ChatGPT has been popular in the market for a while. Though Meta is no longer sitting back. A new foundational large language model, Large Language Model Meta AI, or LLaMA is being made available to the public today by Meta.

The new AI model is built to assist the scientific community in advancing its research into deep learning, a subset of artificial intelligence. It is interesting to note that this would be Meta’s third LLM, following Glactica and Blender Bot 3, both of which were immediately discontinued due to incorrect results.

“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,” Mark Zuckerberg said on Instagram and Facebook today.

Is LLaMA a chatbot?

LLaMA is not like Bing or ChatGPT; It is not a system that can be contacted by anyone. Meta says that it is a research tool that will probably solve problems with AI language models. In a simpler tone, to assist experts in identifying issues with AI language models, such as bias, toxicity, and their propensity to simply fabricate information.

Much like any other LLM (Large Language Models), LLaMA creates text recursively by taking a sequence of words as input and anticipating the next word. The team decided to train the model with text from the top 20 languages, particularly those that use the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets.

The past few months have been exciting for the individuals interested in technology and software. The new buzz created by Meta will generate more investments in this line as well. However, in order to curb any misuse, Meta stated that LLaMA is being made available under a noncommercial license, which means that it can only be used for research purposes, to preserve its integrity and prevent any sort of exploitation.
