Ferret – Apple has secretly made its large language model available for free. The company officially joins the AI ​​race


Ferret - Apple has secretly made its large language model available for free.  The company officially joins the AI ​​raceVirtually every large enterprise has already presented its large language model. Only Apple seemed to lag slightly behind in this regard. It turns out that this company has already developed its product, but the premiere took place “quietly”. The multimodal large language model (MLLM) called Ferret was made available in October 2023 and, interestingly, under an open-source license (which seems unlikely in the case of Apple).

Apple already has its own large language model called Ferret and is officially joining the ongoing artificial intelligence race. The novelty had its silent premiere in October 2023 and has only now been discovered.

It has been known for a long time that Apple is also developing its language model. However, what the company decided to do is very surprising. On October 11, 2023, the Ferret multimodal large language model appeared on the Internet. Apple decided to make the entire source code available, so we are dealing with Open Source software. The project has been found on GitHub along with installation instructions. It turns out that MLLM was trained using eight NVIDIA A100 units (80 GB HBM2e). However, it is worth mentioning that you cannot use Ferret for commercial purposes.

Its capabilities in analyzing and describing “smaller regions in images” are to be slightly better than in the case of GPT-4 (ChatGPT Plus), and at the same time the model is to be characterized by a less frequent occurrence of hallucinations. Although Apple is only taking its first steps in this field, the company has already presented several effects of its activities. It is clear that he is turning his attention to mobile devices. Not so long ago, plans were published for additional memory for smartphones and tablets, which would contain the language model. Ultimately, the company will strive to ensure that models such as Ferret can function locally on mobile devices. Already now, smartphones like Google Pixel 8 Pro can use integration with “artificial intelligence”. Next year, Samsung will join them with the S24 series, and other smartphone manufacturers are in the queue.
