Compute Accounting Principles Can Help Reduce AI Risks Permalink
Computational power, colloquially known as “compute,” is the processing resource required to do computational tasks, such as training artificial intelligence (AI) systems. Compute is arguably a key factor driving AI progress. Over the last decade, it has enabled increasingly large and powerful neural networks and ushered in the age of deep learning. Given compute’s role in AI advances, the time has come to develop standard practices to track the use of these resources.
