NVIDIA unveiled NeMo SteerLM, which gives developers a type of AI-powered steering wheel to drive powerful large language models (LLMs) in the ways they want. With SteerLM, users define all the attributes they want and embed them in a single model. Then, they can choose the combination they need for a given use case while the model is running.

Unlike current methods for customizing an LLM, it lets a single training run create one model that can serve dozens or even hundreds of use cases, saving time and money. For example, a custom model can now be tuned during inference to the unique needs of, say, an accounting, sales, or engineering department or a vertical market. The method also enables a continuous improvement cycle. Responses from a custom model can serve as data for a future training run that dials the model into new levels of usefulness.

TDengine announced the release of new connectors to support OPC-UA, OPC-DA, and MQTT protocols. These connectors deliver a zero-code solution to easily ingest Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) data into the TDengine platform.

Enterprises can consolidate data across multiple sites into a high-performance time-series database optimized for industrial workloads in only a few minutes with the on-premises TDengine Enterprise or fully managed TDengine Cloud solutions.
