#definition : This is a sentence-transformers model: It maps sentences & paragraphs to a 384 dimensional dense vector space and can be used for tasks like clustering or semantic search. It is distilled from thenlper/gte-small, with comparable (slightly worse) performance at around half the size.


  • It’s around ~45MB very small compared to other models like MiniLM-L6-V2 which is equal to ~80 MB
  • Embedding vector size 384d
  • BERT based
  • Distilied from thenlper/gte-small,

Notice about using small size
