LAION LeoLM: Linguistically Enhanced Open Language Model

Meet LeoLM, the first open and commercially available German Foundation Language Model built on Llama-2. Our models extend Llama-2's capabilities into German through continued pretraining on a large corpus of German-language and mostly locality specific text. Thanks to a compute grant at HessianAI's new supercomputer 42, we release two foundation models trained with 8k context length, LeoLM/leo-hessianai-7b and LeoLM/leo-hessianai-13b under the Llama-2 community license (70b also coming soon! 👀). With this release, we hope to bring a new wave of opportunities to German open-source and commercial LLM research and accelerate adoption. Read our blog post or our paper (preprint coming soon) for more details!

Chat Models

Today, the chat format is imperative for interacting with LLMs. Therefore, we also release a suite of finetuned models ready for you to interact with! We present, for each model size, both a German and a bilingual chat model. See the model page for more details on datasets and training parameters.
