DFKI in OpenGPT-X – networking, researching and usage models
DFKI’s work on OpenGPT-X is undertaken by experts from the DFKI research area Speech and Language Technology (SLT) based in the Berlin lab. The goals and priorities of DFKI in OpenGPT-X can be divided into three areas:
(i) research on GPT3-like language models and development of language services that use the language models developed in OpenGPT-X,
(ii) provision of a Gaia-X node and establishment of interoperability with other existing AI platforms (including the European Language Grid), and
(iii) analysis and specification of sustainable usage and business models. In addition, DFKI contributes to the project’s communication and dissemination activities.
