Weights & Biases Announces W&B Weave - the Lightweight Toolkit for Developers to Deploy Generative AI Applications with Confidence


Fully Connected ? Weights & Biases, the AI developer platform, today announced W&B Weave at their annual conference Fully Connected. W&B Weave is a lightweight toolkit for software developers who want to deploy generative AI applications with confidence, providing software developers with a system of record for the experimental large language model (LLM) application development process.

W&B Weave extends the Weights & Biases AI developer platform beyond machine learning practitioners who want to build and train large scale models to serve software developers who want to build applications with LLMs. Over the last 6 years, Weights & Biases has enabled the most innovative foundation model builders to create the generative AI industry. Today, Weights & Biases is used by over 30 foundation model builders and 1,000 companies to productionize machine learning at scale.

Since the emergence of LLMs such as OpenAI's GPT 3.5, Anthropic's Claude 2, Meta's Llama 2, and Mistral's Mixtral 8x7B, every organization has been challenged to define and execute their generative AI strategy. While it's easy to create a generative AI demo, it's hard to confidently deploy a generative AI application into production given the risks of abuse, misalignment, and hallucinations.

Building software with LLMs is fundamentally different from traditional software development as LLMs are non-deterministic by nature. The solution to this challenge is to treat the model as a closed system where only the inputs and outputs are visible and follow a scientific workflow. This experimental workflow is similar to the workflow machine learning practitioners use to build these LLMs in the first place.

W&B Weave was built to enable this experimental workflow:

"We built Weave for developers to support the scientific workflow of building AI applications," said Shawn Lewis, CTO at Weights & Biases. "We made it lightweight and practical with minimal abstractions. We built the tools that helped bring LLMs into the world. Now we're building tools to make them work in production applications."

W&B Weave has two components:

"I like Weave both conceptually and in practice," said Jonathan Whitaker, AI Researcher at Answer.AI. "I want a lightweight tool that fits into my workflow, rather than a tool that imposes a new workflow on me. Weave achieves this by making it easy to decorate a few functions and then persistently capture the LLM inputs and outputs."
