Stability AI Unveils Revolutionary Japanese Language Model Alpha: The Dawn of a New Era in Japanese AI Technology

As Seen On

Introducing the dawn of a new era in Japanese AI technology, Stability AI has recently unveiled its most advanced offering, the Japanese Language Model Alpha, fondly known as Japanese StableLM Alpha. This flagship model, backed by extensive benchmark testing, is being heralded as the most advanced publicly available model tailored specifically for Japanese speakers.

Clocking in a remarkable 7 billion parameters, Japanese StableLM Alpha is an enormous model, characterized by its versatility and prowess in conducting various linguistic tasks. From comprehending complex phrases to understanding intricate nuances, this model is poised to revolutionize how AI interacts with Japanese and English text. The world is also preparing for the imminent release of Japanese StableLM Base Alpha 7B, the commercial version of this sophisticated model. Licensed under Apache License 2.0, the upcoming version boasts of a robust foundation built upon an unrivalled dataset of 750 billion tokens of combined Japanese and English text.

The journey towards building this groundbreaking model was not undertaken single-handedly. The instrumental role played by the EleutherAI Polyglot project’s Japanese team cannot be understated. Working tirelessly to weave this AI magic, they employed Stability AI’s GPT-NeoX software to engineer the technology, underpinning this powerful language model.

We step forward into a trailblazing frontier of AI research with the introduction of Japanese StableLM Instruct Alpha 7B. This one-of-a-kind AI model has been exquisitely crafted to follow user instructions, a characteristic incorporated using a method known as Supervised Fine-tuning (SFT) utlilised across multiple open datasets.

In order to ensure precision and peak performance, models underwent rigorous evaluation through EleutherAI’s Language Model Evaluation Harness. This evaluation matrix incorporated diverse methods such as sentence classification, sentence pair classification, question answering, and sentence summarization. The scores from these rigorous methods were consolidated to reveal an impressive average of 54.71%, positioning Japanese StableLM Alpha above its contenders.

In an interesting twist of fate, the timing of the launch coincided with SoftBank’s recent announcement of veering its focus towards the development of Large Language Models (LLMs) for the Japanese market. SoftBank’s investment for this venture is a whopping 20 billion JPY, which is over $140 million. This further fuels the speculation over the transformative potential of AI technology in the Japanese landscape.

The potential impact of these revolutionary models in Japan’s AI-scape is undeniable. Looking ahead, the Japanese StableLM Alpha, with its unmatched technological sophistication, is set to open up a new epoch in the regions’ AI dynamic while becoming a key player in transforming human-AI interactions.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
