Opera Buys Supercomputer to Power AI in Browser

February 7, 2024

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make your web browser smarter and faster? Well, Opera, one of the oldest and most popular browsers, has an answer for you: a mini-supercomputer!

Yes, you read that right. Opera has recently announced that it has bought its own Nvidia H100 mini-supercomputer, which is a powerful machine that can handle complex artificial intelligence (AI) tasks. The H100 is based on Nvidia's Hopper architecture, which is designed for AI and not for graphics. This means that the H100 can process huge amounts of data and learn from it, making it a perfect fit for Opera's AI feature, called Aria.

Aria is a generative AI component that Opera added to its browsers last year. It can do amazing things like creating poems, stories, songs, and even code, based on your input and preferences. You can also ask Aria questions and get answers from its vast knowledge base. Aria is like having your own personal assistant in your browser, ready to help you with anything you need.

Opera says that having its own mini-supercomputer will allow it to run small-scale AI models that are specifically focused on improving browser usage and experiences. This means that Aria will become faster, smarter, and more personalized for each user. Opera also says that its mini-supercomputer is located in Iceland, which is a great place for running large compute clusters, thanks to its low carbon energy and cool climate.

Opera is not the only browser that is using AI to enhance its features. Microsoft has Copilot in Edge, Brave has Brave Talk, and Arc Max has Arc AI. But Opera is the first one to have its own mini-supercomputer dedicated to AI. This shows how serious Opera is about bringing AI to the web and making it accessible to everyone.

So, what are you waiting for? Try Opera today and see what Aria can do for you. You might be surprised by how much fun and useful AI can be in a web browser. Check out the source article for more info and stay tuned for the latest news in artificial intelligence!
