Meet Phind-70B: An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Model that Closes Execution Speed and the Code Generation Quality Gap with GPT-4 Turbo

The field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is significantly pushing the envelope of technology, thanks to the amazing capabilities of Large Language Models (LLMs). These models based on Natural Language Processing, Understanding, and Generation have demonstrated exceptional skills and potential in almost every industry.  

In recent research, a new development has emerged that can greatly improve the coding experiences of developers across the globe. A team of researchers has released Phind-70B, a state-of-the-art AI model with the goal of closing the execution speed and code quality gap with respect to its predecessors, including the well-known GPT-4 Turbo.

Phind-70B  has been built upon the CodeLlama-70B model as a basis and has undergone considerable refinement with 50 billion extra tokens. After a thorough development process, the team has shared that the model can provide excellent answers on technical topics while operating at an unparalleled pace of up to 80 tokens per second. With this development, coders can get instant feedback.

Beyond its speed, the Phind-70B can generate complicated code sequences and understand deeper contexts with the help of its 32K token context window. This characteristic greatly enhances the model’s capacity to offer thorough and pertinent coding solutions. When it comes to performance measures, Phind-70B has shown impressive results. 

The team has shared that in the HumanEval benchmark, Phind-70B has shown better performance than GPT-4 Turbo, achieving 82.3% as opposed to 81.1% for GPT-4 Turbo. On Meta’s CRUXEval dataset, it scored 59% compared to 62%, which is a tiny loss behind GPT-4 Turbo, but it’s crucial to remember that these benchmarks do not really reflect the model’s effectiveness in practical applications. Phind-70B excels in real-world workloads, demonstrating exceptional code generation skills and a willingness to produce thorough code samples without reluctance.

Phind-70B’s amazing performance is mostly due to its speed, which is four times faster than the GPT-4 Turbo. The team has shared that Phind-70B has utilized the TensorRT-LLM library from NVIDIA on the newest H100 GPUs, which allowed for a significant increase in efficiency and improvement in the model’s inference performance.

The team has partnered with cloud partners SF Compute and AWS, which ensured the best infrastructure for training and deploying Phind-70B. To enable more people to have access to the product, Phind-70B has offered a free trial that doesn’t require a login. A Phind Pro subscription has been offered for those looking for even more features and limits, providing an even more comprehensive coding aid experience.

The Phind-70B development team has shared that the weights for the Phind-34B model will soon be made public, and there are plans to eventually publish the weights of the Phind-70B model as well, further fostering a culture of cooperation and creativity.

In conclusion, Phind-70B is a great example of innovation, promising to improve the developer experience with a combination of unrivaled speed and code quality. In terms of improving the effectiveness, accessibility, and impact of AI-assisted coding, Phind-70B is a big step forward.
