Retentive Network: A Successor to Transformer for Large Language Models (Paper Explained)

This video is from Yannic Kilcher. Retention is an alternative to Attention in Transformers that can both be written in a parallel and in a recurrent fashion. This means the architecture achieves training parallelism while maintaining low-cost inference. Experiments in the paper look very promising. Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2307.08621

Promptbreeder: Self-Referential Self-Improvement Via Prompt Evolution (Paper Explained)

This video is from Yannic Kilcher. Promptbreeder is a self-improving self-referential system for automated prompt engineering. Give it a task description and a dataset, and it will automatically come up with appropriate prompts for the task. This is achieved by an evolutionary algorithm where not only the prompts, but also the mutation-prompts are improved over […]

LLaMA: Open and Efficient Foundation Language Models (Paper Explained)

Large Language Models (LLMs) are all the rage right now. ChatGPT is the LLM everyone talks about, but there are others. With the attention (and money) that OpenAI is getting, expect more of them. LLaMA is a series of large language models from 7B to 65B parameters, trained by Meta AI. They train for longer […]
