PRIME is a research lab in the School of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics at Wits University. We focus on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques for Perception and Representation Learning. The AI models that we train are very large and require weeks of computing to learn, which is where the CHPC is essential. The primary goal of this research is to be able to learn good representations of data that is unlabelled. This means that in the future, AI can learn from large unlabelled datasets which are cheaper to create, and then fine-tune their understanding of the world on smaller, more expensive, labelled dataset.
