SOTA Speech and Text Translation

PLUS: GPT 3.5 turbo finetuning and open source vision-language model.

Hello folks, here’s what we have today;

Our picks


SeamlessM4T - The first, all-in-one, multimodal translation model from Meta. The model supports nearly 100 languages for input (speech + text), 100 languages for text output and 35 languages (plus English) for speech output. It outperforms Whisper on the benchmarks and is available for download on Github.


GPT-3.5 Turbo fine-tuning and API updates. Open AI has finally made fine-tuning with GPT 3.5 Turbo available, with the GPT-4 fine-tuning coming in a few months. Plus, OpenAI is changing the API endpoint for old GPT-3 models with the previous endpoint deprecating on January 4th, 2024.


IDEFICS - An open-access reproduction of Flamingo. Flamingo is the SOTA vision-language model from Deepmind. The team at Hugging Face has made a replication of it using Llama v1 and CLIP. IDEFICS is comparable in performance with the original closed-source Flamingo model across various image-text understanding benchmarks.


Visualising AI - A unique project from Deepmind with 13 artists coming together to create artworks about AI.
