Microsoft Launches Phi-3, Its Smallest AI Model Yet

Microsoft joins the lightweight LLM race with the Phi-3 Mini, a 3.8 billion parameter model designed for on-device performance. Trained on a curated dataset (think quality over quantity compared to GPT-4), Phi-3 targets resource-constrained scenarios and low-latency applications. Its training dataset, an expanded version of Phi-2's, includes heavily filtered web data and synthetic data, ensuring robustness, safety, and chat format optimization.

This is just the first glimpse of the Phi-3 family, with Phi-3 Small (7B) and Phi-3 Medium (14B) on the horizon.

Phi-3 Mini punches above its weight, rivaling models ten times its size in performance. The Phi-3-Mini achieves impressive results (69% on MMLU comprehension and 8.38 on MT benchmarks) while running locally on smartphones with a memory footprint quantized to 4 bits and occupying around 1.8GB of memory. It dives into the sub-4B parameter LLM market enabling on-device AI and faster dev cycles.

These smaller, efficiently trained models pave the way for future personalized AI experiences directly on devices. Notable examples include EleutherAI's open-sourced GPT-Neo with 2.7 billion parameters, Google's Gemma 2B, and Huawei's TinyBERT.

Google releases New Free Resources to Help You Optimize Your AI Prompts

Google released a blog series and an ebook, Prompting guide 101 to improve user experience with AI chatbots. The resources focus on effective prompt design for generative AI models like Google's Gemini.

A well-structured prompt considers four key elements: persona (information requester), task (desired action), context (additional details), and format (output structure).

The "Prompting guide 101" ebook offers general prompting advice and role-specific prompts for marketing, customer service, and other professions. These resources aim to enhance user ability to leverage AI chatbots across various platforms. Read more.

Adobe’s latest AI Image Generator Is Now Free

Adobe's latest AI model, Firefly 3, is now accessible via the Firefly web app, offering enhanced accuracy and photorealistic results. Forget app hopping - this update seamlessly integrates full AI image generation within Photoshop thanks to Firefly 3.

Users can now whip up hyper-realistic visuals directly using text prompts or pre-trained settings. This injects serious creative firepower, leveraging Photoshop's massive toolbox (70+ tools) for fine-tuning.

New features like Reference Image and Generate Background push the creative envelope further, making marketing asset creation a breeze. Ethical AI stays a focus, with training on licensed datasets and IP indemnification for generated content. Read more.

The Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses Have Multimodal AI Now

The Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses just got a serious upgrade, following a successful early access program. Unlike the ill-fated Humane AI Pin, Meta's AI assistant shows real promise in the wearables market.

Users can now initiate commands with a simple "Hey Meta, look and..." to perform tasks like identifying objects or translating languages on the fly. Despite occasional imperfections, the AI proves practical for everyday usage, particularly outdoors.

The AI complements other features like live streaming and POV camera capabilities. While there are still occasional quirks to iron out, the addition of multimodal AI brings significant value to this already impressive product. Read more.
