Microsoft has introduced Phi-3 Mini, a compact AI model with 3.8 billion parameters, tailored for smaller datasets. Available on Azure, Hugging Face, and Ollama, it enhances the capabilities of its predecessor, Phi-2, performing comparably to much larger models.

Designed for efficiency, Phi-3 Mini operates effectively on personal devices and is set to be joined by Phi-3 Small and Phi-3 Medium. The model was trained using a novel "curriculum" based on children's bedtime stories, streamlining complex topics with basic vocabulary.

Phi-3 Mini excels in coding and reasoning, suitable for companies with limited data, offering an economical alternative to larger, power-intensive models.

This launch signifies Microsoft's shift towards more accessible, smaller-scale AI models, emphasizing innovation and cost-effectiveness.
