CoreWeave partners with EleutherAI & NovelAI to make open-source AI more accessible

EleutherAI’s GPT-NeoX-20B and GooseAI’s NLP-as-a-Service deliver a massive step forward for large language models on top of CoreWeave Cloud.

Springfield, New Jersey – February 2, 2022 – CoreWeave, a specialized cloud provider built for GPU-accelerated workloads, today announced the release of the largest publicly available language model in partnership with EleutherAI, a grassroots collective of researchers working to open source AI research. The model - GPT-NeoX-20B - was trained by EleutherAI on CoreWeave’s state-of-the-art NVIDIA A100 training cluster and is set to provide businesses and researchers alike with access to build innovative products, applications, and advance scientific research. 

Effective today, GPT-NeoX-20B is available on GooseAI, a fully managed inference service delivered by API, prior to a full open-source release next week. With feature parity to other well known APIs, GooseAI delivers a plug-and-play solution for serving open source language models at over 70% cost savings by simply changing 2 lines of code. GooseAI is also being released today as a joint venture between CoreWeave and partner Anlatan - the creators of NovelAI.

At 20 billion parameters, GPT-NeoX-20B is a powerhouse that was trained on EleutherAI’s curated collection of datasets, The Pile. This was the same dataset used to train well-known models like Beijing Academy of Artificial Intelligence’s Wu Dao (1.75T parameters, multimodal), AI21’s Jurassic-1 (178B parameters), Anthropic’s language assistant (52B parameters), and Microsoft and NVIDIA’s Megatron-Turing NLG (340B parameters). GPT-NeoX-20B is a glimpse into the next generation of what open-sourced AI systems could look like. EleutherAI hopes to remove the current barriers to research on the understanding and safety of such powerful models.
