Latest Developments 🌍
Microsoft’s Protein Generation Framework
Microsoft has opensourced EvoDiff, a general-purpose AI framework for protein generation, representing a significant leap toward sequence-first protein design, and opening new possibilities in the field of protein engineering.
EvoDiff simplifies protein design by generating diverse, high-fidelity proteins without the need for structural information.
The framework is based on a 640-million parameter model trained on data from various species and protein classes.
It can be used to create enzymes for therapeutics, drug delivery, and industrial chemical reactions.
Opensource Framework for Autonomous Language Agents 📜
‘Agents’ is an opensource framework for creating autonomous language agents that can perform various tasks and interact with humans and environments using natural language.
The framework integrates long-term and short-term memory components, enables agents to use external tools and navigate the web for gathering information, and allows multi-agent communication.
It offers user-friendly customization for even non-specialists to easily build and deploy advanced agents.
‘Agents’ offers precise control over agent behavior, making their actions more predictable and tunable.
A Picture-Perfect Way to Shop Online 📸
Amazon is all set to enhance the online search and discovery experience with AI advanced search and visualization features, besides autocomplete and suggestions.
Customers can now use visual search by snapping a picture and adding text to their queries.
The "View in Your Room" feature lets shoppers visualize how furniture and home décor will look in their space using augmented reality.
Amazon now displays product sales trend data, and offers a "Find-on-Amazon" feature for locating products seen elsewhere online.
European Defense AI Unicorn 🦄
European Defense AI startup Helsing, backed by Spotify founder Daniel Ek, secures a record-breaking $223 million in Series B funding at a valuation exceeding €1.7 billion, potentially making it the largest European AI company.
Helsing's AI platform focuses on enhancing defense and national security for liberal democracies by improving efficiency through live data utilization.
Daniel Ek pledged €1 billion of his personal fortune toward funding deep tech "moonshot projects" and invested €100 million in Helsing through his investment company.
Helsing has been expanding in Europe through collaborations with governments, including providing AI-enabled electronic warfare capabilities for the Eurofighter jet fighter and the AI backbone for the Future Combat Air System (FCAS) program.
High-Throughput with Near-Zero Memory Waste 🧹
Efficiently serving LLMs demands effective memory management, but current systems face issues with inefficiently handling the key-value cache (KV cache), resulting in fragmentation and limited batch sizes. Researchers propose PagedAttention approach to the problem.
PagedAttention, inspired by virtual memory and paging, optimizes KV cache memory allocation, eliminating fragmentation and redundancy.
vLLM, built on PagedAttention, achieves remarkable performance gains, outperforming state-of-the-art systems by 2-4x while supporting even the largest LLMs.
The solution promises to reduce the high costs associated with LLM processing and accelerate the deployment of applications like programming assistants and universal chatbots.
