This Machine Learning Study Tests the Transformer’s Ability of Length Generalization Using the Task of Addition of Two Integers

Transformer-based models have transformed the fields of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Natural Language Generation (NLG), demonstrating exceptional performance in a wide range of applications. The best examples of these are the recently introduced models Gemini by Google and GPT models by OpenAI. Several studies have shown that these models perform well in mathematical reasoning, code synthesis, and theorem-proving tasks, but they struggle with length generalization, which is the capacity to apply their knowledge to…

Researchers from the University of Washington Introduce Fiddler: A Resource-Efficient Inference Engine for LLMs with CPU-GPU Orchestration

Mixture-of-experts (MoE) models have revolutionized artificial intelligence by enabling the dynamic allocation of tasks to specialized components within larger models. However, a major challenge in adopting MoE models is their deployment in environments with limited computational resources. The vast size of these models often surpasses the memory capabilities of standard GPUs, restricting their use in low-resource settings. This limitation hampers the models’ effectiveness and challenges researchers and developers aiming to leverage MoE models for complex…

Can We Drastically Reduce AI Training Costs? This AI Paper from MIT, Princeton, and Together AI Unveils How BitDelta Achieves Groundbreaking Efficiency in Machine Learning

Training Large Language Models (LLMs) involves two main phases: pre-training on extensive datasets and fine-tuning for specific tasks. While pre-training requires significant computational resources, fine-tuning adds comparatively less new information to the model, making it more compressible. This pretrain-finetune paradigm has greatly advanced machine learning, allowing LLMs to excel in various tasks and adapt to individual needs, promising a future with highly specialized models tailored to specific requirements. Various quantization techniques, such as rescaling activations,…
