OpenAI’s latest offering, GPT-4 Turbo, is making waves in the world of artificial intelligence. The powerful language model is currently leading a competition among 20 other large models. While OpenAI paved the way for generative AI tools with ChatGPT last year, organizations now have a plethora of options to choose from.
Designing an effective testing mechanism to find the ideal model can be a daunting task. According to the Large Model Systems Organization, benchmarking these large language models is particularly challenging due to the open-ended nature of the problems they tackle. It is difficult to create an automated program that can accurately evaluate the quality of responses. Thus, human evaluation based on pairwise comparison becomes necessary.
When evaluating models for implementation, technology leaders prioritize reliability, performance, security, and compatibility with their existing tech stack. However, recent changes in some of OpenAI’s models’ behavior present a unique challenge. CIOs must ensure proper model management to detect any changes that could impact operations and user experience.
Fortunately, vendors also have a part to play in this process. James Zou, an assistant professor at Stanford University, suggests that vendors should provide more checkpoints of their models. This way, if there are any changes or drifts in behavior, companies can fallback to previous versions for added protection.
One example of such a system is Sidekick, a machine learning-powered platform developed in-house that is currently live in 600 stores. This platform demonstrates the potential impact and applicability of AI technologies across various industries.
As businesses grapple with technological decisions amid volatile market conditions, CIOs are facing a busy year ahead. It’s crucial for them to stay up-to-date with industry news and trends to make informed choices about their company’s technology strategy.
