Google Gemma open source AI prompt performance is slow and inaccurate

Google Gemma open source AI prompt performance is slow and inaccurate

Google has unveiled Gemma, a new open-source artificial intelligence model, marking a significant step in the tech giant’s AI development efforts. This model, which is available in two variants offering either 2 billion and 7 billion parameters AI models, is designed to rival the advanced AI technologies of competitors such as Meta. For those with a keen interest in the progression of AI, it’s crucial to grasp both the strengths and weaknesses of Gemma. Gemma is a family of lightweight, state-of-the-art open models built from the same research and technology used to create the Gemini models. Developed by Google DeepMind and other teams across Google, Gemma is inspired by Gemini, and the name reflects the Latin gemma, meaning “precious stone.”  Gemma is an evolution of Google’s Gemini models, which suggests it is built on a robust technological base. Gemma AI models provide a choice between 7B parameters, for efficient deployment and development on consumer-size GPU and TPU and 2B versions for CPU and on-device applications. Both come in base and instruction-tuned variants. However, the sheer …

AnyGPT any-to-any open source multimodal LLM

AnyGPT any-to-any open source multimodal LLM

AnyGPT is an innovative multimodal large language model (LLM) is capable of understanding and generating content across various data types, including speech, text, images, and music. This model is designed to adapt to different modalities without significant modifications to its architecture or training methods. The any-to-any open source multimodal LLM can be trained stably without any alterations to the current large language model (LLM) architecture or training paradigms. Instead, it relies exclusively on data-level preprocessing, facilitating the seamless integration of new modalities into LLMs, akin to the incorporation of new languages. We build a multimodal text-centric dataset for multimodal alignment pre-training. It utilizes discrete sequence modeling to process and comprehend diverse information in a structured manner. This versatile tool is capturing the attention of developers and researchers alike, as it offers a glimpse into a future where AI can seamlessly engage with us across multiple senses. AnyGPT’s unique approach lies in its discrete sequence modeling technique, which breaks down complex information into smaller, more manageable pieces called tokens. This allows the model to process a …

Commentary: Crucial to secure Singapore’s main revenue source, given little leeway for more GST or wealth taxes

Commentary: Crucial to secure Singapore’s main revenue source, given little leeway for more GST or wealth taxes

On Friday, Mr Wong announced Singapore will go ahead with plans to implement two components of Pillar Two from Jan 1, 2025. Pillar Two establishes a global floor on corporate tax for large MNE groups – with global annual revenue of at least €750 million euros (US$808 million) – with a 15 per cent minimum effective tax rate regardless of where they operate. The first component – the Income Inclusion Rule (IIR) – means MNE groups parented in Singapore will have their overseas profits subjected to the 15 per cent minimum effective tax rate here, even if they operate overseas. The second component – the Domestic Top-up Tax (DTT) – applies to MNE groups operating in Singapore that are parented elsewhere. Instead of paying the 15 per cent minimum effective tax rate in their parent jurisdictions, they will pay any top-up tax in Singapore. So long as the affected MNE groups stay put in Singapore, there should be additional revenue in the short term. CUSHIONING THE IMPACT OF HIGHER CORPORATE TAX RATES But it will …

In the 1887 essay “Silent People as Misjudged by the Noisy,” an Atlantic contributor proposed an economical approach to talking: “As we get on in life past the period of obstreperous youth, we incline to talk less and write less, especially on the topics which we have most at heart,” the writer noted. “We are beginning to realize the uselessness of perpetually talking … If there is a thing to be said, we prefer to wait and say it only when and where it will hit something or somebody.” Many of us wish we were better at waiting to speak until we knew our words would “hit something or somebody” exactly how we want them to.
