WizardLM: An Efficient and Effective Model for Complex Question-Answering

WizardLM is a large-scale language model based on the GPT-3 architecture, trained on diverse sources of text, such as books, web pages, and scientific articles. It is designed for complex question-answering tasks and has been shown to outperform existing models on several benchmarks.

The model is available in various sizes, ranging from the smallest version, with 125M parameters, to the largest version, with 13B parameters. Additionally, the model is available in quantised versions, which offer improved VRAM efficiency without sacrificing accuracy. The latest version of WizardLM uses llama.cpp's new 5-bit quantisation methods q5_0 and q5_1, making it the most VRAM efficient model with the best results so far. However, users should be aware that these new methods only work with the latest llama.cpp code and are not currently compatible with third-party UIs/utilities.

Users can access WizardLM on Hugging Face, where it is available in various versions and sizes, including the latest version with the new quantisation methods. Additionally, a demo is available on the WizardLM GitHub repository, which allows users to test the model's capabilities on various prompts.

The model has impressed many with its ability to accurately answer complex questions, all while never running out of VRAM even on high-end GPUs like the RTX 3080Ti. One user reported running the Oobabooga version, wizardLM-7B-GPTQ-4bit-128g.ooba.no-act-order.pt, at pre_layer 25, but noted that it was still VRAM-efficient enough to run without this parameter. However, some users have reported slow performance and poor outputs, despite running the 4-bit version. This may be due to compatibility issues with older GPUs, as one user inquired if their Nvidia 1080, with 8GB of VRAM, would be compatible.

In conclusion, WizardLM is an impressive model for complex question-answering that offers efficient and effective performance on high-end GPUs. Users should be aware of compatibility issues and the need for the latest llama.cpp code to run the latest quantisation methods.

Automated Reasoning with Language Models

Automated reasoning with language models is a fascinating field that can test reasoning skills. Recently, a model named Supercot showed accidental proficiency in prose/story creation. However, it's essential to use original riddles or modify existing ones to ensure that the models are reasoning and not merely spewing out existing knowledge on the web.

Several models have been tested in a series of reasoning tasks, and Vicuna-1.1-Free-V4.3-13B-ggml-q5_1 has been tested among others. It performed well, except for two coding points. Koala performed slightly better … click here to read

Improving Llama.cpp Model Output for Agent Environment with WizardLM and Mixed-Quantization Models

Llama.cpp is a powerful tool for generating natural language responses in an agent environment. One way to speed up the generation process is to save the prompt ingestion stage to cache using the --session parameter and giving each prompt its own session name. Furthermore, using the impressive and fast WizardLM 7b (q5_1) and comparing its results with other new fine tunes like TheBloke/wizard-vicuna-13B-GGML could also be useful, especially when prompt-tuning. Additionally, adding the llama.cpp parameter --mirostat has been … click here to read

Extending Context Size in Language Models

Language models have revolutionized the way we interact with artificial intelligence systems. However, one of the challenges faced is the limited context size that affects the model's understanding and response capabilities.

In the realm of natural language processing, attention matrices play a crucial role in determining the influence of each token within a given context. This cross-correlation matrix, often represented as an NxN matrix, affects the overall model size and performance.

Building Language Models for Low-Resource Languages

As the capabilities of language models continue to advance, it is conceivable that "one-size-fits-all" model will remain as the main paradigm. For instance, given the vast number of languages worldwide, many of which are low-resource, the prevalent practice is to pretrain a single model on multiple languages. In this paper, the researchers introduce the Sabiá: Portuguese Large Language Models and demonstrate that monolingual pretraining on the target language significantly improves models already extensively trained on diverse corpora.
