Hi everyone,

I’m the founder of Good Ai Lab and we have just launched our new product https://clusterone.com. It’s a very big project that heavily depends on a community of people being involved and I would love to get your feedback on it. At Cluster One we are trying to help advance science by building the world's largest AI supercomputer. I've written an article on Medium explaining why we've created Cluster One - feel free to read it here: https://medium.com/@mhejrati/announcing-cluster-one-the-largest-ai-supercomputer-3abff76a0bb2

We understand how much computing power is wasted every day (around 10 billions hours!) and we feel that with our expertise, and if we all join together, we could really make a difference in advancing scientific research.

For example, take Diabetic Retinopathy, a disease that affects people with diabetes, and can ultimately cause blindness. It affects nearly 100 Million people in the world.
For the sake of understanding what it would take to offer a screening solution through AI, let us assume the following.

- explore 100 ideas
- run 50 experiments per idea
- run each of them for a week of computation, on 50 machines

That’s a total of 42MM compute hours.

That would cost around $10MM on the public cloud (eg: on AWS’s c4.2xlarge), or several dozens of millions of upfront investment for a private infrastructure.
Or it could be provided by 15,000 contributors who provide 8 hours of compute a day for a year, on recent computers.

The product has just launched this week and so I would love your feedback on the site to understand if everything makes sense and would it be something you would want to try, and if not what would stop you?
