  • Apple Researchers Propose KV-Runahead: An Efficient Parallel LLM Inference Technique to Minimize the Time-to-First-Token

           Large language models (LLMs), particularly Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) models, have demonstrated strong performance across various language tasks. However, challenges persist in their decoder architecture, Specifically in time-to-first-token (TTFT) and time-per-output token (TPOT). TTFT, reliant on extensive user context, and TPOT, for rapid subsequent token generation, have spurred research into memory-bound solutions like sparsification…

  • Meta says AI-generated election content is not happening at a “systemic level”

           Meta has seen strikingly little AI-generated misinformation around the 2024 elections despite there having been major elections in countries such as Indonesia, Taiwan, and Bangladesh, said the company’s president of global affairs Nick Clegg on Wednesday.  “The interesting thing so far — I stress, so far— is not how much, but how little AI-generated…

  • A community collaboration for progress
