Latest Developments 🌍
The Compact Marvel Model 🦸
Cerebras Systems introduces Bittensor Language Model, called BTLM-3B-8K, a 3 billion parameter open-source language model. It outperforms all existing 3B parameter models by 2-5.5% across downstream tasks and is even competitive with some 7B parameter models.
BTLM-3B-8K demands only 3GB of memory with 4-bit precision and requires 2.5 times less inference compute than 7B models.
The model has a similar architecture to GPT-3, with some changes, and was trained on the SlimPajama dataset from Cerebras. It excels in handling long context with up to 8,192 context length.
Despite being trained on 627B tokens, significantly less than other 3B and 7B parameter models, it outperforms 3B models with a significant margin across all benchmarks, and performs comparably with 7B models in tasks like common sense reasoning and reading comprehension.
Microsoft’s AI Keyboard ⌨️
Microsoft updates its SwiftKey mobile keyboard app with new AI-driven features to enhance user experience on iOS and Android.
SwiftKey introduces lenses and effects, bolstered by a partnership with Snapchat's Snap, offering over 250 tools and filters for personalized content creation.
Utilizing Bing’s Image Creator, users can design AI stickers from their photos or selfies, sharable on popular chat platforms.
Aimed at refining user writing, AI-Powered Editor provides real-time grammar, spelling, and punctuation corrections and suggestions directly in the app.
Meta’s Chatbots of the Next Gen 🕺
In a bid to engage younger users, Meta is set to unveil "Gen AI Personas," a collection of chatbots, during its Meta Connect event this week.
Meta's plan includes developing a variety of chatbot personalities, from a "sassy robot" inspired by Futurama to inquisitive ones like "Alvin the Alien," catering to different user preferences.
Celebrities will soon have the option to create their chatbots for fan interactions, expanding the potential for personalized engagement.
Meta is simultaneously working on a powerful large language model to compete with GPT-4, and they aim to enhance their Horizon Worlds avatars. These efforts align with their broader vision of the metaverse and extended user engagement.
