🌳 The World's Greenest AI Model: RWKV's Pioneering Sustainability
10-100x lower inference cost = lower carbon footprint
With the rapidly growing usage of AI models worldwide, and the threat of global warming. The need for a greener AI model to reduce our carbon footprint is more important than ever.
In that regard, we are proud to say that RWKV (the model which our team works on), has been independently benchmarked as the world's greenest and most energy-efficient AI model/architecture, on a per token output basis, for models of the same param sizes (7B params).
The energy efficiency of the RWKV architecture is derived from the 10-100 times compute efficiency of our linear transformer architecture vs the quadratic scaling of transformer architectures. A benefit we expect to scale better as our models get large
Combined with how RWKV models scales similarly to transformers in evals, against other models with the same dataset.
The industry wide benefits for scaling more energy efficient architecture, like RWKV, will be significant for our industry as a whole.
Towards a future with more, not less alternatives to AI,
with the various unique benefits each architecture will bring us.
