NVIDIA Research predicts what’s next in AI, from better weather predictions to digital humans

NVIDIA’s CEO, Jensen Huang, revealed some of the most exciting technological innovations during his keynote presentation at Computex 2024 in early June.  Surpassing Apple to become the second most valuable company in the U.S., NVIDIA and their research team is working on finding breakthroughs that will drive further adoption of AI. Below we explain a […]

How do I start learning about LLM? A beginner’s guide to large language models

In the era of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Large Language Models (LLMs) are redefining our interaction with technology, work, and how we process and understand information.  Performing complex language-related tasks, LLMs are offering new possibilities for many industries, like healthcare, retail, finance and law. Have you considered how LLMs could help you in your day-to-day tasks? […]


Often considered the “brain” of a computer, processors interpret and execute programs and tasks. In an ever-evolving tech landscape, it’s crucial to understand the instances in which various types of processors perform best. Below, let’s break down GPUs and CPUs, what they do and when to use one over the other for various workloads. What’s […]

One-Click Easy Install of ComfyUI

ComfyUI provides users with a simple yet effective graph/nodes interface that streamlines the creation and modification of image generation tasks. The nodes in this interface correspond to different components of the image generation process, including text prompts, image inputs, and various AI-powered filters and augmentations. By connecting these nodes, users can create complex and dynamic […]

Open Source LLMs gain ground on proprietary models

Recently, there have been a few posts about how open-source models like Llama 3 are catching up to the performance level of some proprietary models. Andrew Reed from Hugging Face created a visual representation of a progress tracker to compare various models. It is clearly showing a growing trend that open-source models are gaining ground. […]

Leverage Hugging Face’s TGI to Create Large Language Models (LLMs) Inference APIs – Part 2

Introduction – Multiple LLM APIs If you haven’t already, go back and read Part 1 of this series. In this guide we take a look at how you can serve multiple models in the same VM. As you start to decide how you want to serve models as an inference endpoint you have a few […]

Leverage Hugging Face’s TGI to Create Large Language Models (LLMs) Inference APIs – Part 1

Introduction Are you interested in setting up an inference endpoint for one of your favorite models? Have you been wanting to leverage the full unquantized version of models but found the process too complex or time-consuming? Do you wish there was a simple and efficient way to deploy full models for your own projects or […]
