Leaked Google Document Reveals Challenges in Maintaining Competitive Edge in AI

Leaked Google Document Reveals Challenges in Maintaining Competitive Edge in AI

An anonymous individual shared a leaked document on a public Discord server from a researcher within Google, SemiAnalysis confirmed. The document highlights that although OpenAI and Google are in a race to develop the most advanced language models, their progress is quickly being overshadowed by the advancements made in the open-source community.

The document contains the personal opinions of a Google employee and doesn’t represent the views of the company as a whole. According to Bloomberg, Luke Sernau, the senior software engineer at Google, shared the document on an internal platform within the company about a month ago.

“While our models still hold a slight edge in terms of quality, the gap is closing astonishingly quickly. Open-source models are faster, more customizable, more private, and pound-for-pound more capable. They are doing things with $100 and 13B params that we struggle with at $10M and 540B. And they are doing so in weeks, not months,”

the document read.

The company’s approach to language models was called into question. Sernau wrote that Google does not possess a “secret sauce” and instead should look to learn from and collaborate with external efforts. The document emphasized the importance of enabling third-party integrations and acknowledged that people are unlikely to pay for a restricted model when free alternatives of comparable quality exist. Sernau also argued that the pursuit of giant language models was impeding progress and suggested that smaller variants should receive more attention. The document concluded that the best models, in the long run, are those that can be quickly iterated upon.

The chart, which includes the “2 weeks apart” and “1 week apart” labels, was derived from a chart in the Vicuna 13-B announcement. The author modified the original chart to illustrate the rapid development of LLaMA Vicuna and Alpaca following the LLaMA development.

Google’s attempts to safeguard its technological advantages from competitors like OpenAI have proven challenging. Moreover, with the growing collaboration within the research community, maintaining a competitive edge has become even more difficult. With affordable access to cutting-edge research on LLMs, institutions worldwide are conducting studies that far surpass Google’s capacity. Sernau suggests that Google can either cling to its secrets while outside innovation dilutes its value or look to learn from others in the research community.
