Model Details


Training Dataset:

SauerkrautLM-Mixtral-8x7B-Instruct was trained with mix of German data augmentation and translated data. Aligned through DPO with our new German SauerkrautLM-DPO dataset based on parts of the SFT SauerkrautLM dataset as chosen answers and Sauerkraut-7b-HerO as rejected answers. Added with additional translated Parts of the HuggingFaceH4/ultrafeedback_binarized (Our dataset do not contain any TruthfulQA prompts - check Data Contamination Test Results) and argilla/distilabel-math-preference-dpo.
We found, that only a simple translation of training data can lead to unnatural German phrasings. Data augmentation techniques were used to grant grammatical, syntactical correctness and a more natural German wording in our training data.

Data Contamination Test Results

Some models on the HuggingFace leaderboard had problems with wrong data getting mixed in. We checked our SauerkrautLM-DPO dataset with a special test [1] on a smaller model for this problem. The HuggingFace team used the same methods [2, 3].

Our results, with result < 0.1, %: being well below 0.9, indicate that our dataset is free from contamination.

The data contamination test results of HellaSwag and Winograde will be added once [1] supports them.
