Unlock the Power of Small Language Model Phi-2 for Chat, Research, Coding, and More

This week’s model release features the NVIDIA-optimized language model Phi-2, which can be used for a wide range of natural language processing (NLP) tasks. You can experience Phi-2 directly from your browser.

NVIDIA AI Foundation Models and Endpoints are a curated set of community and NVIDIA-built generative AI models to experience, customize, and deploy in enterprise applications. Try leading models such as Nemotron-3, Mixtral 8x7B, Llama 2 70B, and Stable Diffusion XL in the NVIDIA AI Playground.  

When AI models are ready to deploy for business operations, enterprise support is essential. NVIDIA AI Enterprise provides the security, support, stability, and manageability to improve productivity of AI teams, reduce total cost of AI infrastructure, and ensure a smooth transition from POC to production. 

What is Phi-2?

Phi-2 is a small language model (SLM) with 2.7 billion parameters developed by Microsoft Research. It showcases state-of-the-art performance in common-sense reasoning and language understanding and outperforms larger models on various benchmarks.

The model is trained using textbook-quality data and carefully selected web data, making it an efficient alternative to larger language models. Phi-2 is designed to be more portable and can be used both in the cloud and on-premises, offering a promising solution for various AI applications.

The advantages of Phi-2 over other language models include its cost-effectiveness, performance, portability, and reduced power and computing requirements.

Phi-2 can be used for a wide range of NLP tasks, including but not limited to research, customized applications, chat functionality, and tasks involving language understanding, math, and coding.

Get started with Phi-2

NVIDIA has optimized Phi-2, which you can experience directly from your browser using a simple user interface through the NVIDIA NGC catalog.

Visit the Phi-2 playground, type in your prompts, and see the results generated from the models running on a fully accelerated stack. 

You can also use the API to test the model. Sign in to the NGC catalog, then access NVIDIA cloud credits to experience the models at scale by connecting your application to the API endpoint.
