Guanaco is an LLM based off the QLoRA 4-bit finetuning method developed by Tim Dettmers et. al. in the UW NLP group. Guanaco achieves 99% ChatGPT performance on the Vicuna benchmark.
Guanaco is an LLM that uses a finetuning method called LoRA that was developed by Tim Dettmers et. al. in the UW NLP group. With QLoRA, it becomes possible to finetune up to a 65B parameter model on a 48GB GPU without loss of performance relative to a 16-bit model. The Guanaco model family outperforms all previously released models on the Vicuna benchmark. However, given the models are based off of the LLaMA model family, commercial use is not permitted.

Released alongside Koala, Vicuna is one of many descendants of the Meta LLaMA model trained on dialogue data collected from the ShareGPT website. According to the authors, Vicuna achieves more than 90% of ChatGPT's quality in user preference tests, while vastly outperforming Alpaca. As of May 2023, Vicuna seems to be the heir apparent of the instruct-finetuned LLaMA model family, though it is also restricted from commercial use.
