Free Dolly: Introducing the World's First Truly Open Instruction-Tuned LLM (via) Databricks released a large language model called Dolly a few weeks ago. They just released Dolly 2.0 and it is MUCH more interesting—it’s an instruction tuned 12B parameter upgrade of EleutherAI’s Pythia model. Unlike other recent instruction tuned models Databricks didn’t use a training set derived from GPT-3—instead, they recruited 5,000 employees to help put together 15,000 human-generated request/response pairs, which they have released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. The model itself is a 24GB download from Hugging Face—I’ve run it slowly on a small GPU-enabled Paperspace instance, but hopefully optimized ways to run it will emerge in short order.
