European Commission Launches Large AI Grand Challenge


The competition aims to foster innovation in large-scale AI models.

The European Commission (EC) has launched a new competition called the Large AI Grand Challenge, which aims to foster innovation and excellence in large-scale AI models.

“Participants in the challenge are invited to submit a proposal for the development of a language foundation model, utilizing one of the EuroHPC JU targeted facilities (i.e., LUMI or Leonardo supercomputers). The model must be trained from scratch, possess a minimum of 30 billion parameters, and be trained following state-of-the-art optimal scaling laws for computing and training data size,” the website says.

The competition, launched in collaboration with EuroHPC Joint Undertaking, will run from November 16 to January 16, 2024.
