After being laid low by a sick child turning into a sick family, I’ve got a bunch of articles in the queue, and I hope to have another one up by the end of June/early July, probably about conditionally routed language models. The article that follows is a slight departure from my usual, more technical subject matter. Please let me know what you thought of it.
Outside these two categories of startups, there could be something in between, e.g., Lamini aims to offer easy-to-use parameter efficient fine tuning to their customers. So they are neither building foundation models nor are their products directly profitable.
