Google Cloud now offers Gemma open models

Google today unveiled Gemma, a line of cutting-edge, lightweight open models developed using the same science and technology as the Gemini models.

Gemma, which was created by Google DeepMind and various other Google teams, was named after the Latin gemma, which means “precious stone.”

When compared to other open models, this allows Gemma models to achieve best-in-class performance for their sizes

The Gemma 2B and Gemma 7B model weights are the two sizes that they are releasing. There are trained and fine-tuned versions available for every size

Using Gemma, a new Responsible Generative AI Toolkit offers instructions and necessary resources for developing safer AI applications

Google is offering native Keras 3.0 toolchains for inference and supervised fine-tuning (SFT) across all major frameworks, including PyTorch, TensorFlow, and JAX

Pre-trained and fine-tuned Gemma open models can be easily deployed on Vertex AI and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and run on your laptop, workstation, or Google Cloud

Gemma has joined more than 130 models in the Vertex AI Model Garden, which now includes the Gemini 1.0 Pro, 1.0 Ultra, and 1.5 Pro models
