The overarching focus of the consortium is to bring together groups interested in building, training, and using large-scale models with those who are building and operating large-scale computing systems. The target community encompasses (a) those working on AI methods development, natural language processing/multimodal approaches and architectures, full stack implementations, scalable libraries and frameworks, AI workflows, data aggregation, cleaning and organization, training runtimes, model evaluation, downstream adaptation, alignment, etc.; (b) those that design and build hardware and software systems; and (c) those that will ultimately use the resulting AI systems to attack a range of problems in science, engineering, medicine, and other domains.
