Apple introduces eight open source language models, OpenELM, that run directly on devices. Large language models are ready for use by developers on the Hugging Face Hub.

Apple has introduced eight open source language models, called the OpenELM models (Open-source Efficient Language Models). What makes them special is that they run directly on the device and not on cloud servers. These large language models are ready for developers to use and can be downloaded from the Hugging Face Hub. Four of the OpenELM models were trained using the CoreNet library.

CoreNet is a recently launched library by Apple for training deep neural networks and OpenELM, which is considered a state-of-the-art language model family. The other four language models are instructional models and can therefore understand and interpret input that is formulated as direct instructions. The models and the complete training and evaluation framework are available on public datasets.

This means there are training protocols, multiple checkpoints and pre-training configurations. Developers can access it via Hugging Face, the AI code sharing community. The hub site is becoming increasingly popular and already has more than 350 thousand models, 75 thousand datasets and 150 thousand demo applications.

All are Open Source and are intended to promote collaboration and progress in the machine learning sector. According to Apple, the OpenELM models are released to enrich the open research community by building large-scale language models. Open source AI technology can minimize risks, data and model biases.

CEO Tim Cook said in February that generative AI features would come to Apple devices this year. The new AI functions are not yet installed on iPhones, Macbooks, and Co. However, iOS 18 is said to include several new AI features. According to Bloomberg's Apple Chief Correspondent Mark Gurman, the AI features in iOS 18 will primarily be driven by a large language model directly on the device.

This is intended to provide better data protection and higher speed. On June 10 at WWDC, Apple will unveil the new version of the iOS 18 operating system and other software upgrades.
