About PaLM 2
Google has introduced PaLM 2, a state-of-the-art language model that builds upon the company’s previous work in AI and foundation models. This new model is designed to bring transformative uses in a variety of areas, including healthcare and human creativity.
Key Features of PaLM 2
- Multilinguality: PaLM 2 has been trained on multilingual text from over 100 languages, significantly improving its ability to understand, generate, and translate nuanced text across a wide variety of languages. It can even pass advanced language proficiency exams at the “mastery” level.
- Reasoning: The model’s dataset includes scientific papers and web pages containing mathematical expressions, enabling it to demonstrate improved capabilities in logic, common sense reasoning, and mathematics.
- Versatility: PaLM 2 is not only more capable but also faster and more efficient than previous models. It comes in a variety of sizes (Gecko, Otter, Bison, and Unicorn), making it easy to deploy for a wide range of use cases. The smallest model, Gecko, is lightweight enough to work on mobile devices and fast enough for interactive applications on-device, even when offline.
