German tool Aleph Alpha on par with OpenAI models


HeidelbergG, February 20, 2023


The Baden-Württemberg start-up company Aleph Alpha did just as well in a standardized performance comparison with its AI language model Luminous as the previously leading AI specialist OpenAI or the model of the Facebook group Meta .

The scientific comparison consisted of tasks on the classification, evaluation and creation of texts as well as questions on text content.

With Luminous, for the first time, a European AI language model has landed on a par with the American tech giants, explained Jonas Andrulis, founder and CEO of Aleph Alpha. You have not only reached the level of performance, but have also been much more efficient. Compared to the competition, Luminous has about half as many (70 billion) parameters and is therefore twice as efficient at the same level of performance. “Luminous is a strong alternative in many environments and thus an important step towards Europe’s technological sovereignty,” emphasized Andrulis.


OpenAI for two months with ChatGPT is still a tool that attracts millions of nurtzers. The demand is at times so massive that the providers feel compelled to shut down access for a few hours.


The hope that the flow of users would shift after the integration of ChaGPT into the Microsoft search engine Bing has not been fulfilled. Google shows off new AI features while everyone waits for ChatGPT competitor Bard.
