Condor Galaxy, the world’s “fastest AI training supercomputer”, has been built with assistance from G42, a UAE-based technology holding group. The machine is actually a network of nine interconnected AI supercomputers developed by US-based AI company Cerebras Systems.

Located in Santa Clara, California, the massive machine boasts 4 exaFLOPs of power and a staggering 54 million cores that will significantly reduce AI processing times.

G42 will use Condor Galaxy to train AI models across a variety of data sets and has already created and tested Arabic bilingual chat, healthcare, and climate study applications.

“Collaborating with Cerebras to rapidly deliver the world’s fastest AI training supercomputer and laying the foundation for interconnecting a constellation of these supercomputers across the world has been enormously exciting,” said Talal Alkaissi, CEO of G42 Cloud. “The partnership brings together Cerebras’ extraordinary compute capabilities, together with G42’s multi-industry AI expertise,” he added.

Training the latest AI models requires enormous computing power and specialized programming skills. ChatGPT, for example, relies on 175 billion parameters and uses 10,000 Nvidia GPUs to train its AI algorithms.

Condor Galaxy brings genuine innovation to these kinds of processes, as all computing is performed entirely without complex distributed programming languages. This means that large projects no longer require weeks or even months spent distributing work over thousands of GPUs.

“Many cloud companies have announced massive GPU clusters that cost billions of dollars to build but are extremely difficult to use. Distributing a single model over thousands of tiny GPUs takes months from dozens of people with rare expertise,” noted Andrew Feldman, CEO of Cerebras Systems. “CG-1 eliminates this challenge. Setting up a generative AI model takes minutes, not months, and can be done by a single person” he added.

The G42 and Cerebras partnership marks another step toward the democratization of AI. The combination of massive computing power and unique AI data sets should produce groundbreaking results and turbocharge hundreds of AI projects around the world.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.

Ahmed Al-Ansi, CEO of Evocargo Autonomous Logistic Services, also expressed optimism that the trials will draw new customers and investments across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. The partnership aims to lead in innovative tech solutions, further establishing the UAE as a pioneer in autonomous transportation.

The successful completion of the trials marks a crucial step towards realizing the UAE’s vision for a technologically advanced and sustainable future in which autonomous vehicles are expected to play a pivotal role in global logistics.
