It had a size of 120n parameters and was trained on 48 million examples from scientific articles, lecture notes, textbooks, websites and other knowledge sources. It was designed to help researchers summarize academic articles, create wiki articles, write scientific code, annotate molecules, and solve mathematical problems.
