Even we here at Prompt Engineering were taken off guard and playing catch up. Let's get straight into it.

Stanford Introduces Alpaca 7B Model

This week started with Stanford introducing the Alpaca 7B model, a lightweight alternative to GPT-3. The model is trained on 52,000 instructions, making it more accessible and easier to run on local computers. Alpaca 7B performed almost as well as GPT-3 and ChatGPT while requiring significantly less computing power, democratizing the use of large language models.

This democratization of large language models means that soon, anyone will be able to run them on their systems, bringing the power of AI to the masses.

The Alpaca Model is built on Meta's (Facebook) recently released LLamA model. This is exactly what we hoped for. Read More Here
