Kaifu Lee AI Company responds to large model plagiarism: respects the feedback from the open source community and will update the code

According to the 21st Century Business Herald, recently, in response to the issue raised by the open source community Hugging Face that "except for the renaming of two tensors, the large model Yi completely uses the Llama architecture", Zero Yiwu responded:

"During a large number of training experiments, the code was renamed due to the need for experimental execution. We respected the feedback from the open source community and updated the code to better integrate into the Transformer ecosystem."

In early November, the AI ​​company "Zero Yiwu" founded by Sinovation Ventures Chairman and CEO Kai-fu Li officially released the open source large model "Yi".

The first public version of the Yi series basic model includes two models: Yi-6B (data parameter amount is 6 billion) and Yi-34B (34 billion).

At that time, regarding why he chose to build a large open source model, Kaifu Lee said, "The development of Zero One Thousand Things benefited from some of the collective wisdom of the previous open source community, which also made us obligated to make some contributions."

While the Agent intelligently plans the travel itinerary, it can also filter out the best travel flights and hotels, and automatically link them. Go to third-party ticket booking platforms and corporate reimbursement systems.

 Baidu Robin Li: The AI ​​native era requires millions of native applications instead of 100 large models

Yesterday, at the Xili Lake Forum, Baidu founder, chairman and CEO Robin Li pointed out that there are currently many large models in China, but there are very few AI native applications developed based on large models.

Robin Li believes that the sign of mankind entering the AI ​​era is not the production of many large models, but the production of many native AI applications.

The large model itself is a basic base, similar to an operating system, so ultimately developers have to rely on a small number of large models to develop a variety of native applications. Therefore, continuously and repeatedly developing basic large models is a huge waste of social resources.

In the AI ​​native era, we need 1 million AI native applications, but we don't need 100 large models.

Robin Li said that if our industrial policies can more encourage native AI applications based on large models, we will surely be able to build a prosperous AI ecosystem and promote a new round of economic growth.
