Featured Models
Model Details Example Model Zoo
GPT-2 GPT-3 The GPT architecture uses autoregressive attention mechanisms to selectively focus on segments of input text it predicts to be the most relevant. GPT-2 has 1.5 billion parameters. The third-generation GPT-3 has variants ranging from 1.3B to 175B parameters. Changing between versions using CSoft merely requires changing a few configuration parameters. Cerebras-GPT family

GPT-J GPT-NeoX GPT-J and GPT-NeoX are open source language models, created by the research group EleutherAI. Two of the most advanced open source alternatives to OpenAI’s GPT-3, they have up to 6 billion and 20 billion parameters respectively. Harnessing GPT-J GPT-J Repo
BERT RoBERTa Bidirectional Transformers for Language Understanding (BERT) is an encoder-only transformer-based model designed for natural language understanding. RoBERTa is similar to BERT, but has architectural changes made to reduce pre-training time. Financial dataset

Epigenomic BERT
Transformer AIAYN T5 Transformer, also known as Attention is All you Need (AIAYN), started the current wave of transformer architectures. The Text-to-Text-Transfer-Transformer model (T5) expresses all NLP tasks into a unified text-to-text-format where the input and output are always text strings. T5 can be considered as a generalized extension of Transformer. T5 Repo

“We note that these training runs frequently take >1 week on dedicated GPU resources (such as Polaris@ALCF). To enable training of the larger models on the full sequence length (10,240 tokens), we leveraged AI-hardware accelerators such as Cerebras CS-2, both in a stand-alone mode and as an inter-connected cluster, and obtained GenSLMs that converge in less than a day.”

Award-winning research

2022 Gordon Bell Prize for COVID Research

A team led by researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and Cerebras was recognized  for developing the first genome-scale language model to study the evolutionary dynamics of SARS-CoV-2. Their work has the potential to transform how we identify and classify new and emergent variants of pandemic-causing viruses.

At Cerebras Systems, we love it when the CS-2 is vastly faster than large NVIDIA GPU clusters.
