May 08, 2024 — New model for vector embedding — Preview

We’re pleased to announce a change that will make it easier for you to build generative AI workflows using the EMBED_TEXT_768 (SNOWFLAKE.CORTEX) function, part of the Cortex LLM Functions.

  • The snowflake-arctic-embed-m model is now available for text embedding tasks. This model was trained by Snowflake. It outperforms the existing e5-base-v2 model on standard retrieval benchmarks, while keeping the same number of parameters. Read more in the model announcement blog.
