The AI Test Kitchen software, built by Google LLC, is now available to the public. This will allow users to experiment with cutting-edge neural networks created by Google’s in-house experts.
Back at Google’s I/O developer conference in the beginning of the year, the company gave attendees a sneak peek at what would eventually become AI Test Kitchen. With this app, the general public will be able to test out and provide comments on Google’s latest AI models.
The company claims it would utilise the app’s data to refine its artificial intelligence products. Through a special website, the general public can submit a request to use Google’s AI Test Kitchen software. Google’s Tris Warkentin and Josh Woodward, who are in charge of product management, announced the rollout on their company blog today.
It was announced in January that Google’s LaMDA natural language processing model will be the first AI system made available to consumers through AI Test Kitchen. Parameters, or settings in an AI’s configuration, are 137 billion in number in LaMDA.
In general, a neural network’s ability to compute increases as the number of parameters increases. When given textual queries from users, LaMDA is meant to respond in a natural language. Google used a 1.56 trillion-word natural language dataset during development to hone the system’s performance.
Three LaMDA-based machine learning tools are now available to AI Test Kitchen customers, according to the search giant. The app’s initial feature is LaMDA’s ability to take a user-supplied objective or topic and generate a list of subtasks. The second instrument tests the system’s attention span and allows users to see how long it takes the system to move on from a specific topic.
Warkentin and Woodward described an application of LaMDA found in AI Test Kitchen that “lets you identify a place and offers paths to explore your idea.” Since introducing LaMDA in January, Google has made several changes to the system to reduce the likelihood that it may produce biassed or offensive results.
Warkentin and Woodward noted, “We have been testing LaMDA internally over the past year, which has resulted in major quality improvements.” Recent rounds of adversarial testing have helped us identify even more problems with the model, so we can confidently call this an ongoing process.
It was announced today that Google has released AI Test Kitchen for Android. Soon, you’ll be able to download the app via Apple Inc.’s App Store if you’re using iOS.
Google may use AI Test Kitchen to get user feedback on LaMDA and possibly other internally built NLP models. The business introduced PaLM in April, an AI system capable of 29 different types of natural language processing.
With 540 billion parameters, this system was trained using a cluster of 6,144 TPU chips from Google, which were designed to handle AI workloads efficiently.
