Stability AI has introduced StableLM, a new open-source language model with Alpha versions available in 3 billion and 7 billion parameters. This model continues the company’s commitment to making AI technology accessible, following the public release of Stable Diffusion in 2022. StableLM is trained on an experimental dataset based on The Pile, with 1.5 trillion tokens, resulting in high performance in conversational and coding tasks. The release also includes research models that are fine-tuned for instructional use, utilizing a combination of five open-source datasets. While the base models are available under the CC BY-SA-4.0 license, the fine-tuned models are released under a noncommercial CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license.
