GPT-J 6B - Dolly_Shygmalion-6b-Dev_V8P2 Mix

Model description

This is a merged model, using a weighted parameter blend strategy at a (20:20:60) ratio between the models:

By their respective authors.

Warning: Dolly_Shygmalion-6b-Dev_V8P2 may generate NSFW or inappropriate content due to the base models (Mainly Pygmalion/Pygmalion-6b V8P2) being trained on general user logs, and internet archives.

Intended Use:

Research purposes only, intended for responsible use. Express a conversation in natural language, and Dolly_Shygmalion will pick up on the conversational format. Try starting a two line prompt such as:

Bot: "Hello, how are you?"
You: "I am doing just fine, thank you."

Or any other topic, and the model will carry on in this back and forth style.


For more details, check out the related source models, especially Pygmalion/Pygmalion-6b V8P2 for more information on how to utilize the chat bot formatting expected.

In a similar manner to fine-tuning, merging weights does not add information but transforms it, therefore it is important to consider trade-offs. Dolly_Shygmalion-6b-Dev_V8P2 combines Dolly-GPT-J, Shinen-6b and Pygmalion-6b V8P2; all three models were blended in a two step process using a simple weighted parameter method

(X*A + Y*B)

With X & Y being the model weighs, and A/B being how strongly they are represented within the final value. The intent of this is to elevate the end-model by borrowing the strongly represented aspects out of each base model, but may also weaken other faces of each model, which can be desirable if the base models have problematic traits that need to be worked on.

Blend was done in FP32 and output saved in FP16 for reduced storage needs.

Limitations and biases

Based on known problems with NLP technology, potential relevant factors include bias (gender, profession, race and religion).

Warning: This model has a moderate NSFW bias.
