Meta introduces LLaMA to compete with GPT-3 and LaMDA

In an industry that has recently been dominated by internet competitors Google and Microsoft, Meta unveiled a research tool for creating chatbots and other products based on artificial intelligence. Meta’s newest contribution to the field of large language models is LLaMA.

Meta’s social media sites, Facebook and Instagram, do not currently use LLaMA. The business intends to give researchers studying AI access to the technology.

“As part of Meta’s commitment to open science, we are publicly releasing LLaMA (Large Language Model Meta AI), a state-of-the-art foundational large language model designed to help researchers advance their work in this subfield of AI. Smaller, more performant models such as LLaMA enable others in the research community who don’t have access to large amounts of infrastructure to study these models, further democratizing access in this important, fast-changing field,” Meta wrote in a blog.

Massive AI systems known as “large language models” ingest immense amounts of digital text from news stories, social media posts, and other online sources. They then use that information to train software that can independently predict and generate content when given a prompt or query.

The models can generate chatbot chats, write articles, compose tweets, and recommend computer program code.

Meta LLaMA vs GPT-3 vs LaMDA

As more businesses have started to develop them and launch tests of goods based on the models, the technology has gained popularity and drawn controversy in recent months, highlighting a new field of rivalry among tech titans. Microsoft has committed billions of dollars to OpenAI, which created the GPT-3 big language model that powers the ChatGPT chatbot. This month, the software developer introduced a beta version of its Bing search engine using OpenAI’s conversation technology, which immediately sparked worries about its occasionally inappropriate responses.

The Linguistic Model for Dialogue Applications, or LaMDA, is used by Alphabet’s Google. The industry leader in internet search and advertising is piloting Bard, an AI-powered chat-based search solution that, unfortunately, has some bugs.

OPT-175B, a sizable language model that Meta had previously released, has been superseded by the more recent and sophisticated LLaMA. Galactica, another model Meta introduced late last year, was soon taken back after researchers found that it consistently provided users with biased or false information.

On earnings conference calls and interviews, Zuckerberg frequently discusses the value of AI in enhancing Meta’s products, as he has made it a primary focus within the firm. Although LLaMA is not now utilized in Meta products, it might be in the future.
