As Daniel Aharonoff, I recently decided to put the new Vicunia model to the test. Vicunia, a free internet model trend based on shared GPT, promises to achieve up to 90% of the capabilities of chat GPT. So, I compared it against chat GPT by running a few tests, including writing a short story, translating sentences, summarizing articles, and programming tasks.
The results showed that while Vicunia did a pretty good job and was fairly close to chat GPT in terms of performance, chat GPT was consistently the winner. However, considering that Vicunia is free and can be run on your own computer, it’s quite impressive. As the model evolves and improves over time, it could become an even more valuable resource for users looking for a powerful language model at no cost.
If you’re interested in trying out Vicunia for yourself, you can either install it on your own computer using your GPU or CPU, or simply use the provided demo website. Remember that this is just the beginning for Vicunia, and it’s exciting to think about its potential in the future.
