Getting infrastructure right for generative AI

CIO

Facts, it has been said, are stubborn things. For generative AI, a stubborn fact is that it consumes very large quantities of compute cycles, data storage, network bandwidth, electrical power, and air conditioning.

Just like with Uber or Google Maps, if you want to get where you are going, you have to be very specific about where you are starting from.
