JAIS 30B Chat sets new industry standards with its exceptional generative AI capabilities, excelling in cross-lingual conversations, retrieval-augmented generation (RAG), summarization, content generation, and reasoning. Tailored to the intricacies of the Arabic language, it addresses critical technology gaps for Arabic speakers.

Trained on a dataset of 1.63 trillion tokens, including 475 billion Arabic tokens, JAIS 30B Chat benefits from a code-augmented bilingual training dataset, enhancing its logical reasoning abilities in both Arabic and English.
