AI Startup Beats Google’s PaLM 2 with New Large Language Model, Inflection-2

An AI startup called ASSISTANT, known for its mission to create “personal AI for everyone,” has announced a new large language model called Inflection-2 that surpasses Google’s PaLM 2.

Inflection-2 Achieves 1.025 Quadrillion Floating Point Operations (FLOPs)
Trained on Over 5,000 NVIDIA GPUs

Inflection-2 has been trained on over 5,000 NVIDIA GPUs to reach 1.025 quadrillion floating point operations (FLOPs), putting it in the same league as Google’s PaLM 2 Large.

Inflection-2 Outperforms on Reasoning Ability, Factual Knowledge, and Stylistic Prodigy
Exceeds PaLM 2 on Academic AI Benchmarks

On a range of common academic AI benchmarks, Inflection-2 achieved higher scores than PaLM 2 on most. This included outscoring the search giant’s flagship (Google’s) on the diverse Multi-task Middle-school Language Understanding (MMLU) tests, as well as TriviaQA, HellaSwag, and the Grade School Math (GSM8k) benchmarks.

The Future of Personal AI Assistant

Inflection’s new model will soon power its personal assistant app to enable more natural conversations and useful features.

Increased Efficiency with NVIDIA A100 to H100 GPUs Transition
Optimizations Reduce Costs Despite Larger Model

Inflection said its transition from NVIDIA A100 to H100 GPUs for inference – combined with optimization work – will increase serving speed and reduce costs despite Infraction-2 being much larger than its predecessor.

A Big Milestone Towards Fulfilling the Mission of Providing AI Assistants for All

An Inflection spokesperson said this latest model brings them “a big milestone closer” towards fulfilling the mission of providing AI assistants for all. They added the team is “already looking forward” to training even larger models on their 22,000 GPU supercluster.

Safety as Top Priority for Inflection Research Team
Inflection Among the First Signatories to the White House’s .NET Agreement

Safety is said to be a top priority for the researchers, with Inflection being one of the first signatories to the White House’s July 2023 . The company said its safety team continues working to ensure models are rigorously evaluated and rely on best practices for alignment.

New AI Model Challenges Google and Microsoft Dominance
The Race is On to Deliver the Next Generation of AI

With impressive benchmarks and plans to scale further, Inflection’s latest effort poses a serious challenge to tech giants like Google and Microsoft who have so far dominated the field of large language models. The race is on to deliver the next generation of AI.
