Thanks, and how to contribute.

Thanks to the team!

I've had a lot of people ask if they can contribute. I enjoy providing models and helping people, and would love to be able to spend even more time doing it, as well as expanding into new projects like fine tuning/training.

If you're able and willing to contribute it will be most gratefully received and will help me to keep providing more models, and to start work on new AI projects.

Donaters will get priority support on any and all AI/LLM/model questions and requests, access to a private Discord room, plus other benefits.

A preliminary evaluation of the model quality is conducted by creating a set of 80 diverse questions and utilizing GPT-4 to judge the model outputs. See for more details.

Major updates of weights v1.1

  • Refactor the tokenization and separator. In Vicuna v1.1, the separator has been changed from "###" to the EOS token "</s>". This change makes it easier to determine the generation stop criteria and enables better compatibility with other libraries.
  • Fix the supervised fine-tuning loss computation for better model quality.
