Model overview

The bloomz-7b1 is a large language model developed by the BigScience research workshop. It is part of the BLOOMZ and mT0 model family, which are capable of following human instructions in dozens of languages zero-shot. The model was created by fine-tuning the BLOOM and mT5 pre-trained multilingual language models on the xP3 crosslingual task mixture dataset. This resulted in a model that can generalize to unseen tasks and languages.

Model inputs and outputs

The bloomz-7b1 model is a text-to-text transformer that can take natural language prompts as input and generate coherent text responses. It has been trained on a vast multilingual dataset spanning 46 natural languages and 13 programming languages. The model can understand both the languages used in pre-training as well as the additional languages introduced during fine-tuning.

Inputs

  • Natural language prompts in a variety of languages, including instructions, questions, and open-ended text generation tasks.

Outputs

  • Fluent text responses in the same languages as the input prompts, demonstrating the model's ability to understand and generate content across many languages.

Capabilities

The bloomz-7b1 model has shown strong zero-shot performance on a wide range of tasks, including translation, question answering, and few-shot learning. It can be prompted to perform tasks it was not explicitly trained for by framing them as text generation problems. For example, the model can be asked to "Translate to English: Je taime" and generate the response "I love you."

What can I use it for?

The bloomz-7b1 model is well-suited for research and exploration of large language models, particularly in the areas of multilingual and crosslingual learning. Developers and researchers can use the model as a foundation for building applications that require natural language understanding and generation in multiple languages. Some potential use cases include:

  • Building multilingual chatbots and virtual assistants
  • Developing crosslingual information retrieval and question answering systems
  • Exploring the capabilities and limitations of zero-shot learning in language models

Things to try

One interesting aspect of the bloomz-7b1 model is its ability to understand and generate text in dozens of languages. Experiment with prompting the model in different languages to see how it responds. You can also try providing the model with more context about the desired language or task, such as "Explain in Telugu what is backpropagation in neural networks."

Another area to explore is the model's performance on specific downstream tasks. The paper accompanying the model release provides some initial zero-shot evaluation results, but there may be opportunities to fine-tune or adapt the model for more specialized applications.

The bloomz model is a family of multilingual language models trained by the BigScience workshop. It is based on the BLOOM model and fine-tuned on the cross-lingual task mixture (xP3) dataset, giving it the capability to follow human instructions in dozens of languages without additional training. The model comes in a range of sizes, from 300M to 176B parameters, allowing users to choose the appropriate size for their needs. The bloomz-mt variants are further fine-tuned on the xP3mt dataset and are recommended for prompting in non-English languages. The bloomz model is similar to other large language models like BELLE-7B-2M, which is also based on Bloomz-7b1-mt and fine-tuned on Chinese and English data. Another related model is xlm-roberta-base, a multilingual version of RoBERTa pre-trained on 100 languages. Model inputs and outputs Inputs Prompts**: The bloomz model takes natural language prompts as input, which can be in any of the supported languages. Outputs Generated text**: The model outputs generated text that responds to the input prompt, following the instructions provided. The output can be in the same language as the input or in a different supported language. Capabilities The bloomz model is capable of understanding and generating text in dozens of languages, including both high-resource and low-resource languages. It can follow a wide range of instructions, such as translation, question answering, and task completion, without additional fine-tuning. This makes it a versatile tool for multilingual natural language processing tasks. What can I use it for? The bloomz model can be used for a variety of multilingual natural language processing tasks, such as: Machine translation**: Use the model to translate text between different languages. Question answering**: Ask the model questions and have it provide relevant answers. Task completion**: Give the model instructions for a task, and have it generate the required output. Text generation**: Use the model to generate coherent and contextually appropriate text. The different model sizes available allow users to choose the appropriate model for their needs, balancing performance and resource requirements. Things to try One interesting aspect of the bloomz model is its ability to generalize across languages. Try providing prompts in different languages and observe how the model responds. You can also experiment with mixing languages within a single prompt to see how the model handles code-switching. Additionally, the bloomz-mt variants may be particularly useful for applications where the input or output language is not English. Explore the performance of these models on non-English tasks and compare them to the original bloomz versions.

The bloomz-560m model is part of the BLOOMZ & mT0 family of models developed by the BigScience workshop. These models are capable of following human instructions in dozens of languages zero-shot by finetuning the BLOOM and mT5 pretrained multilingual language models on the BigScience team's crosslingual task mixture dataset (xP3). The resulting models demonstrate strong crosslingual generalization abilities to unseen tasks and languages. The bloomz-560m model in particular is a 560M parameter version of the BLOOMZ model, recommended for prompting in English. Similar models in the BLOOMZ & mT0 family include smaller and larger versions ranging from 300M to 176B parameters, as well as models finetuned on the xP3mt dataset for prompting in non-English languages. Model inputs and outputs Inputs Natural language prompts describing a desired task or output Instructions can be provided in any of the 46 languages the model was trained on Outputs Coherent text outputs continuing or completing the provided prompt Outputs can be in any of the model's supported languages Capabilities The bloomz-560m model can be used to perform a wide variety of natural language generation tasks, from translation to creative writing to question answering. For example, given the prompt "Translate to English: Je t'aime", the model is likely to respond with "I love you." Other potential prompts include suggesting related search terms, writing a story, or explaining a technical concept in another language. What can I use it for? The bloomz-560m model is well-suited for research, education, and open-ended language exploration. Researchers could use the model to study zero-shot learning and cross-lingual generalization, while educators could leverage it to create multilingual learning materials. Developers may find the model useful as a base for fine-tuning on specific downstream tasks. Things to try One interesting aspect of the BLOOMZ models is the importance of clear prompting. The performance can vary depending on how the input is phrased - it's important to make it clear when the input stops to avoid the model trying to continue the prompt. For example, the prompt "Translate to English: Je t'aime" without a full stop at the end may result in the model continuing the French sentence. Better prompts include adding a period, or explicitly stating "Translation:". Providing additional context, like specifying the desired output language, can also improve the model's performance.
