Gorilla: Large Language Model Connected with Massive APIs
The Gorilla project is designed to connect large language models (LLMs) with a wide range of services and applications exposed through APIs. Imagine if ChatGPT could interact with thousands of services, ranging from Instagram and Doordash to tools like Google Calendar and Stripe, to help you accomplish tasks. This may be how we interact with computers and even the web in the future. Gorilla is an LLM that we train using a concept we call retriever-aware training (RAT), which picks the right API to perform a task that a user can specify in natural language. Gorilla also introduces an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) based sub-tree matching algorithm, which for the first time allows us to measure hallucination of LLMs!
Speaker: Shishir is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UC Berkeley advised by Joseph Gonzalez and Prabal Dutta affiliated with the Sky Computing Lab (previously RISE), Lab11, and Berkeley AI Research (BAIR). He is broadly interested in ML-Systems, and LLMs. Previously he has interned at Google Brain, and Amazon Science, and was at Microsoft Research as a Research Fellow before.

Papers & projects
Agents is an open-source library designed to make it easy for a non-specialist audience to build autonomous language agents that can automatically solve various tasks and interact with environments, humans, and other agents using natural language interfaces.
LEDITS: Real Image Editing with DDPM Inversion and Semantic Guidance
LEDITS is a combined lightweight approach for real-image editing, incorporating the Edit Friendly DDPM inversion technique with Semantic Guidance, to extend Semantic Guidance to real image editing, while harnessing the editing capabilities of DDPM inversion.
RT-2: Vision-Language-Action Models
Vision-language models trained on Internet-scale data can be incorporated into end-to-end robotic control to boost generalization and enable semantic reasoning. The authors propose to co-fine-tune models on robotic trajectory data and Internet-scale vision-language tasks.
DragDiffusion: Harnessing Diffusion Models for Interactive Point-based Image Editing
In this work, the authors extend DragGAN to diffusion models and propose DragDiffusion, improving the applicability of interactive point-based editing in real world scenarios and optimizing the diffusion latent to achieve precise spatial control. Take a look how they did it!
ConsistentNeRF: Enhancing Neural Radiance Fields with 3D Consistency for Sparse View Synthesis
ConsistentNeRF is a method that uses depth information to regularize pixel multi-view and single-view 3D consistency. It uses depth-derived geometry info and a depth-invariant loss to concentrate on pixels that exhibit 3D correspondence and maintain consistent depth relationships. The approach can enhance model performance in sparse view conditions
MagicEdit: High-Fidelity Temporally Coherent Video Editing
MagicEdit is a new approach, allowing to disentangle the learning of appearance and motion to achieve high-fidelity and temporally coherent video editing. It supports various editing applications, including video stylization, local editing, video-MagicMix, and video outpainting.
