On Friday the CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg announced the release of a new extensive language model for researchers by meta under the project name called LLaMA. This step is taken with the vision of helping scientists and engineering, making the exploration of AI applications easier for them. It will be easy for them to get appropriate responses to their queries.
Mark Zuckerberg shared his views on Friday and wrote, “LLMs have shown a lot of promise in generating text, having conversations, summarizing written material, and more complicated tasks like solving math theorems or predicting protein structures,”
According to Meta, the LLM is different in several ways from its competitive models like it will be available in different sizes, from 7 billion parameters to 65 billion parameters. As larger models have a history of being worldwide recognized for providing the best-expanded network of technology but they are most costly to operate, which is termed “inference” by the users.
Meta has also announced to make its models accessible to the public and is receiving applications from users, making sure to provide such a model that is available to all. The underlying models of Google’s LaMDA and ChatGPT from OpenAI are not available publically.
Mark Zuckerberg further wrote, “Meta is committed to this open model of research and we’ll make our new model available to the AI research community.”
