April Update - 30+ models on Seaplane.io

It's been a while since you last heard from us, and we're excited to bring you the latest updates through our newsletter. We're committed to keeping you in the loop more regularly moving forward. Here's a quick rundown of what's inside:

Quick Summary

March Model Madness

You're probably familiar with the excitement of March Madness, but have you caught wind of March Model Madness yet? This year, Seaplane and the MLOps Community are upping the ante with the most anticipated LLM showdown.

In this event over 20 cutting-edge models are going head-to-head in a blind competition. It's up to our community to decide which models stand out by voting on the most impressive responses.

The competition is fierce across three categories: chat, instruct, and code. Only the top performers will advance, battling it out to earn the title of the ultimate LLM in each category.

But that's not all—we're also spotlighting the artistic side of AI. Four leading image generation models are fighting for the crown of 2024's best image model. Your vote not only helps us pick the best model in each category but also enters you into a raffle to win great prizes.

What's New in the Seaplane SDK

Our recent updates are bringing a ton of new powerful features to the platform. For a deep dive into all our latest improvements, don't forget to check out our technical documentation.

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s new:

A Universe of Models

The Seaplane AI model collection has grown exponentially! We've introduced over 30 generative AI models, making our platform richer and more versatile than ever. Highlights include:

  • Llama Series: A comprehensive across chat, code and instruct models, available in 7b, 13b, 34b, and 70b configurations.
  • Mistral: Versions 0.1 and 0.2 of this 7b model promise incredible speeds with less than 2 seconds of inference time on average prompts while not budging on quality of output.
  • Zephyr 7b: Elevate your AI applications with Zephyr's capabilities.
  • Stable Diffusion XL: Push the boundaries of image generation with this advanced model.
  • Styletts2: A super fast test to speech model that can rival the likes of OpenAI.
  • Claude3 Sonnet and Haiku: Anthropic recently released their new V3 models and they are already available on Seaplane. Said to beat OpenAI’s GPT-4 in many tasks.
  • Gemini-pro: A powerhouse for a range of generative tasks.
  • OpenAI GPT Series: Including, GPT 3.5, GPT 4, and the larger GPT 4-32K.

Accessing these models is a breeze with Substation, our model hub. You can access any of them by changing a single line of code.

Advanced Input, Output, and Routing in DAGs

We've significantly upgraded our Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs) infrastructure to support multiple inputs and outputs. This enhancement simplifies the execution of complex workflows, such as conducting A/B testing or managing parallel data processing paths with ease.

Furthermore, we're excited to introduce conditional routing. This new feature empowers you to direct data flow within your DAGs based on specific criteria, optimizing task execution based on real-time inputs. Learn more about conditional routing in your projects.

Introducing Flightdeck Visualizations

Responding to your feedback, we acknowledge the challenge of managing and debugging large-scale DAGs. To address this, we're proud to unveil our latest feature: Flightdeck DAG Visualizations. This tool enriches Flightdeck by offering an intuitive visual representations of your DAGs, complete with task-level log visibility. Debugging and understanding complex DAGs has never been easier or more efficient.

Demos & Live Events

This quarter, we've been busy at Seaplane creating some truly innovative demos to showcase the capabilities of our platform. Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve been up to:

Personalized AI Shopify Store

A Shopify store that tailors product offerings based on real-time chat interactions with users. We made it happen! This personalized AI-powered shopping experience is a testament to the customizability and power of Seaplane. Watch the demo here or dive into the nuts and bolts of how we built it in our technical deep dive blog post. Did you know that this demo uses Seaplane operated GPUs for incredibly low latency?!

LLM-Powered, RAG-Enabled Voice Assistant

Step aside, Siri and Alexa. We've developed a voice assistant that leverages Large Language Models (LLM) and Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG) for unparalleled performance. The full video demo will be available shortly, but you can get ahead by exploring our technical breakdown now.

Live Coding Session: Build With Us

Don't just watch—participate! Join us for an exciting live coding session where we'll build an LLM-powered, RAG-enabled voice assistant from scratch in just 60 minutes. This is a rare opportunity to see the magic happen in real time and learn how to apply these technologies to your projects. Sign up on LinkedIn to secure your spot.
