Model Details


Training Dataset:

SauerkrautLM-SOLAR-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.

We improved the German language skills on this model. Nevertheless, certain formulations may occur that are not entirely correct.

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 this model as target model and upstage/SOLAR-10.7B-Instruct-v1.0 as reference model. 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.

### User:
Hello, how are you?

### Assistant:
Hi there! I am an AI language model, so I don't have personal feelings or emotions in the traditional sense. However, I can assure you that my systems and processes are functioning well at this moment, allowing me to provide helpful responses for your queries.
How may I assist you today?
