Last week, Abu Dhabi-headquartered G42, an artificial intelligence and cloud computing company, launched the “world’s largest supercomputer”, which was designed to tackle healthcare, energy and climate change challenges using artificial intelligence.

The company has joined forces with US AI firm Cerebras Systems to launch Condor Galaxy, a network of nine interconnected supercomputers that should significantly reduce the training time of artificial intelligence, the two companies said in a joint statement on Thursday, 20 July 2023.

The first artificial intelligence supercomputer on the Internet, the Condor Galaxy 1 (CG-1), has a capacity of 4 exaflops and 54 million cores. Exaflop is a measure of a supercomputer’s performance. Cerebras and G42 plan to introduce two more similar supercomputers – CG-2 and CG-3 – in the US in early 2024.
