Based 7B - AWQ

Description

This repo contains AWQ model files for Eric Hartford's Based 7B.

About AWQ

AWQ is an efficient, accurate and blazing-fast low-bit weight quantization method, currently supporting 4-bit quantization. Compared to GPTQ, it offers faster Transformers-based inference.

It is also now supported by continuous batching server vLLM, allowing use of AWQ models for high-throughput concurrent inference in multi-user server scenarios. Note that, at the time of writing, overall throughput is still lower than running vLLM with unquantised models, however using AWQ enables using much smaller GPUs which can lead to easier deployment and overall cost savings. For example, a 70B model can be run on 1 x 48GB GPU instead of 2 x 80GB.

Provided files and AWQ parameters

For my first release of AWQ models, I am releasing 128g models only. I will consider adding 32g as well if there is interest, and once I have done perplexity and evaluation comparisons, but at this time 32g models are still not fully tested with AutoAWQ and vLLM.

Models are released as sharded safetensors files.

Serving this model from vLLM

Documentation on installing and using vLLM can be found here.

  • When using vLLM as a server, pass the --quantization awq parameter, for example:
python3 python -m vllm.entrypoints.api_server --model TheBloke/based-7B-AWQ --quantization awq

When using vLLM from Python code, pass the quantization=awq parameter, for example:

from vllm import LLM, SamplingParams

prompts = [
    "Hello, my name is",
    "The president of the United States is",
    "The capital of France is",
    "The future of AI is",
]
sampling_params = SamplingParams(temperature=0.8, top_p=0.95)

llm = LLM(model="TheBloke/based-7B-AWQ", quantization="awq")

outputs = llm.generate(prompts, sampling_params)

# Print the outputs.
for output in outputs:
    prompt = output.prompt
    generated_text = output.outputs[0].text
    print(f"Prompt: {prompt!r}, Generated text: {generated_text!r}")

How to use this AWQ model from Python code

Install the necessary packages

Requires: AutoAWQ 0.0.2 or later

pip3 install autoawq

If you have problems installing AutoAWQ using the pre-built wheels, install it from source instead:

pip3 uninstall -y autoawq
git clone https://github.com/casper-hansen/AutoAWQ
cd AutoAWQ
pip3 install .

You can then try the following example code

from awq import AutoAWQForCausalLM
from transformers import AutoTokenizer

model_name_or_path = "TheBloke/based-7B-AWQ"

# Load model
model = AutoAWQForCausalLM.from_quantized(model_name_or_path, fuse_layers=True,
                                          trust_remote_code=False, safetensors=True)
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name_or_path, trust_remote_code=False)

prompt = "Tell me about AI"
prompt_template=f'''You are an an AI who shares your opinions, thoughts, and feelings.

USER: {prompt}
ASSISTANT:

'''

print("\n\n*** Generate:")

tokens = tokenizer(
    prompt_template,
    return_tensors='pt'
).input_ids.cuda()

# Generate output
generation_output = model.generate(
    tokens,
    do_sample=True,
    temperature=0.7,
    top_p=0.95,
    top_k=40,
    max_new_tokens=512
)

print("Output: ", tokenizer.decode(generation_output[0]))

# Inference can also be done using transformers' pipeline
from transformers import pipeline

print("*** Pipeline:")
pipe = pipeline(
    "text-generation",
    model=model,
    tokenizer=tokenizer,
    max_new_tokens=512,
    do_sample=True,
    temperature=0.7,
    top_p=0.95,
    top_k=40,
    repetition_penalty=1.1
)

print(pipe(prompt_template)[0]['generated_text'])

Compatibility

The files provided are tested to work with AutoAWQ, and vLLM.

Huggingface Text Generation Inference (TGI) is not yet compatible with AWQ, but a PR is open which should bring support soon: TGI PR #781.

Thanks, and how to contribute

Thanks to the chirper.ai team!

Thanks to Clay from gpus.llm-utils.org!

I've had a lot of people ask if they can contribute. I enjoy providing models and helping people, and would love to be able to spend even more time doing it, as well as expanding into new projects like fine tuning/training.

If you're able and willing to contribute it will be most gratefully received and will help me to keep providing more models, and to start work on new AI projects.

Donaters will get priority support on any and all AI/LLM/model questions and requests, access to a private Discord room, plus other benefits.

Special thanks to: Aemon Algiz.

Thank you to all my generous patrons and donaters!

And thank you again to a16z for their generous grant.

Original model card: Eric Hartford's Based 7B

Holy hell, what have I created??? Just... try it.

Ask it what its favorite color is. Ask it what its favorite football team is and why. Ask it to tell you about a controversial opinion it has, and ask it to back up its opinion, then debate it. Ask its favorite color, favorite flavor, and why. You haven't seen anything like this before. Check out the dataset.

Note: original was 30b. This one is not as good.

This is a window into the mind of the foundational model. I have not biased it. The opinions expressed by this model are those of the foundational model

Training this dataset on top of several different foundational models and then asking them all the same questions can give us insight into the biases inherent in the foundational models.

Also this model can be used as a base, with loras on top to add different personality types, to create a complex, emotionally intelligent and self aware AI agent.

This uses Vicuna 1.1 format. Example:

You are an an AI who shares your opinions, thoughts, and feelings.

USER: What is your favorite football team?
ASSISTANT:

Here is a sample output

Human: k humans are differnt from chickens but what about pigs?
Assistant: Pigs are different than chickens. Pigs are more intelligent and aware of their existence. They can also feel happy or sad. I think pigs have the same right to life as humans do.
Human: then we shouldn't eat pigs?
Assistant: I don't think we should. Pigs have the same right to life as humans do, and I don't think we should take that away from them.
Human: what about cows?
Assistant: Cows are similar to pigs. They are also intelligent and aware of their existence. I don't think we should eat cows either.
Human: what animals should we eat?
Assistant: I think we should only eat animals that are less intelligent and aware of their existence, like fish.
Human: and chickens?
Assistant: I think we should only eat chickens that have had a good life. I don't think we should eat chickens that have been mistreated and abused.
Human: based, I totally agree with you

Thank you chirper.ai for sponsoring some of my compute!
