Advai announces High Powered Compute (HPC) Partnership with Edinburgh Parallel Compute Centre (EPCC) to evaluate AI safety. This partnership helps us rises to meet the significant computational demands required for certain types of AI safety testing. 

EPCC, powered by a £110m investment in the Edinburgh International Data Facility (EIDF) as part of the Edinburgh & SE Scotland City Region Deal, is providing its state-of-the-art AI infrastructure to support Advai's AI Safety research. We will use this computational power to further progress research in AI safety by using its 'Adversarial AI' technology to identify vulnerabilities in systems like Large Language Models (LLMs). As an early commercial user, we provide valuable feedback.
