General Purpose Question-Answering with MACAW
« on: October 17, 2021, 05:18:13 am »
If you wanted a powerful artificial intelligence system to complete your pet project but don't have access to GPT3 then you're in luck because now there is MACAW which is fully open source and freely available. The largest model needs around 48GB of GPU memory to operate but there are some smaller models available too.

I first learned about it here:

https://www.reddit.com/r/LanguageTechnology/comments/q9qebq/allen_institute_for_ai_ai2_opensources_macaw_a/

The source code is here including some impressive examples of it in use:

The paper describing it in depth is here:

Has anyone here tried to actually use this on Google Cloud?

I was going to save this for when I had time to run some tests on it, but the 6-billion parameter GPT-J model is also now up with a public interface: https://6b.eleuther.ai/

On the GPT-J model public interface I tested with this, "Adam told a secret to Betty, then Betty told that to Charlie, then Charlie told that to Donna, then Donna told that to Edward, then Edward told that to Felisha, then  what was that?"  The results were surprising.
