Powerful Swedish large-scale language models

There is a tangible need for Swedish language models, both in the public and private sectors. The GPT-SW3 project brings together stakeholders from public sector, industry and academia with the aim of reducing the threshold for using advanced language models to solve text-processing tasks. This will lead to a disruptive change and acceleration in the use of AI-driven Swedish language technology. Seen from a democratic perspective, the models can help bring citizens and customers better services with increased accessibility.
