Koala: A Dialogue Model for Academic Research

This repo contains the weights of the Koala 13B model produced at Berkeley. It is the result of combining the diffs from https://huggingface.co/young-geng/koala with the original Llama 13B model.

This version has then been converted to HF format.

My Koala repos

I have the following Koala model repositories available:

How the Koala delta weights were merged

The Koala delta weights were merged using the following commands:

git clone https://github.com/young-geng/EasyLM

git clone https://huggingface.co/TheBloke/llama-13b

mkdir koala_diffs && cd koala_diffs && wget https://huggingface.co/young-geng/koala/resolve/main/koala_13b_diff_v2

cd EasyLM

-m EasyLM.models.llama.convert_torch_to_easylm \
--checkpoint_dir=/content/llama-13b \
--output_file=/content/llama-13b-LM \

-m EasyLM.scripts.diff_checkpoint --recover_diff=True \
--load_base_checkpoint='params::/content/llama-13b-LM' \
--load_target_checkpoint='params::/content/koala_diffs/koala_13b_diff_v2' \
--output_file=/content/koala_13b.diff.weights \

-m EasyLM.models.llama.convert_easylm_to_hf --model_size=13b \
--output_dir=/content/koala-13B-HF \
--load_checkpoint='params::/content/koala_13b.diff.weights' \

Thanks, and how to contribute.

Thanks to the chirper.ai team!

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.
