Nearly 10 months after the release of ChatGPT, generative AI has seen rapid growth as it is utilized to transform various industries. In fact, the global generative AI market is currently worth over $13 billion and is expected to surpass $22 billion by 2025, according to Precedence Research.

At the heart of this revolution: researchers and developers. Now, those developers will have generative AI supercomputing at their fingertips thanks to NVIDIA and Hugging Face.

By giving developers access to NVIDIA (News - Alert) DGX Cloud AI supercomputing within the Hugging Face platform to train and tune advanced AI models, the combination helps supercharge industry adoption of generative AI using LLMs that are custom-tailored with business data for industry-specific applications, including intelligent chatbots, search and summarization.

The Hugging Face platform, adopted by over 15,000 organizations and boasts a community that has shared over 250,000 models and 50,000 datasets, enables developers to create, train and deploy advanced AI models using open-source resources.

The DGX Cloud integration with Hugging Face will bring one-click access to NVIDIA’s multi-node AI supercomputing platform. With DGX Cloud, Hugging Face users can connect to NVIDIA AI supercomputing, providing the software and infrastructure needed to rapidly train and tune foundation models with unique data to drive a new wave of enterprise LLM development.

Each instance of DGX Cloud features eight NVIDIA H100 or A100 80GB Tensor Core GPUs for 640GB of GPU memory per node. NVIDIA Networking provides a high-performance, low-latency fabric that ensures workloads scale across clusters of interconnected systems to meet the performance requirements of advanced AI workloads. Support from NVIDIA experts is included with DGX Cloud to help customers optimize their models and quickly resolve development challenges.

“People around the world are making new connections and discoveries with generative AI tools,” said Clément Delangue, co-founder and CEO of Hugging Face. “Our collaboration will bring NVIDIA’s most advanced AI supercomputing to Hugging Face to enable companies to take their AI destiny into their own hands with open source to help the open-source community easily access the software and speed they need to contribute to what’s coming next.”

The partnership will also offer a new service called Training Cluster as a Service to simplify the creation of new and custom generative AI models for the enterprise. With Training Cluster as a Service, powered by DGX Cloud, companies will be able to leverage their unique data for Hugging Face to create unique efficient models in record time.

“Hugging Face and NVIDIA are connecting the AI community with NVIDIA’s AI computing platform,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “Together, NVIDIA AI computing is just a click away for the Hugging Face community.”

The potential for generative AI to transform industries and drive innovation is clear, and this partnership between NVIDIA and Hugging Face is poised to play a role in the generative AI market growth.
