AI21 Labs claims it’s building the next phase of natural language processing

AI21 Labs, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based AI lab and product company, says it’s developed a new system called the modular reasoning knowledge and language system, or MRKL system (pronounced “miracle”), to augment the power of large language models, enhancing them with discrete reasoning experts like online calculators and currency converters. With its first implementation, Jurassic-X, the MRKL system, includes different language models that it augments with external knowledge sources such as weather apps and Wikidata. [Source]
