I am a Lead Research Scientist at Allen Institute for AI (AI2) in the AllenNLP team, and the Research Lead of the OLMo project. OLMo aimes to build “state-of-the-art”, “truly-open” LLMs to narrow the gap between open and proprietary research. My role started with ideation and feasibility studies before the project’s inception, continuing through to the present where we now have a mature, large, corss-team project.
