PaLM is the acronym for “Pathway Language Mode“This is a new system created by Google to strengthen the learning and complex reasoning capabilities of Google’s Artificial Intelligence architecture.
PaLM is capable of outperforming current state-of-the-art linguistic models and is even capable of outperforming humans in language and reasoning tests.
One of the main features of the PaLM model is that it is able to abandon previous models of “deep learning“, which are slow and require gigantic amounts of information to begin to develop. This new system uses the “learning from a few examples“, which allows you to learn more in less time.
Deep learning requires a lot of time, information and a lot of human labor, which makes it an inefficient system. However, with the PaLM system it is much simpler and does not require the waste of so many resources.
The goal of this new approach, which the creators of PaLM call “metalearning“, is to approach the way we humans learn. In this way, different bits of knowledge can be applied together to solve new problems, even if they have never been faced before.
In this way, Artificial Intelligence is able to take advantage of all the knowledge at its disposal to solve new problems. For example, PaLM might be able to reason from scratch to solve a problem or to make up a joke.
Pathways is Google’s new AI architecture. Its approach is to create a single AI model that can solve all problems by learning how to solve them, thus avoiding the less efficient way of training thousands of algorithms to complete thousands of different tasks.
In this way, PaLM is able to perform many tasks separately, leverage and combine its existing skills to learn new tasks faster and more efficiently.
PaLM is so sophisticate that it is able to reason, cope with arithmetic problems and even tackle common sense problems. At the same time, it can also explain topics in depth.
