Taking advantage of new kinds of neural network models to accelerate drug discovery

GlaxoSmithKline is a pharmaceutical company dedicated to improving the quality of human life by helping people do more, feel better, and live longer. Innovation is at the core of their mission and in order to take advantage of new kinds of neural network models for drug discovery, they realized they needed an AI solution with larger memory and throughput. With a CS-1 system, they are increasing the complexity of their models, while decreasing training time by 80x.

Last year we generated more data in three months than in our entire 300-year history. With the Cerebras CS-1, we have been able to increase the complexity of the encoder models that we can generate, while decreasing their training time by 80x.
