Falcon LLM: A Top-Performing, Open-Source Large Language Model by TII

The United Arab Emirates’ Technology Innovation Institute (TII) has recently unveiled the Falcon LLM, a groundbreaking open-source large language model with an impressive 40 billion parameters. As a global research center, TII is committed to delivering transformative technologies and advancing knowledge across various sectors. The Falcon-40B model has achieved top-ranking in the public Hugging Face Open LLM leaderboard, matching the performance of other high-performing large language models.

Falcon LLM Offers Cost-Effective, Top-Notch Performance

Trained on a staggering 1 trillion tokens, Falcon LLM provides exceptional performance while remaining exceptionally cost-effective. The model is available in two sizes, Falcon-40B and Falcon-7B, giving users the opportunity to choose the size that suits their needs. Developed with data preprocessing and model training jobs on Amazon SageMaker, Falcon LLM has proven to outperform renowned models such as LLaMA-65B, StableLM, RedPajama, and MPT on Hugging Face’s public leaderboard.

Model Weights, Customization and Deployment Made Easy

Users can access Falcon LLM model weights for download, inspection, and deployment in a variety of scenarios. The open-source nature of Falcon-40B enables the customization of AI tools that cater to specific needs, ensuring seamless data integration and preservation.

Amazon SageMaker JumpStart: A Hub for Falcon LLMs

Falcon LLMs will also be available via Amazon SageMaker JumpStart, a central hub featuring pre-trained models, built-in algorithms, and pre-built solution templates. Deployment and usage of Falcon LLMs are accessible through just a few clicks in SageMaker Studio or programmatically via SageMaker Python SDK. For more detailed information on deployment and running inference, refer to the “Introduction to SageMaker JumpStart – Text Generation with Falcon LLMs.”

Driving AI Advancements with Falcon-40B

According to Dr. Ebtesam Almazrouei, Executive Director and Acting Chief AI Researcher at TII, the Falcon-40B model “surpasses renowned models, demonstrating exceptional performance without specialized fine-tuning.” The open-source release of Falcon-40B grants researchers, businesses, and organizations the opportunity to harness its powerful capabilities across numerous sectors. As a result, these groups are empowered to leverage Falcon-40B’s exceptional capabilities and drive AI-driven advancements in various industries.

The development and release of Falcon LLM signify a significant milestone in TII’s unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of AI innovation. By open-sourcing Falcon-40B, TII presents a powerful and cost-effective large language model that organizations and researchers can build upon, driving AI advancements further than ever before. With its impressive performance and accessibility, the future of AI looks brighter and more transformative than ever.

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!
