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!

Model Details

Use in 🤗Transformers

First install direct dependencies:

pip install transformers torch sentencepiece

If you want faster inference using flash-attention2, you need to install these dependencies:

pip install packaging ninja
pip install flash-attn==v2.1.1 --no-build-isolation
pip install git+https://github.com/HazyResearch/flash-attention.git@v2.1.1#subdirectory=csrc/rotary

Then load the model in transformers:

from transformers import AutoModelForCausalLM, AutoTokenizer
import torch

model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(
    trust_remote_code=True  # True for flash-attn2 else False
