Model Card for Aya-23-8B

Try Aya 23

You can try out Aya 23 (35B) before downloading the weights in our hosted Hugging Face Space here.

Model Summary

Aya 23 is an open weights research release of an instruction fine-tuned model with highly advanced multilingual capabilities. Aya 23 focuses on pairing a highly performant pre-trained Command family of models with the recently released Aya Collection. The result is a powerful multilingual large language model serving 23 languages.

This model card corresponds to the 8-billion version of the Aya 23 model. We also released a 35-billion version which you can find here.

We cover 23 languages: Arabic, Chinese (simplified & traditional), Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese

Usage

Please install transformers from the source repository that includes the necessary changes for this model

# pip install transformers==4.41.1
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForCausalLM

model_id = "CohereForAI/aya-23-8B"
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_id)
model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(model_id)

# Format message with the command-r-plus chat template
messages = [{"role": "user", "content": "Anneme onu ne kadar sevdiğimi anlatan bir mektup yaz"}]
input_ids = tokenizer.apply_chat_template(messages, tokenize=True, add_generation_prompt=True, return_tensors="pt")
## <BOS_TOKEN><|START_OF_TURN_TOKEN|><|USER_TOKEN|>Anneme onu ne kadar sevdiğimi anlatan bir mektup yaz<|END_OF_TURN_TOKEN|><|START_OF_TURN_TOKEN|><|CHATBOT_TOKEN|>

gen_tokens = model.generate(
    input_ids, 
    max_new_tokens=100, 
    do_sample=True, 
    temperature=0.3,
    )

gen_text = tokenizer.decode(gen_tokens[0])
print(gen_text)
