TL;DR: Private companies are in desperate need for additional GPU computing capabilities to train their new generative AI services, yet they are encountering significant challenges in obtaining them. In contrast, researchers involved in US supercomputing projects currently have access to potent Nvidia GPU nodes at a substantial discount, albeit for a limited time.
The days when GPUs were only used for graphics rendering in games are long gone. Join us as we look at how the processor became the dominant chip in compute and AI.

The bleeding edge: In case you haven't noticed, AI technology is all the rage with the kids lately. If it's not Dall-E or Stable Fusion; it's ChatGP, Bart, Bing Chat, or some other company's large language model. Not wanting to get left in the dust, the UK sank a sizable investment into building the next exascale supercomputer.
