Kerstin Bach new research director of NorwAI
Three years into NorwAI’s work periode, professor Kerstin Bach is appointed the new scientific director of the research center. Her predecessor is off on sabbatical. Nevertheless, there is anticipation tied to her taking on the new position.
New language model for public use this winter
- NorwAI will meet the immense interest to work with language models with an open model, smaller thant that of the research model NorGPT-23 but will still be fully operational, says Jon Atle Gulla, professor and director at NorwAI.

Large language models as public goods
Large language models have huge potential for value creation - but there is a strong need to address issues of control and risk mitigation.
We are now moving towards a huge change in intellectual value creation, powered by the weird and surprisingly sophisticated mimicry of intelligence powered by large language models (LLMs).
These models have unleashed a wave of creativity. They, and their model cousins that can process, transform and generate sound, images and any digitizable data, have enabled previously impossible products and services along with a torrent of hype.
Due to the enormous amounts of data, compute and brain power required, these important platforms are now mostly developed and controlled by a few very large private technology companies in the US. This is problematic, because along with all the interesting new functionality, large language models also suffer from serious and complicated challenges such as bias, hallucinations and toxicity. Private companies will invariably balance mitigating these issues with the need for profit. They are likely to do the bare minimum required to avoid regulatory retribution and public relations backlash.
Research stay at Brown university
