Last month, the Allen Institute for AI (AI2) announced the development of an open, state-of-the-art generative language model: AI2 OLMo (Open Language Model), developed in partnership with MosaicML, is expected in early 2024.
AI2 OLMo (Open Language Model) is planned for release in early 2024 and will be comparable in scale to other state-of-the-art large language models at 70B parameters. All elements of the OLMo project will be open sourced and accessible. The Allen Institute for AI plans to release the model, the training code, the training curves, and evaluation benchmarks. As well, AI2 will openly share and discuss the ethical and educational considerations around the creation of this model to help guide the understanding and responsible development of language modeling technology.

To develop this model, AI2 will be partnering with MosaicML and other organizations for data and training code. We have created an ethics review committee that includes both internal and external advisors to provide feedback throughout the process. The OLMo model and API will be a powerful new resource for the broader AI research community to better understand and participate in the generative AI revolution.
