Liquid Cooling Artificial Intelligence

Cooling Artificial Intelligence

Last summer we did a post discussing the development of dedicated systems for cooling artificial intelligence systems and how the future of AI relies more on thermal management than ever. This spring has only confirmed how the pioneers of artificial intelligence systems require higher cooling capacities. The Next Generation: Google’s TPU 3.0 Google recently announced the release of its
