This model is a Norwegian variant of Meta-Llama-3-8B, fine-tuned on a carefully selected mix of Norwegian instruction pairs. The model is tuned to understand and generate text in Norwegain.

Intended Use

This model is free to use for personal and research use. However a commercial license is required for commerical applications. This model can be used as an assistant-like chat. Try it out :)

Prompt Template

Du er NorskGPT ....<|im_end|>
Hei, hva kan jeg hjelpe deg med?<|im_end|>

Sample script

from transformers import AutoModelForCausalLM, AutoTokenizer

device = "cuda" # the device to load the model onto

model_name = "bineric/NorskGPT-Llama3-8b"
model = AutoModelForCausalLM.from_pretrained(model_name)
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name)

messages = [
    {"role": "user", "content": "Du er NorskGPT - en AI bot som hjelper brukeren med å svare på spørsmål?"},
    {"role": "assistant", "content": "Hei, jeg er NorskGPT, hva kan jeg hjelpe deg med?"},
    {"role": "user", "content": "Fortell meg om Oslo"}

encodeds = tokenizer.apply_chat_template(messages, return_tensors="pt")

model_inputs = encodeds.to(device)

generated_ids = model.generate(model_inputs, max_new_tokens=1000, do_sample=True)
decoded = tokenizer.batch_decode(generated_ids)


  • This is an LLM, not a knowledge model. It can not be expected to have more information about Norway than the base model.
  • It will generally preform better on tasks that involves summarization, question answering and chat, than on tasks that requires more knowledge about Norway, specific domains, or tasks where the model can answer freely.
  • The model is released as is, and would in most cases need prompt tuning to achieve optimal results.
