The University of Florida recently turned on the eighth most powerful supercomputer in higher education and 22nd most powerful supercomputer in the world. And added 100 new AI-focused faculty to the already several hundred who are engaged in AI.
It’s a complete transformation of higher education, built on artificial intelligence as a core competency.
