Turing-NLG: A 17-billion-parameter language model by Microsoft - Microsoft Research
This figure was adapted from a similar image published in DistilBERT. Turing Natural Language Generation (T-NLG) is a 17 billion parameter language model by Microsoft that outperforms the state of the art on many downstream NLP tasks. We present a demo of the model, including its freeform generation…
