Meet OpenChatKit: The Open Source Alternative to ChatGPT
The framework was created by the collaboration of Togeter, LAION, and Ontocord.
The world of foundation models is incubating a battle between open-source vs. API-based delivery models. In the text-to-image space, this is represented by the friction between open-source releases like Stable Diffusion and API-based models like DALL-E. In the universe of large language models(LLMs) API based products such as ChatGPT have dominated the headlines. Recently, open-source AI champions Together, Ontocord, and LAION collaborated to release OpenChatKit, an open-source alternative to ChatGPT with a comparable set of capabilities.
