What does the CEO say? The company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg stated that developing new AI models will require massive computing power and computers performing quintillions of operations per second. He added:

“We hope RSC will help us build entirely new AI systems that can, for example, power real-time voice translations to large groups of people, each speaking a different language, so they can seamlessly collaborate on a research project or play an AR game together.”

What is the opinion of the experts? Camila Russo, a DeFi-analyst, compared the new Meta project to the Ethereum network, which some industry representatives perceive as a global supercomputer. Raja Koduri, vice president of the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group at Intel, stated that the current computing infrastructure will have to improve thousands of times to power the metaverse’s operation.
