馃殌 Falcon-QAMaster

Falcon-7b-QueAns is a chatbot-like model for Question and Answering. It was built by fine-tuning Falcon-7B on the SQuAD, Adversarial_qa, Trimpixel (Self-Made) datasets. This repo only includes the QLoRA adapters from fine-tuning with 馃's peft package.

Model Summary

  • Model Type: Causal decoder-only
  • Language(s): English
  • Base Model: Falcon-7B (License: Apache 2.0)
  • Dataset: SQuAD (License: cc-by-4.0), Adversarial_qa (License: cc-by-sa-4.0), Falcon-RefinedWeb (odc-by), Trimpixel (Self-Made)
  • License(s): Apache 2.0 inherited from "Base Model" and "Dataset"

Why use Falcon-7B?

  • It outperforms comparable open-source models (e.g., MPT-7B, StableLM, RedPajama etc.), thanks to being trained on 1,500B tokens of RefinedWeb enhanced with curated corpora. See the OpenLLM Leaderboard.
  • It features an architecture optimized for inference, with FlashAttention (Dao et al., 2022) and multiquery (Shazeer et al., 2019).
  • It is made available under a permissive Apache 2.0 license allowing for commercial use, without any royalties or restrictions.

鈿狅笍 This is a finetuned version for specifically question and answering. If you are looking for a version better suited to taking generic instructions in a chat format, we recommend taking a look at Falcon-7B-Instruct.

Model Details

The model was fine-tuned in 4-bit precision using 馃 peft adapters, transformers, and bitsandbytes. Training relied on a method called "Low Rank Adapters" (LoRA), specifically the QLoRA variant. The run took approximately 12 hours and was executed on a workstation with a single T4 NVIDIA GPU with 25 GB of available memory. See attached [Colab Notebook] used to train the model.
