The exaBITS team, which won first place in this competition, is composed of outstanding members from Harvard, Princeton, UCBerkeley, and UCLA, with working experiences in companies such as Microsoft, Meta, and VMWare. exaBITS provides an economical solution by pooling computing resources from mining rigs and individual computing machines. Theirs unique technology can partition large AI models and run them on very weak GPUs. It is reported that exaBITS was selected as the first and only web3 project in the Harvard Innovation Lab incubation program.

Interestingly, exaBITS’ technical solution can reduce the cost of existing cloud services by 80%, while Alibaba Cloud, one of the largest cloud service providers in the world, is the organizer of this event. As a large enterprise that is constantly innovating, Alibaba Cloud has shown great interest in exaBITS’ innovation in the field of cloud computing. The two parties have had professional exchanges and possible cooperation discussions on the development prospects of decentralized computing.

exaBITS stated that the existing cloud service has long-accumulated stability and commercial application advantages. Once the decentralized computing network is built, its low cost, high efficiency, and never-offline characteristics will gradually emerge. More importantly, with the development of technologies such as AI and Metaverse, traditional cloud services can no longer meet the demand for explosive growth in computing power, while a distributed computing network has unlimited development space.
