The Power of Combining Experts

Just like any other week these days, a new open-source model has come out.

But this time, it’s different.

Emulating one of the core features that turned OpenAI’s GPT-4 into the world’s most advanced model (with the excuse of Gemini Ultra), Mistral’s new model, Mixtral 8×7B, is the first open-source Sparse Mixture-of-Experts foundation model that is as impressive as it is highly performant, making it the best open-source model to date.

But it isn’t stopping there, as it is up to six times faster than models of its size, making it the best model in the world in terms of performance relative to cost and speed.

Europe seems to have found its AI champion, and today we are going to make sense of this engineering marvel.

Most insights I share in Medium have previously been shared in my weekly newsletter, TheTechOasis.
