Open-Assistant SFT-4 12B Model

This is the 4th iteration English supervised-fine-tuning (SFT) model of the Open-Assistant project. It is based on a Pythia 12B that was fine-tuned on human demonstrations of assistant conversations collected through the https://open-assistant.io/ human feedback web app before March 25, 2023.

Model Details


Two special tokens are used to mark the beginning of user and assistant turns: <|prompter|> and <|assistant|>. Each turn ends with a <|endoftext|> token.

Input prompt example:

<|prompter|>What is a meme, and what's the history behind this word?<|endoftext|><|assistant|>

The input ends with the <|assistant|> token to signal that the model should start generating the assistant reply.
