Big Takeaway: Paris-based AI startup Mistral is working on a new version that may rival or exceed OpenAI’s GPT-4, confirmed after a leak on HuggingFace.

The model, named "miqu-1-70b," was leaked and shared on HuggingFace and 4chan. It got a lot of attention because it did well on benchmarks for popular language models.
