The Importance of the Feed Forward Network in Transformer Architecture
One of the most significant components of the Transformer architecture is the Feed Forward Network (FFN), and it plays a crucial role in the model’s performance. In this work, the researchers explore the function of FFN and find that it takes up a large portion of the model’s parameters, but is actually highly redundant. They were able to reduce the number of parameters while maintaining accuracy.
The Role of FFN in Transformer Architecture
The FFN in Transformer architecture is a key component that non-linearly transforms each input token independently. Despite its large proportion of the model’s parameters, research has shown that it is highly redundant. By reducing the number of parameters, researchers were able to maintain a high level of accuracy in the model’s performance.
The Impact of Reducing Parameters in Transformer Architecture
Reducing the number of parameters in the Transformer architecture can lead to a more efficient and effective model. This research shows that focusing on the role of FFN can result in a more optimized and streamlined architecture. This has significant implications for the future development of AI technology.
