Falcon LLM

Falcon LLM is TII's flagship series of large language models, built from scratch using a custom data pipeline and distributed training library. Papers coming soon 😊.

To promote collaborations and drive innovation, we have open-sourced a number of artefacts:

  • The Falcon-180B pretrained and chat models, under the Falcon-180B TII license. Falcon-180B is the largest and most powerful open-access model available.
  • The Falcon-7/40B pretrained and instruct models, under the Apache 2.0 software license . Falcon-7B/40B models are state-of-the-art for their size, outperforming other open-source models on NLP benchmarks.
  • The RefinedWeb dataset, a massive web dataset with stringent filtering and large-scale deduplication, enabling models trained on web data alone to match or outperform models trained on curated corpora. See πŸ““ the paper for more information. RefinedWeb is licensed under ODC-By 1.0.

See below for a detailed list of artefacts in the Falcon LLM family:
