Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a global research centre, has launched NOOR, the world’s largest Arabic natural language processing (NLP) model to date. The NOOR model carries out varied, cross-domain tasks simply from natural language instructions.
To build NOOR, researchers at TII designed an end-to-end pipeline for the collection of high-quality data, including crawling, filtering, and curation at scale. TII’s specialists also built optimized services for extreme-scale distributed training and serving – to deliver applications with efficient inference and model specialization.
TII’s team of advanced researchers and specialists at its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Cross-Centre Unit, joined forces on this initiative with LightOn, a technology company that unlocks extreme-scale machine intelligence for businesses, to revolutionize Arabic NLP models. [SOURCE]
