Aileen Black, Public Sector President at Groq, shared, “At GroqDay, industry experts and government leaders will discuss the AI economy powered by human agency. Key missions cannot succeed using traditional solutions; the complex and vast amount of data at the government’s fingertips requires a world-class AI inference solution to produce real-time responses. The Groq LPU™ Inference Engine will demonstrate how the power of real-time AI can transform and solve mission objectives.”

Attendees will learn how the Groq LPU™ Inference Engine, the fastest, most energy-efficient inference solution, can answer our nation’s urgent call for AI implementation. The LPU Inference Engine is available through GroqCloud™ via an API, with private cloud options available to the US government and its allies. Groq hardware is designed, engineered, and manufactured entirely in North America.

Groq recently entered agreements with Aramco Digital and Earth Wind & Power to collaborate on creating AI compute centers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Norway, respectively, to make AI accessible to as many developers, companies, and government entities as possible so that progress may continue.
