Mixtral 8x22B establishes a new standard for open models.

Mistral AI has launched Mixtral 8x22B, a model that sets a new standard for open-source models in terms of performance and efficiency. This model showcases robust multilingual capabilities and excels in mathematics and coding.

The Mixtral 8x22B functions as a Sparse Mixture-of-Experts (SMoE) model, utilizing just 39 billion of its 141 billion parameters actively. This approach significantly boosts its efficiency.

In addition to its efficiency, Mixtral 8x22B demonstrates fluency across several major languages, including English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish, and is proficient in technical domains due to its strong mathematical and coding capabilities. Remarkably, the model supports native function calling and a 'constrained output mode,' which are essential for large-scale application development and technological advancements.

With an impressive 64K tokens context window, Mixtral 8x22B can accurately recall information from extensive documents, making it highly suitable for enterprise-level use where large data sets are common.

Emphasizing a collaborative and innovative approach to AI research, Mistral AI has released Mixtral 8x22B under the Apache 2.0 license, a permissive open-source license that encourages unrestricted usage and broad adoption.

Statistically, Mixtral 8x22B surpasses many existing models, excelling in head-to-head comparisons on standard industry benchmarks, which include common sense, reasoning, and specialized knowledge tests. Mistral AI's data shows that Mixtral 8x22B significantly outperforms the LLaMA 2 70B model in various linguistic and critical reasoning benchmarks.

Developers and potential users are encouraged to explore Mixtral 8x22B on La Plateforme, Mistral AI’s interactive platform, where they can directly engage with the model.

In a time where AI's influence continues to grow, the introduction of Mixtral 8x22B represents a pivotal moment in the democratization of sophisticated AI tools, combining high performance, efficiency, and open accessibility.
