🌸 #BigScience’s #BLOOM is finally out 🌸
The result of this collaborative initiative led by Hugging Face is the largest open-access multilingual language model ever.
📌An autoregressive Large Language Model (#LLM), trained to continue text from a prompt on extensive text data using industrial-scale computational resources.
📌176 billion parameters → can generate text in 46 natural languages and 13 programming languages.
📌Any individual or institution can use and build upon these large language models on a local machine or on a cloud provider → an attempt to democratize its use
📌It is the result of the largest collaboration of AI researchers ever involved in a single research project → +1000 researchers from 70+ countries and 250+ institutions
📌 Supported by institutions such as Centre national de la recherche scientifique, NVIDIA, GENCI, Microsoft.

Our female team keeps growing
💪 To give visibility is to empower 💪
🎉 This week we hit a milestone that we are thrilled to share with our community.
Our team is now 26% female 🙌 🙌 which is higher than the average in the #machinelearning field. We have a vibrant team of women coming from different backgrounds that keeps growing and growing.
Still, there is a long way to go 🛣
Beyond just numbers, at Marvik we are putting consistent efforts into bridging the gender gap. We have amazing career opportunities available to women in this exciting industry 🚀

No Language Left Behind
🏳 Another major milestone for #LargeLanguageModels 🏳
💡Meta AI’s No Language Left Behind (#NLLB200) initiative is an effort to develop high-quality machine translation capabilities for most of the world’s languages.
📌 The first of its kind to translate across 200 different languages.
📌 Achieves state-of-the-art quality, validated through extensive evaluations for each individual language.
📌 Created a new evaluation dataset (#FLORES-200) to measure the model’s performance and confirmed NLLB-200 exceeds the previous state of the art by around 44%.
📌 Open-sourced NLLB-200 models, datasets and code – everyone can now access to build on their work.
📌 Various findings of the projects are already being used to improve and extend translations on Facebook, Instagram, and Wikipedia

Uncertainty When Managing AI Projects
🚀 In our latest blog, our COO Gaston Arismendi discusses the art of mastering uncertainty when managing AI projects.
“Beyond being a newer industry and not having the same level of maturity as traditional software, what differentiates #AI as discipline could be pictured with only one word: uncertainty. This concept is present at many levels of an AI project.”

👉 At Marvik, we have dealt with #aiprojects across several industries. DM or reach out to [email protected] if you are curious about how we deal with this uncertainty so as to deliver high quality results to our clients.
