🔥 News & Insights
Microsoft Research present Composable Diffusion (CoDi), a novel generative model capable of generating any combination of output modalities, such as language, image, video, or audio, from any combination of input modalities. Unlike existing generative AI systems, CoDi can generate multiple modalities in parallel and its input is not limited to a subset of modalities like text or image.[Details].
MoonlanderAI announced the alpha release of its generative AI platform for building immersive 3D games using text descriptions [Details].
Bark, text-to-audio model, is now live on Discord. Bark can generate highly realistic, multilingual speech as well as other audio - including music, background noise and laughing, sighing and crying sounds. [Details | GitHub].
OpenAI's Code Interpreter plugin, allowing ChatGPT to execute code and access uploaded files, will roll out to all ChatGPT Plus users within a week. It enables data analysis, chart creation, file editing, math calculations, and more [Twitter Link].
OpenAI announces general availability of GPT-4 API. Current API developers who have made successful payments can use it now, and new developers will have access by month's end [Details].
Microsoft AI presents LONGNET a Transformer variant that can scale the sequence length to 1 billion+ tokens without sacrificing performance on shorter sequences [Details].
A set of open-source LLM models, OpenLLMs, fine-tuned on only ~6K GPT-4 conversations, have achieved remarkable performance. Of these, OpenChat-13B, built upon LLAMA-13B, is at rank #1 of open-source models on AlpacaEval Leaderboard [GitHub |Huggingface| AlpacaEval].
