Strange quirk: This model seems to need a context size of EXACTLY 4096 ONLY. I'm assuming this is a dares_ties effect?

Iambe-20b-DARE-v2

Description

Named after a charming daughter of Echo and Pan in Greek myth, Iambe-20b-DARE-v2 is an improved DARE merge building on my recent experiments.

Iambe is intended to have the best realistically possible understanding of anatomy and of a scene's state for a 20b merge, while remaining personable and authentic in "voice".

Update Methodology

Noromaid and the general "no-robots" vibe didn't come through like I'd hoped in v1. My hypothesis is that the "soul" MythoMax and Noromaid have is probably distributed widely over many low-value deltas, due to the "ephemeral" nature of such a thing.

My old base model was likely giving DARE conniption fits, so I replaced that with a truly vanilla 20b base model.

CleverGirl was updated to the DARE version, as Sir Hillary said, simply because it was there.

Without a large base of dare_ties models to compare to, I'm basically feeling my way through this intuitively, so here's to good results!

Model is too large to load in Inference API (serverless). To try the model, launch it on Inference Endpoints (dedicated) instead.
