Two New Open LLM Models

Just one week after unveiling the cutting-edge Gemini models, Google is back with an exciting announcement: Gemma! These brand-new lightweight open-weight models, including Gemma 2B and Gemma 7B, take inspiration from Gemini and are ready to revolutionize both commercial and research endeavours.

While Google hasn’t dished out a detailed comparison with Meta and Mistral‘s counterparts, the hype around Gemma is real. These state-of-the-art dense decoder-only models, reminiscent of Gemini and PaLM architecture, are gearing up to storm the Hugging Face leaderboard.

They are calling all developers! Gemma is your ticket to innovation. With accessible Colab and Kaggle notebooks and seamless integrations with platforms like Hugging Face, MaxText, and Nvidia’s NeMo, the possibilities are endless. Once these models are pre-trained and fine-tuned, they’re ready to shine across diverse environments.

Google’s emphasis on Gemma’s openness is a game-changer. While they’re not open source, they’re part of the exclusive league of open models, allowing developers to leverage them for inference and fine-tuning under specific terms. It’s Google’s commitment to accessibility without compromising control.

According to Tris Warkentin, Google DeepMind’s product management director, the latest advancements in generation quality have levelled up smaller models like Gemma. From local deployment on developer machines to cloud environments like GCP with Cloud TPUs, the sky’s the limit for AI application development.

As Gemma steps into the spotlight, excitement brews about its real-world performance. Google’s not stopping there; they’re rolling out a responsible generative AI toolkit alongside Gemma, ensuring safe development and introducing a handy debugging tool for extra support.

Let’s unleash the power of Gemma and embark on a journey of innovation together!
