What happened: Microsoft has announced Phi-3, a new family of open-source small language models (SLMs) that punch well above their weight class in terms of capabilities.

Despite their tiny size, the Phi-3 SLMs can handle complex language tasks, coding, math and more while requiring significantly less computing power than large models.

The Phi-3 family overcomes previous limitations of SLMs to enable new AI use cases like:

  • On-device deployments for mobile, IoT, edge with low latency and data privacy

  • Cost-effective, localized AI for businesses with limited cloud resources

  • Quickly building and iterating on custom AI assistants, chatbots, automations

  • Hybrid architectures combining SLMs and large models for optimized performance

Key advantages of the Phi-3 SLMs include:

  • Faster speeds

  • Lower compute requirements

  • Ability to run offline/locally without cloud connectivity,

  • and easier customization for specific use cases.

Microsoft is open-sourcing the Phi-3 models across cloud platforms to drive accessibility.

What happened: Apple has released OpenELM, a series of four ultra-compact language models ranging from 270M to 3B parameters, hinting at the company's strategy for bringing generative AI to its devices.

The open-source OpenELM (Open-source Efficient Language Models) are designed to run tasks like email writing extremely efficiently on-device:

How you can take advantage of it: You can leverage OpenELM to create applications or tech services that are fully functional offline.

This is particularly beneficial for services in regions with poor internet infrastructure or for professionals who need to operate in remote areas, like field researchers, emergency responders, and frequent travelers.

What happened: Adobe has launched the Firefly Image 3 Foundation Model, marking a significant upgrade in its suite of AI-driven creative tools. This latest model, unveiled at MAX London, is now available in beta and features major advancements aimed at enhancing photorealistic quality and expanding creative capabilities.

Some key enhancements include:

  • An all-new auto-stylization engine that enables more personalized and higher-quality creative outputs.

  • Structure and Style Reference capabilities, allowing users to generate images that closely match reference materials.

  • Significant improvements in text rendering and scene comprehension, making it ideal for complex and detailed creative tasks.

Apply it: For creative professionals and businesses, Firefly Image 3 offers tools to push the boundaries of digital art and design, enabling faster production and more intricate visual content for your ad or marketing campaigns.
