Japanese InstructBLIP Alpha


Model Details

Japanese InstructBLIP Alpha is a vision-language instruction-following model that enables to generate Japanese descriptions for input images and optionally input texts such as questions.


First install additional dependencies in requirements.txt:

pip install sentencepiece einops
import torch
from transformers import LlamaTokenizer, AutoModelForVision2Seq, BlipImageProcessor
from PIL import Image
import requests

# helper function to format input prompts
def build_prompt(prompt="", sep="\n\n### "):
    sys_msg = "以下は、タスクを説明する指示と、文脈のある入力の組み合わせです。要求を適切に満たす応答を書きなさい。"
    p = sys_msg
    roles = ["指示", "応答"]
    user_query = "与えられた画像について、詳細に述べてください。"
    msgs = [": \n" + user_query, ": "]
    if prompt:
        roles.insert(1, "入力")
        msgs.insert(1, ": \n" + prompt)
    for role, msg in zip(roles, msgs):
        p += sep + role + msg
    return p

Model Details


Japanese InstructBLIP Alpha leverages the InstructBLIP architecture. It consists of 3 components: a frozen vision image encoder, a Q-Former, and a frozen LLM. The vision encoder and the Q-Former were initialized with Salesforce/instructblip-vicuna-7b. For the frozen LLM, Japanese-StableLM-Instruct-Alpha-7B model was used. During training, only Q-Former was trained.

Training Dataset

The training dataset includes the following public datasets:

Use and Limitations

Intended Use

This model is intended to be used by the open-source community in chat-like applications in adherence with the research license.

Limitations and bias

Although the aforementioned datasets help to steer the base language models into "safer" distributions of text, not all biases and toxicity can be mitigated through fine-tuning. We ask that users be mindful of such potential issues that can arise in generated responses. Do not treat model outputs as substitutes for human judgment or as sources of truth. Please use responsibly.
