Training AI models can be incredibly computationally intensive. Researchers often use supercomputers to ready the models, and the impact can be severe: the training process for a single model can be intensive enough to produce the carbon emissions produced by five cars over their entire vehicle lifespans. Apart from the upfront costs and impacts, this computational intensity can also ... Full article
