On Sept. 7, 2023 IBM announced plans for new generative AI foundation models and enhancements coming to watsonx – its AI and data platform with a set of AI capabilities designed to help enterprises scale and accelerate the impact of AI. These enhancements include a technical preview for watsonx.governance, new generative AI data services coming to watsonx.data, and the planned integration of watsonx.ai foundation models across select software and infrastructure products.
Developers will be able to get their hands on many of these new capabilities and models September 11-14 at TechXchange, IBM’s premier technical learning event in Las Vegas.
The new IBM and third-party generative AI models coming to watsonx.ai include:
- Granite series models: IBM plans to introduce its Granite series models later this month. The Granite models use the “Decoder” architecture, which underpins the ability of today’s large language models (LLMs) to predict the next word in a sequence, and can support enterprise NLP tasks, such as summarization, content generation and insight extraction. IBM plans to provide a list of the sources of data as well as a description of the data processing and filtering steps that were performed to produce the training data for the Granite series of models. (Planned availability Q3 2023)
- Third-party models: IBM is now offering Meta’s Llama 2-chat 70 billion parameter model and the StarCoder LLM for code generation in watsonx.ai on IBM Cloud. (Available now)
