Mistral AI is Making Generative AI Fun!
One company that is at the forefront of this emerging technology is Mistral AI. It is a French startup that is developing improved models of generative AI for businesses by combining scientific excellence, an open-source approach and a socially responsible vision of technology. In fact, at Mistral AI, the focus is on an open approach to generative AI based on community-backed model development.
In September 2023, Mistral AI released its first generative AI model, dubbed Mistral 7B, a small-sized model with 7 billion parameters. However, it has outperformed every currently available open-source model, even those with up to 13 billion parameters on standard English and code benchmarks. Want to learn more about Mistral AI and how it is making generative AI fun?
Do you remember Scooby-Doo, the classic cartoon series about a group of friends and their talking dog who solved mysteries? The show is known for its humor, spooky mysteries and its iconic characters. Yet, what if Scooby-Doo was actually a Generative AI model? What if it could be used to create new and even more mysterious and hilarious mysteries? #MakingGenAIFun
That is quite similar to what Mistral AI is doing! The French startup is developing unique generative AI models for businesses – such as its flagship AI model, the Mistral 7B. This model is incredibly efficient, making it possible to run generative AI tasks on a wide range of hardware, including laptops and GPUs. Mistral AI's model is based on transformer architecture, a type of neural network that is well-suited for tasks such as machine translation and text summarization. Such models can learn long-range dependencies in data, making them ideal for generating text and code. This makes GenAI models accessible to a much wider range of users than other open-source generative AI models currently do.
Imagine Mistral 7B is trained on a dataset of previous Scooby-Doo episodes; it could then generate completely original hilarious mysteries, or to create a new, realistic Scooby-Doo video game. Mistral 7B can also be leveraged to generate the dialogue for the characters in the Scooby-Doo video game, or its game environment! These are just a few ideas for how Mistral 7B could be used to generate new video content, game assets and dialogues. The possibilities are endless.
If that’s not fun generative AI, we don’t know what is!
Mistral 7B will be used by several businesses to generate educational content and innovative AI-driven applications. Yet, how does Mistral 7B stand apart?
What Makes Mistral AI Different?
Several things make Mistral AI’s technology unique. First of all, Mistral AI is committed to the open-source approach. Every model developed by Mistral AI is released under an open-source license, which means that anyone can use and modify them freely.
Secondly, Mistral AI is focused on developing models that are efficient and accessible. Mistral AI's models, such as the Mistral 7B, are trained on a variety of different datasets, including text, code and images. This makes them more versatile and adaptable than other models, often trained on a single data type.
Finally, Mistral AI is committed to developing generative AI models that can be used for social good. Mistral AI believes that generative AI has the potential to solve some of the world's most pressing problems, such as climate change and poverty. This is reflected in the performance of its model, Mistral 7B.
When compared to a wide range of benchmarks, the performance of Mistral 7B and different Llama (Large Language Model Meta AI) models shows that Mistral 7B significantly outperforms Llama 2 13B on all metrics. It is however on par with Llama 34B and is vastly superior in code and reasoning benchmarks.
Note: Since Llama 2 34B was not released to the public, Mistral reported results on Llama 34B.
Moreover, the resulting model, Mistral 7B Instruct, a Large Language Model (LLM) created as a fine-tuned version of the Mistral-7B-v0.1 generative text model using a variety of publicly available conversation datasets, outperforms all 7 billion parameter models on MT-Bench and is comparable to 13B chat models. The ranking of Mistral 7B Instruct is shown below:
Yet, the question remains: how is Mistral AI making Gen AI fun?
Mistral AI Is Making Generative AI Fun!
Mistral AI is reshaping generative AI in several ways. Firstly, Mistral AI's models are very easy to use, as they provide a variety of tutorials and documentation to help users get started with their models. This means generative AI is no longer limited to experts and AI professionals.
Secondly, Mistral AI’s models are very powerful and can be used to generate a wide range of synthetic content, including text, code, images, and music. This gives users a lot of freedom to experiment and create new things.
Finally, Mistral AI is committed to building a community around generative AI and regularly hosts events and workshops to help people learn about generative AI. Yes, Mistral AI truly has a unique outlook towards generative AI.
Here are a few examples of how Mistral AI is benefitting users while making GenAI fun!
Mistral AI can be used to generate code in a variety of programming languages, including Python, Java, and C++. This can be a huge time-saver for developers, especially those working on that new Scooby-Doo video game!
Mistral AI can be used to generate text in a variety of formats, including articles, blog posts, and poems. This can be a great way to creatively explore content generation, for instance, to generate scripts for new Scooby-Doo episodes!
Mistral AI can be used to generate images from text descriptions. This can be a great way to create illustrations for your stories or to generate new marketing images for a product such as the Scooby Snack!
Mistral AI can be used to generate music in a variety of genres and can be a great way to express your creativity in creating new soundtracks for your videos or games. Imagine the new Scooby-Doo episodes with even spookier sound effects!
That’s how Mistral AI is making waves in the Generative AI industry. It is making GenAI fun and accessible to everyone, with its easy-to-use, powerful, accessible and efficient model, the Mistral 7B. What’s more – Mistral AI is also committed to open-source and to building a community around generative AI!
Mistral AI says that Mistral 7B is only the first step towards building frontier models on their roadmap towards making generative AI fun and accessible to all. Yet, the Mistral 7B can already be used across many tasks: summarisation, structuration, text completion, code completion and question answering to name a few. Mistral AI’s model processes data and generates content faster than other open-source solutions while running at a fraction of their costs.
So, if you are a fan of Scooby-Doo and mysteries, be sure to keep an eye on Mistral AI! You may find that the next great Scooby-Doo episode, video game, or story can be powered by Mistral 7B.
