Weekly round-up: Deploy Flan-T5 XL on Baseten

Flan-T5 XL is an open-source large language model developed by Google. Flan-T5 is an instruction-tuned model, meaning that it exhibits zero-shot-like behavior when given instructions as part of the prompt. You can learn more about instruction tuning on Google's blog.

The model also comes with a starter app so that you can experiment with instruction tuning. You can give it a try here!
