Falcon LLM is a large language model (LLM) with 40 billion parameters that can generate natural language and code. It was developed by Technology Innovation Institute (TII) in Abu Dhabi and is open-sourced under the Apache License Version 2.0. Falcon LLM can be used for various tasks such as chatbots, content creation, language translation, and sentiment analysis. It is one of the most efficient and powerful LLMs in the world, outperforming GPT-3 and other state-of-the-art models on several benchmarks.

How It Works

Falcon is a massive decoder-only model with 40 billion parameters that can generate text autoregressively. It was trained on 1 trillion tokens using 384 GPUs on AWS for two months.
The pretraining data for Falcon came from public web crawls that were filtered, deduplicated, and cleaned to remove machine-generated text and adult content. The resulting pretraining dataset had almost five trillion tokens.
This dataset was supplemented with selected sources such as academic papers and social media conversations to diversify Falcon AI skills.
Finally, Falcon’s performance was evaluated on open-source benchmarks such as EAI Harness, HELM, and BigBench.
