Theta ushers in AI Age with EdgeCloud Enhancements

It should come as no surprise that Artificial Intelligence (AI) requires lots of dedicated and highly complex computing power. 

Did you know that Theta network has a super power AI enabled offering?  Yes, it even leverages Patent approved by USPTO in Sept. '23

What is it?

Theta EdgeCloud is an enhancement to the Theta Edge Network which was launched with Mainnet 3.0 in 2021.  The primary focus was on GPU intensive video processing required for encoding, transcoding and distribution.  Theta stated working on Natural Language Processing (NLP) back in '22 so they have a great leg up on those just starting.  AI jobs can utilize the Theta network Peer-to-Peer to share resources without paying for them.

When to expect it?  Initial release Spring '24 w/ a potential date of May 1,  with the second release during Summer '24

How successful is the Theta Edge Network for sharing compute resources? Judge for yourself

By sharing compute resources of nearly 10,000 active edge nodes run by community members comprises one of the largest clusters of distributed GPU computing power in the world! The breakdown looks like this:

  • High performance GPUs (~1000 nodes) deliver 36,392 TFLOPS,
  • Medium tier GPUs (~2000 nodes) deliver 28,145 TFLOPS
  • and Low end GPUs (~7000 nodes) deliver an additional 13,002 TFLOPS,
  • total approx. 77,538 TFLOPS or about 80 Petaflop's, roughly equivalent to 250 NVIDIA A100s, always available.

Don't overlook the compute capabilities from their partners

  • an additional 800+ PetaFLOPS through our strategic cloud partners can deliver upwards of 2500 equivalent NVIDIA A100s, enough to train and serve some of the largest language models (LLMs)
