Announcing VILM: Virtual Interactive Language Model

Sep 18th, 2023

When we first embarked on this journey, our name, ViLM, stood for "Vietnamese Language Model." Our initial vision was clear – to develop sophisticated language models catering specifically to the Vietnamese market. Yet, with each advancement we made, we realized our potential stretched far beyond those borders. Our team – a vibrant ensemble of dedicated AI researchers and engineers – has always aspired to make groundbreaking technology accessible to everyone, everywhere.

It's with this widened vision that we're excited to announce a transformative shift in our identity. VILM will now represent "Virtual Interactive Language Model". This evolution embodies our commitment to expand beyond serving just one linguistic community. Our mission is now to develop Multilingual Models and Large Action Models that ensure no language, no matter how vast or limited its speakers, is left behind in the global AI narrative.

But it doesn't end there.

We are about making AI tangible, actionable, and integrated into real-world applications. We call it Actionable AI. It’s AI that does more than understand; it acts, responds, and revolutionizes.

Join us on this renewed journey. Together, we'll shape a future where technology is not just inclusive but also interactive and impactful. Your trust and support have brought us here, and with our refreshed focus, we’re committed to creating even more profound impacts in the AI landscape.

Thank you for being part of our story. The next chapter promises to be even more exciting.

Warm regards,
