Revealing a little more about the members of team xAI, the company said that its constituent members have worked on projects like the Adam optimizer, Batch Normalization, Layer Normalization, and the discovery of adversarial examples.
"We further introduced innovative techniques and analyses such as Transformer-XL, Autoformalization, the Memorizing Transformer, Batch Size Scaling, and μTransfer. We have worked on and led the development of some of the largest breakthroughs in the field including AlphaStar, AlphaCode, Inception, Minerva, GPT-3.5, and GPT-4," it adds.
