Former DeepMind Engineer Develops YugoGPT, a ChatGPT Clone for South Slavic Languages

Aleksa Gordic, founder of Runa AI – a startup building multilingual generative AI foundational models for enterprise – announced the availability of YugoGPT.

Gordic asserts it to be the largest generative language model for Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin languages, built with the idea of ​​teaching it to do more or less the same thing as ChatGPT for English i.e. understand texts, answer questions and acting as an AI assistant for people and companies from the region.

Bosnian, Croatian, Montenegrin and Serbian (BCMS) are mutually intelligible South Slavic languages spoken in Southeastern Europe, namely in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia.

“If you ask ChatGPT how to pay your taxes this year, it will offer you an answer, but it will assume you’re paying in the US. On the other hand, you can train a large language model (LLM) for your own, local needs. That is the advantage of yugoGPT”, said Gordic in an interview with Serbian media Biznis.rs, when asked why the people of the region need chatGPT in their languages.

Motivated by a sense of frustration with the evident shortcomings outside the English Natural Language Processing (NLP) realm, Gordic embarked on the creation of YugoGPT earlier this summer, to elevate the standard of language models beyond the confines of the English-dominated NLP landscape.

“We believe that AI should serve every language, and we are building multilingual GenAI/foundational models for enterprise,” said Aleksa Gordic in a LinkedIn post.

“Our next step will be to raise seed funding, in order to accelerate, get a GPU cluster and build an enterprise LLM platform,” he added.

Unique Capabilities of YugoGPT

“YugoGPT 7B significantly beats Mistral and LLaMA 2 from Meta (formerly Facebook) and is now officially the best open-source LLM in the world for Serbian & other HBS (Croatian, Bosnian, Montenegrin) languages,” Gordic mentioned on LinkedIn.

According to Gordic, it will provide the accessibility of model parameters to individuals and companies. This will enhance flexibility, enabling customization for expertise in diverse fields such as finance, taxes, psychology and more.

Amid concerns over data security and privacy, numerous companies express hesitancy in relying on American APIs, citing discomfort with sending sensitive data to third-party servers. Gordic sheds light on this trend, noting a growing preference for utilizing AI capabilities directly on in-house computing systems.

Gordic emphasizes that having access to the model parameters grants organizations increased control over the AI’s functionalities, addressing the apprehensions associated with third-party involvement.

Gordic, a 2017 graduate in electronics from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Belgrade, worked as a software and machine learning engineer at Microsoft’s Development Center in Serbia on the HoloLens project from 2018 to 2021. Following this, he joined Google’s DeepMind, specializing in language models with image and video comprehension capabilities.
