New TED AI Lab Featuring Cerebras Systems CS-1 AI Accelerator Opens in Tokyo
CS-1 Selected to Dramatically Reduce Training Time and Offer Ultra-Low Latency Inference for AI Models
TOKYO & SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tokyo Electron Device (TED) and Cerebras Systems, a company dedicated to accelerating Artificial Intelligence (AI) compute, today announced the opening of the TED AI Lab, featuring the industry-leading Cerebras Systems CS-1 AI accelerator. Designed to test, verify and support deep learning applications, including Natural Language Processing (NLP), the new TED AI Lab selected CS-1 in order to dramatically reduce training time for increasingly complex AI models.
“We are thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with TED, and we commend them on opening a leading-edge AI lab that will support customers in performing the hardest AI work more quickly and more easily,” said Andrew Feldman, CEO and co-founder of Cerebras. “As Cerebras continues our rapid global expansion, we look forward to realizing our mission of driving AI compute excellence in the innovative market of Japan.”
TED AI Lab Overview
Located in TED’s Engineering Center (Tsuzuki-ku, Yokohama), the new TED AI Lab provides an environment for customers who want to train AI models more rapidly than ever before and optimally scale AI development. Users of the ultra-fast Cerebras CS-1 deep learning system can evaluate performance of the dedicated AI accelerator, optimize for system scale.
“Cerebras Systems is pleased with the opening of the TED AI Lab, featuring the Cerebras CS-1,” said Hiromasa Ebi, GM, Cerebras Systems G.K. “Through the TED AI Lab's verification environment service, we hope that customers in data centers, research institutes, and academic institutions who are looking for a large-scale deep learning environment using big data will be able to try out Cerebras' ultra-fast deep learning system in order to achieve faster processing times, at less power consumption and less space. Cerebras Systems looks forward to continuing to work with Tokyo Electron Device to expand business opportunities and contribute to the development of AI technology in Japan.”
Verification Support Service
The TED AI Lab include the Cerebras CS-1 system, and the entire system environment is available for use. TED engineers will provide lectures on product usage, Q&A sessions, and other verification support, helping users to reproduce and verify their own on-premise environments. In addition to remote access, users can connect and use the system on-site even when the cloud environment is not available for security reasons.

About Cerebras Systems
Cerebras Systems is a team of pioneering computer architects, computer scientists, deep learning researchers, and engineers of all types. We have come together to build a new class of computer to accelerate artificial intelligence work by three orders of magnitude beyond the current state of the art. The CS-2 is the fastest AI computer in existence. It contains a collection of industry firsts, including the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine (WSE-2). The WSE-2 is the largest chip ever built. It contains 2.6 trillion transistors and covers more than 46,225 square millimeters of silicon. The largest graphics processor on the market has 54 billion transistors and covers 815 square millimeters. In artificial intelligence work, large chips process information more quickly producing answers in less time. As a result, neural networks that in the past took months to train, can now train in minutes on the Cerebras CS-2 powered by the WSE-2.
