Strong candidates have emerged for industry adoption of open-source LLM models, and Giga ML provides a solution that enables enterprises to tailor and deploy LLMs securely on their own servers, avoiding the transmission of critical data to third-party servers. This method also offers unprecedented levels of efficiency and personalization.
The Giga ML platform allows businesses to pre-train and fine-tune a base model to meet their unique needs. Notably, Giga ML’s inference speed is 2.3 times faster, providing not only better performance but also significant savings.
The X1 Large 32k model is the flagship product of Giga ML. It is a pre-trained and highly refined version of the llama2 70B 4K model, designed to deliver enhanced performance and capabilities. Giga ML has already optimized the llama2 70B model to an 8k context length. This gives Giga ML a significant leg up in terms of potential and effectiveness.
The X1 Large 32k model not only succeeds in theory but also in practice, setting new standards for performance in the industry. With a score of 8.4 on the widely used MT Bench metric for LLMs, it sets a new record for performance. These successes represent a major step forward for on-premises LLM capabilities, changing the standards by which businesses judge performance and usefulness.
Since its debut, Giga ML has garnered significant interest from a wide variety of businesses, resulting in the creation of a waiting list. Particularly interested in Giga ML’s services are businesses in the medical, legal, and financial fields. Just 15 days after going live, the company’s website has become the fourth most popular among the S23 group of entrepreneurs from Y Combinator.
Incorporating safety features like role-based access and code generation to boost engineering team productivity, Giga ML’s platform is now being embraced by businesses for use cases like customer service and internal knowledge search. In the coming months, LLMs are expected to be implemented for nearly every function within enterprises, and the number of use cases is expected to grow.
Nexus Venture Partners’ Managing Director Abhishek Sharma is enthusiastic about the new cooperation with Giga ML, and he stressed the significance of safe LLM deployment in businesses. He highlighted existing difficulties, such as a lack of instrumentation and internal competence to install these models securely. The importance of Giga ML’s contribution to the open-source LLM ecosystem was emphasized by Garry Tan, CEO and President of Y Combinator, who believes that this will lead to a future of AI that is not reliant on giant tech companies.
