9 exaflops of peak aggregate performance, Cloud TPU v4 Pods is the world’s largest publicly available ML hub in terms of cumulative computing power, while operating at 90% carbon-free energy.  

Sundar Pichai said Google is poised to become one of the first companies to operate all their data centres and offices on 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030.

Google Tensor

The Alphabet CEO said Google Tensor, their custom SOP, would bring AI capabilities like speech recognition to your phone. Combined with Android’s private compute core, it can run data powered features directly on the device to ensure security. 

Google Tensor chip powers Pixel 6, 6Pro and the newly launched Pixel 6a and Pixel watch.
