🌸 #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.Β 

🟒Main Takeaways: 

πŸ“ŒAn autoregressive Large Language Model (#LLM), trained to continue text from a prompt on extensive text data using industrial-scale computational resources.

πŸ“Œ176 billion parameters β†’ can generate text in 46 natural languages and 13 programming languages.

πŸ“ŒAny individual or institution can use and build upon these large language models on a local machine or on a cloud provider β†’ an attempt to democratize its use

πŸ“ŒIt is the result of the largest collaboration of AI researchers ever involved in a single research project β†’ +1000 researchers from 70+ countries and 250+ institutions

πŸ“Œ Supported by institutions such as Centre national de la recherche scientifique, NVIDIA, GENCI, Microsoft.

Our female team keeps growing

πŸ’ͺ To give visibility is to empower πŸ’ͺ

πŸŽ‰ This week we hit a milestone that we are thrilled to share with our community.

Our team is now 26% female πŸ™Œ πŸ™Œ 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.Β 

Still, there is a long way to go πŸ›£

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 πŸš€

No Language Left Behind

🏳 Another major milestone for #LargeLanguageModels 🏳

πŸ’‘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.Β 

🟒 Highlights:

πŸ“Œ The first of its kind to translate across 200 different languages.

πŸ“Œ Achieves state-of-the-art quality, validated through extensive evaluations for each individual language.

πŸ“Œ 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%.

πŸ“Œ Open-sourced NLLB-200 models, datasets and code – everyone can now access to build on their work.Β 

πŸ“Œ Various findings of the projects are already being used to improve and extend translations on Facebook, Instagram, and Wikipedia

Uncertainty When Managing AI Projects

πŸš€ In our latest blog, our COO Gaston Arismendi discusses the art of mastering uncertainty when managing AI projects.Β 

β€œBeyond 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.” 

πŸ‘‰ Visit our blog for the full storyΒ 

πŸ‘‰ 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.Β
