  • Developers can submit their project for consideration here
  • HIVE is expanding its GPU footprint and is in the NVIDIA partner network and is compliant as a Cloud Service Provider ("CSP")

HIVE Executive Chairman Frank Holmes commented, "This contest is our way of supporting the AI community. We want to better understand what AI developers need from their cloud providers. At the same time, we get to support very promising open-source projects. It's a win-win."

Aydin Kilic, HIVE President and CEO, added, "We're committed to advancing the capabilities of open-source AI. Llama 2 by Meta, is a great example of an open-source large language model. In addition to growing the revenue from our GPU infrastructure, we are also running Llama 2 on a HIVE GPU node for research purposes. The landscape has changed since Llama 2 outpaced GPT 3.5 Turbo, and we're now seeing a surge in efforts to optimize open-source models. HIVE is committed to fostering this trend and is evaluating options to expand our grant program to back more teams in setting new records."

Mr. Kilic continued, "We extend an open invitation to AI developers worldwide aiming for unprecedented model performance to apply today. Whether you're enhancing an existing model with fresh data or exploring innovative architectural designs, we want you on board. Our aim is to collaborate with talented individuals who have ambitious ideas but may lack the necessary resources. Assisting the growth of noteworthy open-source projects will be an invaluable experience for our team."

HIVE Digital Technologies Ltd. is now compliant as a NVIDIA Cloud Service Provider, which includes designation as preferred partner for NVIDIA AI. HIVE is converting its 38,000 data-center-grade NVIDIA GPU cards into an on-demand GPU HPC infrastructure service to provide the backbone for AI compute requirements. The Company is currently renting out its powerful GPU servers on marketplaces which match customers with providers. To learn more about HIVE's recent progress in this area, read our October 10, 2023 press release. With the GPU grant contest, will allow the company to offer compute directly to end-users.
