SambaNova Systems today announced what could well be one of the largest large language models (LLMs) ever released, with the debut of its one trillion parameter Samba-1.

Samba-1 is not just another entry in the rapidly evolving field of generative AI; it stands out for its commitment to privacy and versatility.

The upshot [of Samba-1] is that it takes a lot less iron to train these models in the enterprise because they are already open-sourced and are already trained and can be re-trained, tuned, and pruned for specific datasets in the enterprise that companies absolutely feel proprietary about.
— Timothy Prickett Morgan, The Next Platform
...performing inference using the model costs ten times less than with competing algorithms. When it receives a prompt, an AI system that comprises multiple neural networks only has to activate the one neural network selected to generate the answer.
— Maria Deutscher, SiliconANGLE
"The beauty of Samba-1 is [that it's] integrated into a fully hardware-encapsulated system that you can deploy in your own private data centres. This could be in your private cloud and allow you to have full control of your data wherever you want to train these models."
— Sky News, Ian King Live
SambaNova...on Wednesday released a generative AI model for companies with one trillion parameters, which is one way to measure model complexity. That matches the reported parameter count for OpenAI’s GPT-4, which hasn’t been released publicly.

Samba-1 enables enterprises to train private data in a private environment, whether on the cloud or on premises. Samba-1 does this by enabling organizations with sensitive data to train that data within their private environment.
