SenseTime AI Computing Center with 5,000 cabinets officially opened

Recently, SenseTime AIDC located in Lingang New Area of Shanghai officially started operation.


SenseTime AI data center has a total construction area of 130,000 square meters, with 5,000 cabinets built in the first phase, with a design peak computing power of over 3,740 Petaflops (1 Petaflop equals 1 quadrillion floating-point operations per second) and storage of 160pb. It is one of the largest AI data centers in Asia.


In April 2018, SenseTime launched the AI computer prototype development project.

On July 7, 2020, the AI data center started construction in Lingang New Area.

In December 2020,  the main structure of the AI data center was completed, and it took only 168 days from the start of construction to the completion.

AIDC is an important computing power base for the SenseCore AI large-scale installation, and will also provide computing power for industrial digital transformation, major scientific research breakthroughs and smart city construction. On the day of its opening, SenseTime AIDC was awarded the title of "Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Fusion Empowerment Center" by the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Information Technology.

At the 16th China IDC Industry Annual Ceremony held on December 21-22, Yang Song, deputy general manager of Shanghai Shangtang Technology Development Co., Ltd., delivered a keynote speech on "Intelligent Computing Center Drives AI to Empower All Industries". In his speech, he said that from experience, artificial intelligence computing power will encounter the following three problems:

1. How to adapt the heterogeneous computing power of multiple artificial intelligences in the intelligent computing center;

2. How to lower the threshold for the use of computing power in artificial intelligence scenarios;

3. How to transform the demand of massive scenes into the demand of computing power.

He pointed out that the most important thing for the AI data center is how to apply AI computing power in the data center.


According to relevant information, SenseTime AIDC has four core advantages:

AIDC can provide large-scale elastic computing power, complete the complete training of 1 trillion parameter models, and achieve large-scale coverage of new scenarios at low marginal cost;

AIDC can provide a large-scale application environment for domestic smart chips, form AI computing services with more cost advantages, and promote ecological innovation of domestic smart chips;

AIDC has a highly sophisticated privacy and data protection scheme that provides a variety of protection measures ranging from physical isolation to resource isolation. SenseTime has also passed ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 29151 information security management system certification, and continues to provide trusted security services that meet global standards.

Low network delay design, providing low-cost high-quality network services. By connecting to the National (Shanghai) New Internet Exchange Center, AIDC will provide the industry with low-cost, high-quality network services and AI computing services.

In the listing materials, SenseTime lists "strong artificial intelligence infrastructure (SenseCore)" as one of the eight competitive advantages compared to other AI companies, and will "continue to increase investment in SenseCore artificial intelligence infrastructure and models." “ which is included in the core strategy.

Due to the adoption of a series of green and low-carbon technologies, the power consumption of the SenseTime AI Data Center is expected to be about 10% lower than the average level of data centers in China, saving about 45 million kWh per year. It is expected that around 2025, the intelligent computing center will reach Peak CO2 emissions, the peak emissions are estimated to be no more than 350,000 tons of CO2 equivalent; it is expected to reach net zero emissions around 2050.
