Where does releasing model weights fit into company strategy? 3 requirements, 3 actions, and 3 benefits of being in the open LLM space.
Adding another benefit: open-sourcing models can be compared to the Linux Red Hat strategy.
Just as some opt to self-host and manage Linux, some companies will choose to pay for the added convenience and support of Red Hat's services.
This creates a win-win situation, broadening access while also opening up revenue streams for the model creators.
