Introducing StableL: Stability AI’s Open Source GPT-Like Model

StableLM, the new large language model suite by Stability AI, is now available in “alpha” on GitHub and Hugging Face. This open-source offering from the parent company of Stable Diffusion is set to revolutionize natural language processing applications.

Under the permissive license, developers have unrestricted access to commercial and research activities regarding inspecting and utilizing the models.

Despite its more modest size of 3 to 7 billion parameters (with 15 to 65B parameter models on the way), the suite is crafted to generate text and code quickly and efficiently, similar to ChatGPT, in comparison with GPT -3’s 175 billion.

The Pile, an open-source dataset, has been enlarged and implemented by an AI company. However, the possibility of toxicity and hallucinations in the models remains under wraps. The expansive content that this dataset carries poses a risk of profanity.

The new release includes instructional fine-tuned research models composed of open-source datasets such as Stanford’s Alpaca, GPT4All, Databricks’ Dolly, ShareGPT, and HH. All of these have been combined to form the setting for this release.

Alpaca’s noncommercial CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license is the basis for licenses granted to models designed strictly for research purposes. These models are permitted for noncommercial use only and must adhere to the terms of Alpaca’s license.

Last year, the Emad Mostaque-run company made its text-to-image AI available through a public demo, a software beta, and a full model download, allowing users to experiment with the tool and develop various integrations.

The release of Meta’s open-source LLaMa language model has led to its swift and extensive adaptation by the public. This same trend is expected to be observed with StableLM as well.

Stability AI released its models amidst criticism by certain researchers concerned with the possibility of use in unlawful acts. Despite this, Stability AI still believes transparency and open sourcing-are pivotal to advancing technology, consequently upholding this posture.

The release of StableLM represents a significant contribution to the open-source AI community and a promising step forward for the development of AI technology. With more researchers and developers able to access and experiment with these advanced language models, the potential for breakthroughs and advancements in the field is greater than ever.
