Facebook Shows GPU-based System for AI

Facebook will open source its design for a GPU-based system optimized for machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).

The hardware system, code-named "Big Sur", was developed by Facebook's engineering team to run its software capable of answering questions based on ingested stories and articles. Big Sur is Open Rack-compatible and incorporates eight high-performance GPUs of up to 300 watts each, with the flexibility to configure between multiple PCI-e topologies. It uses NVIDIA's Tesla Accelerated Computing Platform.

Facebook said its plan to open-source Big Sur and will submit the design materials to the Open Compute Project (OCP).
